Fast and Accurate Quotes

Quoting can be a very time-consuming exercise, yet it is essential to maintain a healthy flow of work. Unfortunately, firing back fast but inaccurate quotes is not the answer. Quote too high and a competitor gets the job, quote too low and you will lose money.

Smart-Shopfront solves this problem by allowing you to design and price a complete shopfront or partition in seconds, leaving no excuse for not knowing the exact glass and hardware costs expected. That the resulting quote also looks so professional, with a full colour 3D picture, is the icing on the cake.

Easy and Correct Design

Shopfront hardware can be complicated with design limits, compatibility rules, and left/right/inswing/outswing specific part numbers. Indeed, designing a shopfront can seem to involve more referencing hardware manuals than actual design.

Smart-Shopfront incorporates your design rules to make hardware selection a breeze. You can easily update the overall style of your design or individual parts and Smart-Shopfront will automatically select compatible hardware to match.

shopfront avoid mistakes 1

Avoid Mistakes

Smart-Shopfront eliminates 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.

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 maybe a customer's door is smashed and they want you to order a replacement installation  how do you know what size the door was without going out and remeasuring?

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

shopfront protect your margin 1

Protect your Margin

Smart-Shopfront constantly updates the expected cost of your glass and hardware, letting you instantly compare prices between suppliers and ensuring that every job is quoted at the margin you require.

Equally importantly, Smart-Shopfront provides cutting and installation instructions to protect that margin, helping jobs run smoothly without mistakes or wasted trips.
