This application was developed for a company manufacturing and fitting window dressings.  They needed a quotation system which sales staff produce quotations on-site at a customer’s residence.

The client had a very specific idea of how he wanted the application to look.  He wanted it driven by a Word template which looked like an order form.  The user fills in customer details at the top and then for each window, they enter the size, select the product and the software fills in the price.  This is simple enough from the user’s perspective.

Their existing paper based product catalogue and price list consisted of two  A4 lever arch folders each about 4cms thick.  Each product has different numbers of options and materials with each combination having a different lookup table.  Drapes were different again with a complex spreadsheet to calculate a price depending on material price, width and various other options.
