The show will include a first look at a new cloud based version of its EvoWeb online ordering systems. Already used by a number of fabricators to allow their installers to order online, it has been revised and updated by Business Micros so that it will work off line for the first time as well. Installers can now generate quotes from within the software which are separate from the online ordering function, and can use the software on their choice of tablet or mobile thanks to a smart new redesign. The Business Micros stand will be set up to provide continuous software demos and there will be regular screenings of a new video produced to show exactly how the EvoNet business management software works – tracking a frame on its journey through a paperless factory. ‘all of its most popular software packages’ Business Micros is sharing stand G30 with its sister company BM Aluminium.
