The many faces of business software...

Return on investment

The DoorBoss

When investing in automation, do you not expect a positive ROI? We have a proven track-record of significant increase of sales and administrative productivity that translates into real profits.

 

Other systems

Our research shows that some software solutions for our industry offer few gains in productivity. Imagine going through the cost and effort of automation only to find that at the end of the day you are doing nothing more efficiently. No payback!

 

Automate the whole business cycle

The DoorBoss

From the take-off to the invoice, The DoorBoss delivers increased productivity for the whole business cycle. Never again enter the same information over and over as you skip between multiple computer systems.

 

Other systems

Some systems will abandon an order after producing shop drawings or hardware lists. Others will have you buy additional modules just to complete the business process. In our view there are customer service and productivity gains to be had throughout the sales and administrative process.

 

Managing product by the openings

The DoorBoss

Managing product by the opening (ie: Hollow metal, Hardware or Wood doors) delivers an easy, functional perspective to your projects.

 

Other systems

Most systems isolate product by category. Do customers ask for the status of their doors and then their hardware or would they inquire about the status at the same time? Consider the tremendous benefits, throughout the sales process, of managing product by the opening and not by the product category.

 

True cost

The DoorBoss

With The DoorBoss there are no hidden costs. just your one time purchase price, a 15% annual maint. fee and an optional training and set up fee.

  • No other hidden costs
  • No specialized hardware required
  • No fee for additional users & workstations (everyone that needs access gets it)
  • No upgrade worries or expense - we do it all
 

Other systems

Be sure to find the true cost when shopping for software. Get the "real picture" by asking about:

  • annual maintenance fee (up to 35%)
  • mandatory training & setup fees
  • specialized hardware (central server, new workstations)
  • cost of adding additional users & workstations (sharing a computer is like having all your staff share a pen)
  • cost, frequenct and hassle of upgrades
  • manufacturer price list subscriptions
 

Easy to use

The DoorBoss

The DoorBoss is designed on modern architecture with the latest in professional usability design. Computer illiterate, anti-automation advocates have mastered The DoorBoss with ease. To benefit from a system you must first be able to use it.

 

Other systems

Consider the business impact of implementing a system with out-dated, cumbersome usability design. The staff turmoil and the loss in productivity are but a few of the possible repercussions.

 

Security

The DoorBoss

With The DoorBoss security and disaster recovery is far superior, as compared to other systems. The system automatically backs up your data to our professionally-managed datacenter. Your business could burn to the ground, be flooded under six feet of water or thieves could steal your computers and disaster recovery will be as simple as getting us to install your backed up data on another computer. If you have us host your system them it's even easier - just log in from any computer with an Internet connection.

 

Other systems

Research indicates that there is a false sense of security surrounding most companies' computer data. Backups, when taken, are rarely sufficient for full business recovery. To be effective they must be set up, run AND tested with diligence and consistency. When automating a business, disaster recovery should be a major consideration that is far more complex than "Yeah, we do back-ups".

 

Upgrades

The DoorBoss

With The DoorBoss you are always working with the most current version of the system - without any interruption to your business. No patches, no IT specialists. We are your IT department.

 

Other systems

If you have ever been through an upgrade to your core business software, you already know of the potential for business interruption. Be sure to book your IT Dept for some overtime.

 

Document delivery

The DoorBoss

Most documents, such as shop drawings, hardware lists (with e-attached catalog cuts), quotations, change orders etc. can be faxed, emailed and printed directly from your computer (hosted version).

 

Other systems

Imagine the business impact of taking all the time spent copying drawings and lists, attaching catalog cuts and faxing documents - and spending that same time on revenue generating activity.
