3M™ Digital Designs Upgrade Keeps Software A Cut Above Traditional Programs

3M today unveiled its new version of 3M™ Digital Designs pattern cutting software, offering an improved interface along with two unique add-on sales options that enhance operational efficiency on both sides of the counter. The upgraded software, which provides a system for precision cutting of paint protection films, expands 3M’s comprehensive film library with options for both automotive window film and graphic patterns.

In addition to the software upgrade, 3M helps improve business capabilities with product simulator AddOnAuto, and helps companies create customized marketing tools with AddLabel. The new programs are available through a subscription-based model and boast an extensive database of hundreds of patterns for current cars and trucks. Businesses can easily and efficiently learn how to use these new services through 3M’s video tutorials, monthly webinars and local seminars.

Digital Designs 3 Software: Expanded capabilities with upgraded interface and new patterns The upgraded 3M™ Digital Designs features a new user-friendly webpage and software package that will roll out starting November 4, 2013 for new and existing subscribers. A full transition to the new platform will take place by January 7, 2014. New features include:

  • Addition of automotive window film and select graphic patterns to paint protection film patterns
  • Design and editing tools to customize and create patterns
  • Pattern monitoring and inventory tracking
  • New “Speed Cut” button that sends cuts to the plotter with no hesitation
  • Drivers pre-loaded for most plotters, allowing quick and easy setup

  • Embedded on installers’ websites and used for tablet review during retail visits
  • Customized with installers’ logo and can include only products each business carries or sells
  • E-commerce-enabled, providing customers with ability to shop and buy online if activated

AddLabel: Improve penetration with customized marketing labels Customization isn’t just for the consumer – with the new AddLabel option, 3M provides professional applicators with a complete library of marketing labels tailored to their specific program needs, making it even easier for them to advertise their offerings with dealership partners:

  • Designed to help businesses create professional automotive addendum price and marketing labels for dealership customers from the comfort of their own shop
