KANZI User Interface Design Software

Kanzi enables the rapid design and development of user interfaces (UIs) for the automotive industry and other embedded applications. Kanzi UI design software provides designers with visual tools for creating high-fidelity branded UIs. With its agile workflow and modular architecture Kanzi accelerates UI design by allowing designers and engineers to work independently and in parallel without disruptions.

Experience UI design like never before

Kanzi is an efficient and agile one-stop solution for car manufacturers, Tier 1 companies and design studios that want to create UIs. We believe that designers and engineers deserve the easiest and best UI design software to be able to create functional and beautiful UIs. Learn more about how Kanzi makes the work of designers more creative while enabling engineers to easily integrate the UI with data and application logic.
