Meyersdale, PA (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Estate Millwork, a premier manufacturer of custom doors and wooden exterior shutters today released a new customer portal that extends the online design features of the Estate Millwork website into the shutter and door manufacturing process.
"We continue to innovate to find ways to save millwork customers time and money without compromising on the quality of our custom exterior shutters and interior doors," stated Andy Kolenda, Estate Millwork Commercial Sales Director. "Our new portal allows customers to design, price, draw, approve and produce beautiful millwork, directly from our website. The concept is almost like a 'millwork printer' -- customers design their shutters on line, push a button, and we do the rest"
Orders that are placed on the Estate Millwork website are instantly available for electronic approval of shop drawings and real time order status information 24X7. Customers can review renderings, shop drawings, pricing, order status, production status and shipping information from one handy link that is emailed at the beginning of the quotation process.
Behind the scenes, the orders for exterior shutters made in a variety of cedars and mahogany wood are electronically transmitted to the Estate Millwork factory, where robotic and computer controlled milling equipment precisely create the components necessary for the design. Once the components have been machined, they are hand assembled using traditional methods and then expertly finished and packed for shipment to customers.
Using the new customer portal, home owners, architects and builders can monitor their order as it moves through each stage of production, while being assured that the shipment will arrive and will meet the electronically approved specifications.
"We have reduced the amount of time to design, draft, estimate and order shutters for an entire home from days to minutes, while at the same time allowing customers even more integrated access to our capabilities", noted Mr. Kolenda. "Also, as we increase the automation of both clerical and manufacturing functions, we improve lead times and lower costs for our customers -- the portal actually gives better service than our staff can for many situations because it is available around the clock".
