DesignIt! is a Canadian company that specializes in systems solutions, high-tech engineering, and consulting.

Our team is diverse and talented: we’re made up of engineers, system designers, project managers, logistics specialists, trainers, experienced business and financial leaders.

Our strategy is simple and proven: we bring creativity and talent to your most complex projects, boosting their performance through our experience in design, construction and operations.

A Unique Approach to Solution Design

At DesignIt!, we do things differently than our competitors. Instead of addressing the needs of a particular project in isolation, we tackle challenges – large and small – holistically. In short, we provide creative solutions that assess and integrate the business needs of your entire enterprise.

Why? Because companies thrive or die based on whether they successfully integrate projects repeatedly over time. This requires an understanding of all aspects of projects and what the requirements are for ongoing operations – change in one area or department affects the whole. And so leaders like you must have real-time, all-inclusive information at their fingertips to mitigate risk, enhance performance, and control costs.

Our approach also ensures all stakeholders are kept in mind. We understand that solutions must consider a diversity of perspectives and sometimes competing interests. We know that people – their skill base, their engagements, and their involvement – are central to success.

DesignIt! History

Life-Cycle Innovators

DesignIt! started back in 1993 as an application provider for Electrical and Instrumentation engineering and Project Design services. Colin Jacobsen, the company’s founder, created an automated engineering design/documentation product called DesignIt! that generates drawings from data, reversing the old paradigm of extracting data from drawings. Simply put, DesignIt! is an app that integrates with CAD drawing software to produce 2D drawings (while maintaining an integrated system for reporting and analyzing data).

The DesignIt! Difference

DesignIt! provides clients a vital alternative to software solutions that are narrowly-focussed and ultimately only address part of the problem. We understand that every company has a unique business challenge that can only be properly addressed by integrating both the client and partner’s needs. This approach enables us to collect, integrate and display stakeholder information in a holistic manner.

There’s no challenge too simple or complex for us. We bring agility, flexibility and innovation to every project we take on. We also have the ability to create solutions that seamlessly integrate and communicate with third-party products.
