Windowmaker ERP

Windowmaker ERP is ultimate, fully integrated business system. Providing seamless integration between Windowmaker and Microsoft Dynamics products, Windowmaker ERP offers best of breed functionality to window and door manufacturers.

Windowmaker ERP is currently able to be integrated with Microsoft Dynamics AX and NAV – for other systems, please Contact Us.

  • Windowmaker ERP includes an easy to use interface, with simple switching between the Windowmaker and Dynamics NAV functions.
  • Launch Windowmaker from within Microsoft Dynamics to create quotations and orders, with access to shared customer and product data.
  • With a fully integrated solution, you can eliminate multiple data sets – and introduce a single source for all key data that can be accessed and reported on.
  • This leads to single data entry - reduce wasted data processing, and end subsequent manual errors, through a single input that can then be processed through the system automatically.

Windowmaker ERP includes fully integrated suite of software options built upon the Product Configurator module. Available as a bolt-on solution for existing Microsoft Dynamics implementations, or a brand new solution to replace an existing ERP system, Windowmaker ERP provides a seamless link across all business functions.

This solution is designed to allow businesses to run a single software system throughout the organisation, thereby realising significant operational efficiencies and cost savings.

The functionality of the Product Configurator, along with the supporting modules, will be integrated with all activities associated with the order fulfilment process; from Dealer sales quotes to sales orders, production scheduling to optimisation, tracking to delivery.

Windowmaker ERP is based on the functionality available in Windowmaker SQL, with the addition of Microsoft Dynamics integration.

How it Works?

  • Windowmaker ERP is built on Microsoft SQL Server the world’s favourite database system. It is compatible with all three major versions – Workgroup, Standard and Enterprise.
  • Microsoft SQL Server offers excellent performance and reliability, in a familiar database structure. Compared with the Express, the full versions of SQL Server are ideal for demanding, multi-user environments.
  • In addition, the supporting tools available (such as Reporting Services) allow extensive analysis, or easy integration with third party software – from sales systems to stock control to accounts.
  • Microsoft SQL Server is ideal for multi-site locations – this option for Windowmaker ERP allows multiple locations to synchronise data automatically, providing instant access to key information wherever you are. With SQL Triggers, automation of many tasks provides unlimited potential for growing and integrating Windowmaker as needed.
  • With Windowmaker OnDemand, the potential is unlimited. Delivering the ultimate in flexibility, Windowmaker OnDemand enables you to implement and rollout Windowmaker to any local or internet-enabled device – with full functionality, and no compromise.
