Drafix Software Inc., a provider of landscape design software, has released a new version of its PRO Landscape design software.
The company says the new PRO Landscape Version 22 gives users all the tools necessary to create high-quality photo imaging designs, accurate site plans in any size or scale, as well as complete proposals.
Because the software enables landscape contractors, designers, architects and garden centers to create designs that are easy to communicate – and to do so quickly – sales cycles are shortened significantly, the company says, while closing ratios improve.
The new version of the software also includes the free PRO Landscape Companion app for iPad and Android tablets. With the app, landscapers can create imaging designs, base plans and quick proposals in a mobile environment.
Drafix Software says PRO Landscape Version 22 contains a variety of new features and improvements to existing capabilities, along with the addition of more than 1,000 new images to the library, bringing the total to over 14,000.
Version 22 also contains an extra 2,000 commercial planter images for those designing interiorscapes. Other new features include an “architectural” font, new hatch patterns and new symbols.
Drafix Software President Pete Lord said many of the new features of PRO Landscape Version 22 were added in response to customer feedback. “Most notable,” he said, “are the mobile CAD capability and the web downloadable installation, which are both in direct response to requests from our customers.”
PRO Landscape Version 22 is compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10. The software will run on a Mac if the appropriate Windows software is installed.
Version 22 sells for $1,495. Current PRO Landscape users can upgrade to the newest version starting at $295, depending on their current version.
PRO Landscape Version 22 is currently shipping in English, with Spanish, Italian and German versions to be available later in 2016, according to Drafix. For more information, visit the company website here.
