Application Development: Online Quotation System
SpecFlue approached SomCom in 2010 to build an online quotation system.
Combining our clients' expert knowledge with SomCom’s technical ‘know how’, the world’s first automatic flue/chimney design and quotation system was created.
The challenge was to hide the technical expertise necessary for creating each quote behind a straight forward 1,2,3 step approach visible to customers.
By working closely with SpecFlue we were able to capture all of the parameters required to produce an accurate quotation.
SomCom designed the database and on the back of this, built a calculation engine.
Upon approval, we developed the website layout focusing on creating a structure that was functional and easy to use.
As a result of working with SomCom, Specflue were awarded Associate Product of the Year 2010 at the Hearth & Home Show for their new flue estimating software.
This new development prepares quotations in a matter of seconds after customers input a few simple dimensions, and will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
