LGSF is also satisfied with the importing and exporting of various file formats, including IFC, allowing effortless cross-checking of associated building elements with other suppliers and designers.

From repetitive tasks into a mouse click

“With help of the Vertex development team, we can customize the software to incorporate our bespoke design elements, reducing repetitive and time-consuming design tasks into a single mouse click”, Mr. Cade explains.

“Our development as a company has benefited greatly from using Vertex BD software, especially from having the local support team to assist with our development and queries”, he adds.
