Crank Software

Crank Software Inc. is an innovator in embedded graphical user interface (GUI) solutions. Crank Software’s Storyboard products and related services enable R&D teams and UI Designers to quickly and collaboratively develop rich animated user interfaces for resource-constrained embedded devices.

What if you could decouple the roles of the UI designer and embedded systems engineer allowing them to focus on their core competencies? What if they could complete their work in parallel? And, what if this better way of approaching product development delivered the envisioned user interface (UI) user experience (UX)?

Today’s engineers need a better way. Crank Software’s Storyboard Suite enables UI Designers and Embedded Developers with the ability to quickly prototype, develop and release rich animated user interfaces for embedded devices.

The Crank Storyboard Suite was architected for engineers by engineers. Storyboard allows UI designers, with no programming experience, to drag-and-drop their UI designs and do this in parallel with, yet independently from, the engineers who are working on the coding. Storyboard simplifies the design process, saves valuable time, and leverages the core skills of each valued member of the team.
