New Glass Calculator in Kosmas for Glazier Quotes
Over the years, DocuWrx has partnered with a number of glaziers to help improve business processes for the industry. In that light, DocuWrx developers updated Kosmas to include a glass calculator that is formulated to create accurate line items specific to flat glass calculations when creating orders and allows users to build a database that can store glass products and pricing; users can even upload products and prices from select vendors for their convenience.
When the user inputs the lengths and widths in inches, the application calculates the square footage of the glass and compares it to the minimum required square footage needed for the job. Then, it calculates the cost of the individual piece of glass and the extended cost for multiple of the same size piece of glass for that specific order. In addition to the dimensions of the glass, glaziers often have additional work to include on their orders, such as edging or clipped corners / hole cuts. Fixtures may also be needed for each piece of glass. By using the Kosmas Glass Calculator, glaziers can quickly add additional work and fixtures to each piece of glass.
Users can then build out their itemized job order and easily import the estimate back into Kosmas with a pre-set markup that can be generated into a quote, order, or PO. Markups can be adjusted per item if necessary. The Glass Calculator can also be tailored to the users request to accommodate more unique workflows or estimation methods.
Clients like Tab Glass & Windows Corp. are overjoyed by the time the Kosmas Glass Calculator is saving them and how easy it is to use. Tab Glass Vice President, Kristin Thomas explains how the tool makes her life easier, “The Glass Calculator helps me remember to include pricing on all the tiny items that can add up on glass orders, such as pattern charges, cut-outs, and notch pricing. Pricing is already stored, so I don’t need to dig through supplier pricing each time. When there are price changes, annually or quarterly, I just update the system to reflect the highest in the market so I know I’m covered.” Not only does the tool save them valuable time, it also allows for more accurate calculations that decrease errors, therefore decreasing financial waste from mistakes.
