Is designing and detailing taking up an inordinate amount of time in your sales process?
Having a web-based quoting system has many benefits, including access by many users from many locations, with minimal computing requirements and reduced application support and maintenance.
The next logical step to improving an online quoting system is to add a graphical component to increase efficiency, improve the accuracy of quoting and streamlining the detailing and manufacturing process.
The use of a graphical interface may not be suitable for everyone, so ask yourself: do you have a repeatable process within defined parameters but it is laborious and resource intensive to do by hand? If so, you may well benefit from a graphical design front end.
Typical industry examples are Carports, Pergolas, Sheds and other portal structures, right up to transportable and modular buildings.
The benefit of the investment, aside from systemising the design and quotation process include:
- Automated design and construction detail at the time of quoting
- Detailed and accurate costings
- Clear and relevant documentation (including drawings)
- Providing a clear vision of the end result to customers
- Integration with manufacturing equipment (e.g. cutting file output)
- Accuracy in quoting and material ordering
It is much easier to close the sale if clients are excited by what you can do for them, and having a graphical tool to display the end result is one way to do this.
It is even possible to provide web tools to automate basic quotes for those people interested enough to visit your web site, providing a starting point for following up a lead.
Typically Alltraders will integrate any graphical solution on top of the MySys business management platform, to provide a structure and process to the quoting and design. The addition of a graphical quoting tool to a powerful Business Management System ensures accuracy in quoting and material ordering, management of the project and client interactions, streamlined ordering and production work orders, and management tools for delivery and installation.
On top of all these benefits, you get to work with a local team with extensive knowledge in the Building, Construction and Home Improvement industries across Australia.
