Stitch, Drafting, and Delivery

Stitch Software Brings it All Together

Stitch Software was designed with professional photographers in mind. It provides a quick and easy way to process 360° images produced by the iGUIDE PLANIX Camera System. Photographers can have as much control as they like – the process can either be left to our professional automatic settings or they can edit and adjust the images as they see fit. This data is then sent in to the iGUIDE Drafting Team for processing.

Hands-On Drafting

We’re hands-on. The iGUIDE Drafting Team interpret the data that has been captured by the iGUIDE PLANIX Camera System to discern measurements, draft floor plans, and create the components of the iGUIDE. iGUIDE Drafters work Monday – Saturday to draft and deliver iGUIDEs with a next day turnaround that exceeds industry standards.

Delivery You Can Count On!

The final iGUIDE is then delivered to you – the iGUIDE Operator, as well as anyone else you designate, such as your client. The iGUIDE can be shared by your clients between their team members or on listing sites, social media, and websites. It can also be shared offline or as printed material.
