The DoorBoss automates your entire Business Cycle 

ROI, productivity and profits

The DoorBoss has been helping our clients realize increased ROI, boost productivity and increase bottom line profits for over ten years. The system is designed by an expert in the industry who has built several successful distributorships over the past twenty years. That is further tempered by continued input from our clients - resulting in a system that delivers more than just promises.


Our ROI commitment to you

Your company's sales, management and administrative staff are a very precious resource, consuming a large portion of your operating capital. Improving the efficiency of this resource is what our system is designed to do. Consider the impact of a 50% increase in productivity, on your business.

Run the DoorBoss yourself or let us be your IT department

Lets face it, the office PC is the bane of the business world. Software installation, patches, revisions and hardware upgrades are only part of the problem. Then the realities of hardware failure (like a hard drive crash), fire, theft and a myriad of other disasters. Finally, your business survival depends on "somebody" taking daily backups of all relevant data and keeping a copy off-site.

We can provide two solutions to these headaches

If you install the DoorBoss on your own computer it will automatically backup your data on a daily basis. You can even choose to have a copy automatically saved in our datacenter. Upgrades and patches are managed automatically with the system downloading and installing at night, while you sleep.

We can also host your system in our datacenters (Santa Barbara CA and Toronto ON). This represents the ultimate solution as  you simply "just use" the system. We take care of everything from installation to backups to system upgrades to hardware. How reliable is our hosting? In the past ten years the system has only been unavailable for a single 15 minute period. Can you say that about any office desktop or laptop? You see why this represents the ultimate in reliability, access and security. 

Training and support to ensure you succeed

The success of any automation project hinges on actually using it. Training and support are the means to ensuring that a system is not only used but used effectively. We provide live training either via interactive computer "webinar" sessions or by coming on-site. Once trained, the system has a detailed User Guide as well as training video's covering all aspects of proper use.

Hand in hand with training is a support model like no other software company. First off, you can contact support directly from within the system with a single mouse click. The system will gather all relevant details and send them to our support staff. Typically, this information is sufficient for us to correct the problem without you having to call us. That's right - say goodbye to spending hours on a support line talking to someone on the other side of the planet.And to top this off we have an industry first. If the system itself detects any problems or failure it automatically gathers relevant information, sends it to our support staff and pages them. Most of the time we call our clients with a solution before they are aware of the problem!

Automated shop drawings

The over 100 most common door, frame and screen elevations in our system library represent the vast majority of all shop drawing needs. The DoorBoss applies this information to the appropriate elevation model in our system CAD data library. As you detail a quote you normally enter dimensional information and elevation type for each opening. Use our supplied screen capture software to grab an image and upload.


The 19 minute challenge - can your door and hardware software do this

It includes takeoff, detailing, pricing, quotation, shop drawings, hardware list, product issue, shipping bill and invoices. We would like to present a sample job that only took 19 MINUTES to process from takeoff to invoice. WHAT IS YOUR TIME WORTH.
