Seamless sales and ordering

Emplas has rolled out its integration for the front-end-sales tool WindowCAD, which allows installers to pitch, quote, survey and place orders.

Developed by Emplas’s inhouse development team, a new application programming interface (API) allows EVA (Emplas Virtual Assistant) and WindowDesigner to pull in information direct from WindowCAD as a basis for production.

This means that accurate data inputted right at the start of the sales process can be extracted and used to place orders.

Jody Vincent, sales director at Emplas, said: “You can measure up, sit down in person, or remotely with the homeowner, and show them how different window options will look on their property, and once the sale is agreed, either choose to double check measurements with a surveyor, or simply place an order, without having to reinput data.

“It establishes a very simple workflow, which having trialled it in T&K our own retail business over a three-month period, has the potential to save our customers a massive amount of time.”
