Wrightsoft Celebrates 20 Years of Success!

Wrightsoft’s commitment to customers has led to industry changing innovations

LEXINGTON, MA, October 6, 2006—For twenty years, Wrightsoft has focused its inventions on helping HVAC contractors save time and produce accurate results so they could run a more profitable and efficient business. From an initial meeting with ACCA, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America, Wrightsoft developed a unique idea of placing the Manual J form on the screen, making it calculate and display the answer whenever an input number changed. “We struck a deal with ACCA that very day,” stated Bill Wright, President of Wrightsoft.

“It took an entire year to develop this initial product, Right-J™, continues Bill Wright, “but it was worth it. The first group of contractors who used Right-J told us it exceeded their expectations and one customer even said, it made doing load calculations as fun as it could possibly be.” Continuously listening to the needs of the consumer is what guides Wrightsoft’s development. “Our inventions along the way, like maximum integration of loads, ducts, takeoffs, and even Right-Draw™ have all come about because they told us what they wanted.”

In these two decades, there has been a revolution in the design process, with Wrightsoft introducing several important innovations and partnerships that make HVAC design and sales a much easier and more accurate process.

Not only does Wrightsoft continue to be the only company to offer a fully automated HVAC design and sales program for both residential and commercial markets, Wrightsoft also offers the ability to customize a “Right-Suite®” based on the specific needs of the user, combining up to 10 residential or 5 commercial modules. Right-Suite is driven by the innovative Hotlink™ Technology, which formulates the program to act as a “live model” where any changes made by the user are instantly recognized throughout each of the connected modules within the Suite.

“After 20 years, our steadfast commitment of automating the design and sales process to assist the HVAC professional work more efficiently, is unchanged.” Chris Edgren, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Wrightsoft further explained, “We were the first software provider to directly link our product to Florida’s residential energy code program, and now we have successfully completed the same thing with REScheck™ and REM/Rate™. Our product’s automation streamlines the process and eliminates the need to enter the same information multiple times in different programs."

Understanding how this can benefit the contractor, Wrightsoft has developed strategic partnerships with several of the top equipment manufacturers like American Standard, Bryant, Carrier, Coleman, Luxaire, Rheem, Roth, Trane, Unico, Uponor, York, and Zurn. “These relationships are extremely important and give us the ability to include in our software access to the manufacturer’s equipment database, marketing data, and pricing, thereby giving the user all the information they need electronically to create thorough system designs complete with professional proposals.” Chris Edgren continued, “by keeping a pulse on the industry and listening to our customers, we have been able to create the programs that make them more successful.”

"We are very pleased and proud to celebrate our twentieth anniversary,” continues Bill Wright, “and believe that our dedication has led the industry toward better system design, through the use of computers in business. We appreciate the support from our customers, and look forward to what the next 20 years will bring.”
