Save Time

Smart-Glass has been tested drawing glass against CAD and paper and is significantly faster than both. Furthermore, it exports directly to your production system or can be integrated with Smart-Toolbox ERP, eliminating the traditional order entry step.

Time-saving features include user customizable cutout and panel libraries, drag-and-drop cutouts, one-click edgework and easy cloning of glass panels. Drawings are interactive, meaning the user can click on dimensions to change them.

Avoid Mistakes

Mistakes, from misinterpreting drawings or order entry errors, are common in the glass industry. For the fabricator they are painful, stressing your system and staff as you try to deliver replacement glass as quickly as possible. For an installer it can be even worse, mistakes are often only discovered once on site, and their customer will be irate about the delay.

Smart-Glass helps eliminate all these errors. Computerized drawings are easy to interpret and machine friendly output such as DXF allows jobs to go straight to cutting tables and CNC machines. Smart-Glass also exports to production systems, allowing the end customer's carefully drawn glass to skip the time-consuming and error-prone order entry process.

accurate costing

Accurate Costing

Smart-Glass can be loaded with all your supplier costs. It understands shape surcharges and as you design each panel it tracks exactly how many notches, holes and lineal meters of edge work are required. This allows you to see instantly how much the glass in your job is going to cost so that you can quote with the confidence that your margin is protected. You can even clone jobs to experiment and price different glass make-ups.

For many glass processors, responding to quote requests from installers is a time-consuming task which too often slips down the priority list. With Smart-Glass, installers can obtain their own quotes, saving time and providing much better service.

record keeping

Record Keeping

Smart-Glass keeps a copy of all your quotes and orders. When a customer you quoted months ago contacts you to proceed with the job you can see exactly what it comprises. Furthermore, you can easily clone and update the job with accurate site measurements, thereby keeping a record of both what you quoted and what you need to order.

Whether a customer breaks a shower door years on, or your installer shells a panel 20 minutes after delivery, you have the exact details at your fingertips to reorder the glass.
