Window Coverings Software

Opening Menu screen

The opening menu screen of the window coverings software Blindata shows all the main menu options available in the system. Each of these menus has a sub menu, and all menu options are password protected. Users and customers can be set up to only access relevant parts of the system. This is done by setting up company name, username and password for each individual using the system.
Blind Types screen

Administrators can set up different blind types on the system: venetians, rollers, verticals, pleated, velux, romans - even awnings, canopies and shutters can be defined as a blind type. Options can then be set up to ask specific questions about each blind type. Information can also be set up about suppliers of blinds, discounts and particular manufacturing details for all the blind types eg recess to blind size differences, vanes and slat calculations, headrail profiles etc.
Customers screen

This screen allows you to set up new customers, enter delivery and invoice addresses, assign price tables and discounts to customers, enter VAT codes and a range of other relevant information. Each customer can be defined as a retail or a trade customer, and this will determine whether prices selected for blinds are VAT inclusive or not.
Price Tables screen

This screen holds all the price tables relating to blind types. These are held in a width and drop spreadsheet format, familiar to everyone in the blinds industry. Price tables are also by fabric group and price band, with no restriction on numbers of groups or price bands. Global price changes can be made by selecting the relevant tables to be changed and appling a percentage increase or decrease.
Sales lead entry screen

Sales leads can be entered in this screen and assigned to a sales representative or estimator. A diary system allows the user to log a sales lead against a particular date and time for that person. Once completed, these sales leads can be turned automatically, into quotations or orders.
Order Entry screen

This is where orders are actually entered. Information is entered about the customer and then the specific blind details are entered. Different types of blinds can be held against the same order and there is no restriction to the number of blinds that can be entered. For retail sales payments can also be held against orders.
Production label report

The system can generate production labels and works orders. These can be amended to fit various label formats and works orders. They can also be set for recess or blind size measurements and also for metric or imperial. They can also include bar codes if required.
Fitters sheet report

The fitters sheet gives a list of all calls that have to be made on a particular day, and includes addresses, fitting instructions, blind details and payment necessary by the customer.
Invoice print

Once blinds have been manufactured and delivered or fitted, invoices can be printed out singly or in batches. There are different formats for trade, retail and contract customers. The layouts can be amended to suit specific requirements. This may include company logos or specific terms of sale to appear on the bottom of an invoice. Invoices can be reprinted if necessary, an even after they have been archived, can still be printed.
Sales analysis by blind type report

The sales analysis system of the window coverings software Blindata produces many different types of sales analysis, including by blind type, customer, area, rep, order source and customer class. Figures can be produced for a period between two dates and also for year to date. Comparisons can be made between any two sales quarters - by blind type and by customer or a combination of both.
