Users of BM Aluminium’s LogiKal software now have access to the dataset for Deceuninck’s newly launched Decalu aluminium system, thanks to the work of programming teams in the UK and Germany.
Dean Hodges, Managing Director of BM Aluminium, says work was going on throughout the lockdown to ensure that the dataset was added to the list of databases available within LogiKal, as soon as the industry got back to work.
He said: “We understand just how important it is to Deceuninck to make it as easy as possible for fabricators to add Decalu to their product range. With so many UK fabricators already using LogiKal for their aluminium processing and pricing, having the dataset available from the outset is obviously an essential part of that.
“We worked with the team at Orgadata in Germany, who are the developers of LogiKal, to make sure everything was ready on time, and we’ve made sure that our installations and support team are ready to support fabricators as they get started.”
Nigel Headford, Deceuninck’s Business Development Director for Aluminium, agreed: “This represents an important step for us in terms of the launch of Decalu in the UK because so many of our target customers are already using LogiKal. It couldn’t be simpler – all they have to do is add the additional dataset to their current software installation and they can be up and running straightaway. We’re promoting Decalu as a fabricator-friendly system and this is yet more evidence of that.”
Existing LogiKal users can add the Decalu dataset via a simple update. Fabricators who want to start using the system but who are not yet LogiKal users can contact BM Aluminium to receive an installation pack and request a remote training session.
Dean Hodges added: “We were remote training even before the lockdown, so we’ve got a really good system in place to walk customers through the software online and provide all the help and advice they need.”
All of the UK’s leading aluminium profile databases are available within LogiKal, making it possible for fabricators who use more than one system to switch effortlessly between products and giving them the freedom to build their own bespoke ranges, including new options such as Decalu.
