Looking for Software? Look No FurtherSeptember 21st, 2015 by Tara Taffera
Companies walking a trade show floor are often shopping for software, and there were several companies at last week’s GlassBuild America event armed with the latest offerings to meet this demand.
FeneTech Inc. showcased its newest software generation, FeneVision MAX, the latest version of the FeneVision ERP software. But president Ron Crowl said it’s about much more than software — it’s the FeneVision experience. This includes everything from training at FeneVision University to its yearly events for both window and glass professionals where customers can come together and share ideas.
At the Friedman booth, the company is making online ordering easy with its A+W iQuote. The product offers user-friendly, online ordering that accurately reflects the inventory, pricing and production schedules in A+W’s ERP systems for windows and glass products.
“It has never been easier for your sales team, distributors or other channel partners to generate quotes, place orders and track production status in real time,” said Peter Dixen, president of A+W software. “With iQuote, we’ve put the industry’s best configurator on the web and mobile devices, with an intuitive interface that makes it easy to enter even complex orders right into your A+W ERP.”
Edgenet was at GBA to talk about its offerings, including Edgenet DSP. The company is looking for dealers to join the dealer support pilot program aimed to launch in 2016. “Give us time and tell our people what you need. We want to know what problems you have and create tailored solutions to help improve your sales and workflow,” the company said.
At WTS, Brant Olson was excited to tell us that the company rolled out its new paperless module for MasterPoint. “People are going crazy for it,” he said.
RenoWorks showcased its product visualization software. Scott Young, senior vice president, shared an interesting fact, which speaks to the power of visualization software. “Companies using this type of software are seeing a 32-percent conversion rate,” he said.
