Start Software and CADBuilder announce plans to link systems and services

We're pleased to announce an exciting new Tracker development - an automatic link between Tracker and the CADBuilder service (

Tracker is the UK's leading system for asbestos and environmental consultancies.  Used by most of the UK's leading asbestos consultancies to improve efficiency and increase productivity, Tracker is popular with surveyors because it uses hand-held pocket PC phones for on-site data capture.  The small devices are perfect for data entry but less successful when sketching plans, and so paper is still the preferred drawing option for many firms and surveyors.

CADBuilder is a proven, high-quality and very cost-effective service which turns paper sketches & drawings and converts them into CAD drawings within 48 hours.  With a proven track record in other markets, CADBuilder has been looking to increase its market share within the asbestos industry for some time.  This makes the link-up with Tracker the perfect option.

The new Tracker/CADBuilder module will automate the process of taking the surveyor's hand-drawn sketch and turning it into a CAD drawing ready for use within Tracker.  The surveyor will simply take a photo of his/her sketch whilst on site and use the Tracker Mobile system to transmit the hand-drawn plan.  Within 48 hours, the finished CAD drawing will appear within the Tracker project folder, completely automatically.

Initial pricing for the Tracker/CADBuilder module has been set at £1,995+vat (including setup and installation). Tracker customers should contact CADBuilder direct to discuss pricing (based on estimate document volumes).  Free trials are available for both the Tracker module and the CADBuilder service.
