We recently wrote about the difference between an Extension and a Catalogue. Both are great options – and can be combined – to enter products into CET Designer. Catalogues was released in November last year and we pondered over what to call it. We needed something that would make it stand out from the rest of the catalogs out there. So would it be pretentious to use the English...
Selling kitchens and office furniture is a complex and time-consuming task. Too much non-value-added time is spent dealing with technical details. From previously being a traditional and largely localized industry, the Kitchen and Bath Industry now quickly moves toward becoming globalized, with high demands on rapid product development and efficient sales channels. The companies that...
We’ve always supported our local Universities in the regions where our offices are located. Göran Rydqvist and Johan Lyreborn were recent graduates from Linköping University in 1990 when they first founded Configura so recruiting new graduates has always been important to us. We’re now expanding our support of Universities into the United States by offering our CET...
Twice a year, we hold a Partner Meeting. A longer way of putting it would be to say: Twice a year, we bring together some of the largest competitors in office furniture manufacturing to meet in person, in the same room, for half a day.

As technology evolves, and new demands arise, we need to continue to improve so we’re not left behind. For example, our users have been requesting 24-hour global support – and, a few weeks ago, we...
A lot of companies today overlook or downplay the importance of support. They put a lot of resources into developing and selling a product but minimize the undeniably large cost of supporting that product. They might move support overseas to save costs, or automate a lot of support functions. Customers are often greeted by a machine or “elevator” music to keep them calm as they wait...
Which is the best solution for you? Configura delivers two solutions. One solution is Parametric Graphical Configuration (PGC), which is implemented through a programmed product Extension to  CET Designer. The other solution is Catalogues, a databasedriven implementation of ‘simpler’ or so-called solitary products. These two solutions complement each other in a unique way. With...

Android, iOS SDK, WinDev Mobile and many more such environments are now available to the public, enabling virtually anyone to make their ideas reality and contribute to technical advancements. Configura’s business idea is similar....
In a previous blog post, we talked about “Why your company needs a configurator.” In this post, we’ll dig deeper into the subject and talk about some terminology and the logic behind our specific solution. In a number of industries – office/contract furniture, kitchen and bath, material handling, industrial machinery, healthcare, laboratory, demountable walls, shelving...
