Arcadia has been working in computer industry for 26 years producing, with passion and attention to detail, the ADA System, a software that allows furniture companies to manage more effectively the production and distribution of their products and to offer a better service to retailers. Arcadia is proud to put on the market the result of the last years of research and development that has brought to a completely renewed software and satisfy better and faster the customer.
The new version of ADA system for the furniture chain stands out for flexibility, precision, integration, customization and a greater focus on ease of use. The core of the new ADA system is the cloud. This means increased performances, thanks to the global and timely availability of software updates and catalogs. However, the real innovation is under the hood of ADA system which is a complete rewrite of the code according to the most modern style, in other words with a modular architecture that will enable faster future developments, extreme customization and superior quality of the code itself. The ADA system stands out from competitors thanks to its integration capabilities, spreading from the producer to the reseller. The main actors of the new ADA system are:

ADA IDP

ADA IDP is the software that allows to extract all the processes for the components (base, sides, shelves, desks plans, etc.) and integrates them to calculate the full process for the individual element, generating a neutral CAM file that not depends on the machine to which it is intended. This file will be subsequently translated in the specific language of the machine to be used by an appropriately customized Post-Processor.

Designed with contextual user interface it is equipped with an extensive set of commands that enhance the skills of the designer. The CAM allows the definition and management of planar machining contouring, point-to-point and the automatic processing of data for CNC machines.

Arcadia has not stopped its software evolution trying to put, even more, at the core of the entire business plan the customer and his needs increasingly aimed to services. Three consequences derives from this choice. First: Arcadia guarantees, unique among competitors, a free telephone support for points of sale. Second: Arcadia has deeply changed its business model to allow stores to enjoy ADA system without fixed license costs by opting for a membership system and facilitating the purchase of manufacturers’ catalogs by foreign stores thanks to an online store without the need of hardware keys. Third: Arcadia started a new way on communication and marketing to improve relationship with the customers better understanding their needs. These are the first results of an important effort spent in research and development, an investment that Arcadia made to provide its customers with a software platform that can help them in the future with the same professional service and competence they have experienced so far.
