partnership with leading providers of carpet retail management
software, we have developed a carpet laying application called
FloorRight is more than just estimation software. It jumps
past simple estimation by working as a sales tool as well.
It provides an interactive interface for the estimator to
customize the layout. When the estimator is finished it computes
final costs and provides seam and roll printouts for the installer,
as well as a finished bid for the customer.
FloorRIght uses Saltire-developed algorithms to compute near
optimal layouts of carpet subject to customer-specified constraints
such as the number and orientation of seams. This product
is revolutionizing the carpet industry and reducing the time
and cost of flooring esitmation and installation.

software for Windows.
"SketchRight is the most powerful and simple field drawing program
I have ever used--tripling my productivity." -- Ken
Baines, President of a Lease Analysis firm
Saltire Software's SketchRight™ software is specifically
designed for use in the field to automate your dimensioning
and drawing activities. The unique aspect of SketchRight™
is that with this system you can create a scaled drawing from
a rough sketch automatically. First sketch the area of interest
with a pen, mouse, trackball or touchpad; then as you select
each line you enter its exact length and the drawing rescales
itself automatically. You can interrogate the drawing at any
time for virtually any dimensional information about the drawing
such as areas, perimeters, angles, etc. What could be easier.
SketchRight™ includes various features such as lines styles,
colors and fill patterns, symbol capability, DXF in and out, and printing
to a specified scale or fit to page. For pen users SketchRight™
supports its own set of geometry recognizers.
Currently SketchRight™ can be used in conjunction with Leica's
DATA DISTO range finding unit. This allows dimensions
to be entered automatically without having to write or type them into
the computer, virtually eliminating transcription and measuring errors.
Just aim the DATA DISTO between the points to measure and it instantly
takes a reading accurate to an eighth of an inch and rescales the drawing.
Imagine no more measurement errors, transcription errors, or dimensioning
The SketchRight™ user interface has been optimized to take advantage
of three primary elements. First, the geometry recognizer allows arcs,
lines, rectangles, and circles to be entered as easily as if you were
sketching with pencil and paper. Secondly, Saltire's patented constraint
engine evaluates the dimensions on the drawing and redraws the geometry
to those precise dimensions. Both of these capabilities are simply not
available in typical drawing programs. Not only are the results much more
legible and dimensionally accurate than pencil and paper, but the drawing
is to scale. Redrawing to precise dimensions alerts the user if an incorrect
dimension has been entered. Finally, Saltire has focused on field ease-of-use
by allowing the user to create custom "drag-and-drop" symbol libraries.
This saves end user time and fosters consistency across drawings.
SketchRight™ is ideal for anyone that needs to take field measurements
and make decisions from those measurements such as -- Condition Assessment
Personnel, Architects, Office Furniture and Space Planners, Facilities
or Retail Store Layout Personnel, Appraisers, Assessors, Interior Designers,
Lease Space Analysts, Building and Safety Inspectors, and Law Enforcement
Agencies. SketchRight runs on any Windows based computer and
connects to the Disto through the serial port.
