Attractive 3D Quotes

Smart-Balustrade produces an accurate full-colour or outline-rendered drawing of your balustrade as you design it. This can be rotated, resized and adjusted to show off the design exactly how you want.

Needless to say, this is a great selling point on quotes and really helps your customers visualise your proposal.

Avoid Mistakes

Toughened and laminated glass is expensive. Smart-Balustrade reduces wastage by taking care of the glass size and cut-out calculations for you, then producing detailed glass order drawings at the touch of a button.

Not only does this save you money replacing incorrect glass, it also saves all the time and hassle of repeat visits and rescheduled installations. Error-free installs make for happy customers.

save time

Save Time

Time is money, as the saying goes. Smart-Balustrade calculates in seconds what would normally take much longer. It's ease of use allows your less experienced staff to produce quotes, freeing up your most valuable staff to focus on other areas of the business.

The time savings continue after a quote is won where a single click of the mouse can produce either printed or machine readable glass drawings, hardware lists and detailed instructions for your installers to take on-site.

Easy Fabrication and Installation

Smart-Balustrade produces an installation printout complete with a plan view and optimised hardware cutting instructions. Each cut piece includes mitre information and is labelled and referenced back to the correct location on the plan, making installation a snap.

Gain Control

Have you ever had a customer call up and give the go-ahead for a quote you can't even find any more? Or perhaps a customer wants a new balustrade in exactly the same style and finish as the one you did last year - how can you recall all the details without revisiting?

Smart-Balustrade solves both problems by keeping a complete record of all balustrades you have quoted or installed at your fingertips.
