Hörmann garage and entrance doors are distributed exclusively in Northern Ireland by Haldane Fisher and key staff at the builders’ merchants recently completed training on the IHAS system. This new service is set to be rolled out across all the company’s branches in the coming months.
All of Hörmann’s approved dealers can access the manufacturer’s specially designed online configurator system for free through the Dealer Forum. The IHAS system simplifies the quotation process by allowing dealers to specify any door and also build up an accurate quote quickly for their customers.
Dealers can enter the specific dimensions and requirements of the Hörmann door, as well as the chosen paint, finish and any additional accessories. The system then generates a quote, along with a scaled drawing and all the necessary technical details required for correct installation. A further advantage of the IHAS system is that dealers can add their own discounts to the quote provided and incorporate this into the final document.
By using the IHAS system, the usual middleman is removed which significantly speeds up the process. The quote generated is accurate and presented in a professional format and is easy to edit, if required.
Charlie Mount, Technical Sales Manager at Haldane Fisher, said, “I have been using IHAS for a few months now and it really makes a difference in speeding up the process of providing a complete quotation.
“In the past we had a huge price book that we had to go through to find the right door and then add on the finishes. It was a time consuming process. With IHAS it is a simple and straightforward process which is fast and efficient. It is perfect for our retail customers but also when we are working with architects and specifiers.
“Not only does it present the full price, but also the complete technical specification and drawings – everything a customer or installer would require.”
Roy Shellam, Area Sales Manager, Hörmann, carried out the training on IHAS with Haldane Fisher staff recently.
He said, “IHAS is an intuitive system with a simple user interface that guides the user through the system. It speeds up the entire quotation process, meaning staff and customers benefit. The system has been designed to only provide solutions that we can manufacture so you are always assured that we can deliver what you have been quoted. It is all very simple and straightforward and will enhance the service provided by Haldane Fisher.”
