It just got easier to accurately estimate the materials and time you’ll need to fabricate awnings. The new estimation add-on for Awning Composer does the math for you.
Now available as an upgrade to Awning Composer, users can purchase the estimation add-on, which makes it easier to provide customized quotes and manage time on the job.
Once you download the free Awning Composer upgrade to Version 5.6 and purchase the estimation add-on, you will be able to see the estimation tool box on the right-hand side of your screen. The toolbar will allow you to toggle between five tabs as you build your project and your estimate – frame, fabric, labor, cost and quote.
As you choose a dynamic object and begin manipulating it, the estimation add-on tool will automatically update to show standard fabric and frame sizes, estimated labor and costs, and more. You will then be able to customize each element of the job from fabric and tube sizes to hour labor costs and profits.
The software enables you to create custom quotes that include a rendering of the project, along with your business’s branding and contact information.
With options to tailor labor hours and costs based on the fabricator’s experience level, you will be able to manage project workflow and time more effectively – helping you move on to the next job as quickly and efficiently as possible. Plus, you can customize each element of the job from fabric and frame sizes to profit margins, which will allow you to provide customers with custom and accurate quotes every time. The estimation add-on also allows you to customize and print receipts as well as standard work agreement language for customers to sign.
The estimation add-on is available for a limited time for $399.99.
