CabMaster Software (then ‘Quisine Software’) was first produced for a large joinery business called Barnsley Joinery as the solution to producing 120+ kitchens a week. This application ran on a PDP-11 “mini” computer that occupied rooms, running on an RSX (Digital Equipment Corporation “DEC”) in conjunction with Palette CAD system.
CabMaster was rewritten to transform the MS-DOS C system into the Microsoft Windows 32-bit environment.
CabMaster Software began broadening its offering to expand its capability of being the only true end-to-end process automation package.
CabMaster (still “Quisine” at this time) was the first application of its type that offered electronic commerce capabilities.
The 5th generation of CabMaster Design and Manufacturing Software was released to meet the evolving demands of the business community.
CabMaster launched its first design-only version of the software: DesignersMate. This product was targeted at the professional designer and those businesses that operate in the “built to order” catalogue market in the US.
CabMaster launched the first version of DoorMaster Software (then “Quisine Door Profiler”). This is a specialized package that meets the needs of the most demanding door manufacturers. The development effort was undertaken in conjunction with a business called Modern Form Doors.
CabMaster commenced to OEM its core technology to other software companies who were looking to complement their existing product offerings.
The Melbourne dealer of Quisine and a Melbourne CNC Salesperson entered into a partnership. Mike and Tony bought out QST Systems’ previous owners.
The first thing they noticed was a great lack of support for our customers. So, they moved the head office to Melbourne and rebuilt the business from the foundation.
To do this, we engaged a mix of tradespeople and IT people to broaden our industry experience.
By training our staff with such knowledge, it meant that we could more effectively assist our customers, from software and CNC installations to everyday support queries.
Through constant assessment of the ever-changing industry and client needs across the world, we rebranded our business under the banner of CabMaster Software.
CabMaster officially tripled our support staff and doubled our development team. And we’ve done so in an effort to get a better product to our customers in a quicker timeframe.
