Here at RIB, we’ve already done the majority of the development for you and you’ll be instantly adding tried and tested technology into your program. Supplied with a DLL that can be simply called from the host application, all data necessary for storing the measurement information is held in the host software database, and the technology is suitable for standalone and networked software applications. It’s never been easier to propel your products to the next level.
You’ll benefit by becoming a RIB partner by being able to offer the leading takeoff product customised to your precise designation. Our partner network all receive considerable incentives and perks.
