Process automation with the help of new technological resources (chiefly software) has led to greater efficiency in any Industry. In fact, software has become the most distinctive requirement for businesses that are scaling up.

For the past many years, many traditional industries in India, including the fenestration industry, are gradually making a paradigm shift towards software solutions that are holistically developed to cater to their specific requirements.

“In a scenario where automation is synonymous with efficiency, growth and profit, can the manufacturers afford to ignore the same? They may wonder, is it the right time to seriously evaluate the need for a software solution to help the business grow? Do you still use outdated methods like excel sheets? Do you lose out on potential customers being unable to quote them in time? Does your current tool fall short of your expectations? For a manufacturer, these translate to manual errors in profile calculations, delayed quotation making, over stocking of raw materials and raw material wastage,” explains Dhaval Bhagora, Marketing Manager, Windowmaker Software.

The manufacturers can simply overcome these bottlenecks by adapting an apt software solution. Software lets the user take control of all the elements of ‘making a sale’; from creating a quotation to the point of invoicing. An attention-to-detail approach, with key benefits like cost saving and efficient order processing, ensures all the requirements of the manufacturer, are met.

Since hand drawn quotations are passed fast and accurate computer generated documents have become imperative. Complex calculations required to arrive at an estimate (which was time consuming yet not entirely accurate!) are no more a concern.

“Windowmaker is such a versatile and one of the world’s leading software for window and door industry. It swiftly calculates quotations with precise figures based on the actual profile and material usage. Also, reduce profile stock wastage as it optimises the cutting sequence. Regulate inventory control to avoid any financial discrepancies. Create an array of pre-configured, analytical and managerial reports that provide up-to-date information for analysis and decision making,” says Bhagora.

Different manufacturers have diverse requirements and according to Bhagora, Windowmaker’s unmatched versatility makes it very easy to use, giving manufacturers greater control over their operations with increased productivity and efficiency.

“The fenestration industry, in a bid to improve its performance can no more ignore the need for software solutions that address its issues and cares’ enough to resolve them. Windowmaker strives to fulfil these requirements as it provides successful tools to each segment of the fenestration industry – from a small, single-site to multi-site, multi-national manufacturers,” concludes Bhagora.
