Transoft Solutions Acquires UK Based Design Pro Software


Vancouver, BC, Canada

Suite of BIM Solutions Adds to Growing Line of Civil and Transportation Design Software

Transoft Solutions, Inc., developers of world-leading software solutions for transportation and traffic engineering professionals, today announced the acquisition of Design Pro Software based in the UK.

The acquisition of Design Pro and its highly touted line of Sign Design and Lane Marking solutions is a testament to Transoft’s goal to further serve its customer base and address localized needs. The placement of a UK office, in addition to existing offices in the Netherlands, Sweden and Germany, enhances Transoft’s level of service within EMEA, a growing market for the leading-edge global software company. Mr. Milton Carrasco, CEO & President of Transoft Solutions, added that “Transoft Solutions (UK) office will see growth as we continue to develop products for the local, Middle East and European regions while at the same time, integrating BIM and 3D technologies into Transoft’s current products.  Our software support in the UK will be even further enhanced by this acquisition. We welcome Martin and the Design Pro team to the Transoft family, as we continue to provide nothing but the very best products and outstanding services for our customers.”

Mr. Martin Quigley, Managing Director of Design Pro Software, will join Transoft Solutions where his deep knowledge of the local market and experience with BIM-related technologies will be heavily relied on for Transoft’s continued growth. When asked about what excited him most about joining Transoft, Mr. Quigley replied, “When I flew to Vancouver to meet Transoft, “the company”, what stood out above all else and has left a lasting impression was how everyone supports one another. From Sales to Development there is no individual, it’s very much a family with an obvious internal supporting structure that rewards and encourages team development.” As to what the future holds, Mr. Quigley added “The integration and transition of Design Pro Software into Transoft Solutions will continue to deliver a high level of support and ensure a strong working relationship for the future.”

Mr. Daniel Shihundu, P.Eng., MBA, M.ASCE, VP of Civil & Transportation Solutions at Transoft, was among the first to share his excitement about the acquisition. “Design Pro Software’s addition truly enhances Transoft’s position as a leading provider of Transportation Engineering software. What impressed me was that Design Pro Software has developed a suite of Sign and Lane Marking software solutions for Highways and Infrastructure projects ranging from small 2D developments to full BIM highway corridor projects. The ability to create signs and lane markings in 2D and quickly convert these to 3D is going to excite our customers. I am personally thrilled about working with Martin and his team to integrate BIM and visualization features in Transoft’s own products while we leverage our marketing strength to bring global success to Design Pro’s products. Together, I believe we can empower our customers with the most advanced state-of-the-art transportation engineering design tools.
