Kyoob’s Transition to BricsCAD – A User’s Perspective


Kyoob is known for its innovative approach to building services engineering and specializes in delivering a range of services tailored to new builds and refurbishments. Operating in a competitive market, they stand out by implementing novel engineering solutions and alternative procurement methods alongside traditional project management services.

This case study explores  Kyoob’s transition to BricsCAD, highlighting the reasons for the switch, the implementation process, and the impacts on their operations.


In the evolving landscape of CAD software, businesses continually seek efficient, cost-effective solutions that do not compromise on functionality and user experience.

Kyoob grew increasingly frustrated with the high subscription costs and the elimination of perpetual licensing options from their legacy CAD software. This dissatisfaction led them to seek an alternative that would offer both financial flexibility and a comparable feature set. BricsCAD emerged as the chosen solution due to its competitive pricing structure and familar operational environment.


Initially, the primary challenge was the transition itself, which the company managed in a staged approach to minimize disruptions. Any minor technical hiccups were quickly resolved with support from the KTF Software and Bricsys development teams. Overall, these challenges did not significantly impact the business or workflow, thanks to prompt and effective solutions.

Director, Philip Oliver told me that “Implementing BricsCAD was seamless. The familiarity of BricsCAD’s user interfaces and functionalities meant that the learning curve was minimal, allowing for a smooth transition”.


Switching to BricsCAD has notably given the company control over its licensing arrangements, a significant shift from the forced subscription model previously imposed by their former CAD supplier The financial benefits have been clear, with Philip adding that “Over three years, BricsCAD has saved us £5,000!”. Although no BricsCAD add-ons or third-party applications have been utilized thus far, the company has found the core offerings of BricsCAD to sufficiently meet their needs.


Kyoob has been highly satisfied with the support and resources provided by KTF Software and the Bricsys support team. The quick response times and effective communication have been particularly impressive, with the company’s engineers and technicians feeling as though they are speaking the same language”. This synergy has fostered a positive relationship and enhanced the overall user experience.


Based on their positive experiences, Kyoob enthusiastically recommends BricsCAD to other businesses and professionals within the industry, praising it as a “great CAD alternative with a very familiar interface”. Looking ahead, the company plans to further integrate BricsCAD into their operations, specifically targeting BIM integration when it aligns with their business goals.


This case study demonstrates that transitioning to BricsCAD can be a strategic move for companies looking to reduce costs and retain control over their software licensing, all while maintaining a high level of functionality and user satisfaction. The company’s journey reflects a successful adaptation to BricsCAD, underscored by strong support and significant cost savings, positioning them well for future technological integrations.

Like Kyoob, you can take advantage of a powerful CAD tool with an easy learning curve that can help you create detailed and accurate plans that are compatible with your customers.
