Configura re-enters European office-furniture market with UK-based Bisley

Bisley is first European office-furniture customer on next generation of Configura’s software


Linköping, SWEDEN—Sept. 5, 2012—Configura, maker of CET Designer® software, announces its newest client: Bisley of the United Kingdom, a major manufacturer of steel storage products for the global office furniture industry. Bisley has selected Configura to produce a CET Designer Extension for its product lines.

With Bisley, Configura re-enters the European office furniture market as a provider of design-specification-rendering-ordering software. Configura also has active office furniture customers in North and South America and in its native Sweden and Scandinavia.

“CET Designer is a platform for all markets and all products. Signing Bisley is proof that Configura’s vision is possible: to be the global provider and leader of design and specification solutions for industries across the board,” Configura CEO Johan Lyreborn said.

In addition to the office furniture industry, Configura also provides products and services for the kitchen and bath, material handling and industrial machinery industries.

“Our objective as a company is to continuously push the boundaries of world-class manufacturing excellence,” Bisley Marketing Manager Bruce Whitfield said. “Investing in a CET Designer Extension by Configura is an integral part of our commitment to manufacturing and product excellence and a great customer experience.”

Bisley controls about 50 percent of the United Kingdom’s storage furniture market and exports to 65 countries. The company is widely known for its MultiDrawer units.

“CET Designer is able to handle the complexity of Bisley’s products with ease,” Configura Key Account Manager Martin Larsson said. “That’s a key reason Bisley chose Configura’s solution.”

Said Lyreborn: “Bisley and all of our customers are collaborators with us in the process of bringing a truly comprehensive design and specification solution to the entire office furniture industry. Together, we’re simplifying the manufacturing and sales process.”
