Design Made Easy(TM) furniture space-planning and sales visualization tool
built upon 20-20 Technologies cutting-edge 3D web application, 20-20 Virtual

web-based and rich-media enabled space-planning tool that allows dealers to
configure in 2D and 3D with interactive and photo-realistic renderings like

lets users work in 2D or 3D views, rotate and zoom in or out of rooms and
products, and much more. The photo-realism is quite remarkable, painting a
complete and exact picture for prospective clients," said Jean-François Grou,
President and COO, 20-20 Technologies.
