doors&windows DOOR DESIGN PORTAL Business Micros is cementing its position as the leading provider of online ordering portals for both composite and panel door producers with a new installation for WB Group in County Durham, one of the leading fabricators of PVC-U windows and doors in the north of England and Scotland. Business Micros has designed and installed separate portals for WB’s composite and panel door production enabling its trade customers to place door orders online for the first time. The portals allow customers to select from a range of design, configuration, dimension, colour and hardware options to create a virtual door of their choice. Once they have completed the step by step design stage, they can generate a price for their door and make any changes which are necessary before clicking to order online. An order acknowledgement is automatically generated and sent to the customer via email. WB Group has been a Business Micros customer for more than 20 years and, during that time, the partnership between the two has strengthened significantly. WB Group now uses Business Micros’ Evolution software for manufacturing and order processing, EvoNet for business management and reporting and EvoWeb for online ordering. Business Micros was the obvious choice then for WB when it wanted to develop its new portals and the process was fast and efficient. WB Group Managing Director Tony Craggs said: “Business Micros proved once again why they are so important to our business. They immediately understood our brief, they responded quickly with the technical and design work we required and, because they are so experienced in developing and installing these portals, they anticipated and resolved problems before they became an issue.” WB officially launched the portals to customers last month and has already previewed the panel portal and the response from customers has been really positive. Tony Craggs adds: “Customers have told us that they love the fact that they get an instant order acknowledgement in their inbox and they love the speed and ease of use of the system.” Once both portals are fully live, Business Micros will integrate the online door ordering into WB Group’s existing Evolution order processing so that the systems communicate effectively and there will be no requirement for double inputting saving lots of work and time.
