PatchCAD is Perfect For
- INSTALLERS & INTEGRATORS
Perfect companion for any installation job. Design complex patching systems and impress clients with gorgeous labels within minutes.

You have enough surprises on an installation. Labelling the patch should not be one of them.
- WIREMEN & WIREWOMEN
Do you have folders and folders of Excel templates that you painstakingly made by trail and error? They don’t really work when you send them to the client right…? No more. Simply select the right model from our list of templates and deliver professional looking results to your client quickly and efficiently.And when the client comes back months down the line to ask you to print new labels for them because they added a new device to the outboard patch, you can make the amendment in seconds and impress the hell out of them!
- STUDIO OWNERS
If you’re an owner of studio, chances are that you have modified your patchbay many times and had to make less than elegant manual corrections with stickers or felt pen over the existing labelling. Stop that right now! Print new perfectly fitting labels for your patchbay just like it deserves!If you’re setting up a new facility, then you’re about to find out that all of the patchbays on the market come with nothing more than a little piece of paper that would slide in to the label strip. It’s impractical to manually write on these the amount of information you’ll require. Print elegant labels with PatchCAD!
