Eltherington’s changed to Windowmaker software in 1994. The main reason for its selection was its ability to keep pace with changing demands and industry developments. It has not let us down and has always been capable of being developed to meet our needs. Today we use Windowmaker for everything from the quotation stage, through production and delivery planning, driving automated machinery and despatching of goods via Bar Code scanning. Sophisticated reporting that utilises the SQL data base ensures that every aspect of our business is monitored and measured. This includes the value of work-in-progress, sales forecasting, accurate material costing and actual versus target production information. Indeed, It provides us with all the real time financial and management information that these days is a must have.

Guy Stubbs, Group Operations Director, Eltherington Industries Ltd, UK

Having used Windowmaker for 28 years it is quite simply the most user-friendly, adaptable and comprehensive pieces of software for the window and door industry that I have ever seen. Moreover the latest version, Windowmaker 2012, is the best version yet, and enables us to estimate/price everything we produce, including curtain walling, with links to our machinery, our glass supplier and to our stock control system.

Donna Marsh, Versalite Windows

The Support Team went out of their way to explain to me why the grid placements weren't lining up properly. They even went so far as to create an example (from scratch) that I could look at. Very informative. They also managed to fix a minor printer issue we've been dealing with! Thanks so much!
