Most innovative industry-specific software
Five years ago, GTS Services LLC, Portland, Ore., made a strategic decision to invest in its products and services to meet the needs of the contract glazing market; the end result is the GTS GlasPacLX Glazier Edition with Microsoft Dynamics GP. The software provides contract glaziers with the traditional construction management capabilities required to manage the business, merged with industry-specific glass nuances, according to company officials. With one software suite, companies can manage and control all aspects of the job, including estimating, project management, financial accounting and business analysis. Every aspect of the software has been tailormade for the glass specialty contractor.
“Contract glaziers are dealing with very slow market conditions,” says GTS President Mike Jones. “Our clients utilize GlasPacLX to improve and maximize profits during this downturn. The software streamlines and automates workflow to improve worker productivity and reduce costs. The job management and costing modules give glass companies the visibility and control over all aspects of their projects to identify the most and least profitable areas of each project. Glass companies can then focus on the more profitable elements and drive improvements in the less profitable areas.”
For diversified glass companies, all other lines of business— auto, flat, service work, mobile, retail, wholesale — are integrated in one system. Enterprise-wide data and information, such as actual versus estimate, invoiced versus cost, and change orders, are available in real-time.
