As reported briefly last Wednesday (CI No 1,064) computer peripherals distributor Sintrom Electronics Plc has moved into the computer aided design market via a software distribution agreement with Robocom Ltd. Reading-based Sintrom, whose activities include the manufacture of data storage equipment and the rental of computer and electronic test equipment, will supply dealers and value added resellers with turnkey systems based on IBM and the French SMT Goupil 80286 and 80386-based microcomputers. The systems will run London computer aided design specialist Robocom’s RoboCAD, RoboSolid, and RoboDraft design packages, which are aimed at engineers or architects running small practices. Sintrom says it will also supply plotters, digitisers, colour and laser printers, as well as graphics add-on boards from Mitsubishi, QMS and Houston Instrument. Gordon Towell, managing director of Sintrom, explained that the agreement was the first of a number of new franchise agreements the company was planning in the microcomputer graphics marketplace. Prices for the systems range from UKP7,000 at the low-end, to a top price of about UKP14,000, and Sintrom’s support division will supply after sales support, including installation and training.
