Best ever EstimatorXpress and over 7000 new PVC-U products


Introducing the best ever interface and 1000s of PVC-U doors and windows. We’ve just launched an exciting new 2015 version of EstimatorXpress with maximum user-friendliness and a great new addition.

The big news is that HBXL has teamed up with Crystal Direct, the leading UK supplier of a huge range of competitively priced, made-to-measure PVC-U products. Estimating software, EstimatorXpress 2015 can now incorporate Crystal Direct prices into the quotes it produces – and CAD software, PlansXpress includes new drawing tools for PVC-U products. All you need is the Bonus Pack for the new EstimatorXpress calculators – and the latest PlansXpress software for the drawing tools.

We’ve improved the selection process and added an expanded library of over 7000 Crystal Direct PVC-U windows and doors.  All of the door and window calculators now have the option to use a Crystal Direct former, instead of a timber dummy frame and cavity closer.

We’ve also expanded the library for Stone Cills, Stone Heads and Brick Arches with more products and pickers to choose from to further improve the estimation process. As well as two BRAND NEW ‘Flat Roof with Rooflights’ calculators.

So, what attracted us to Crystal Direct?

Crystal Direct PVC-U is simple to install – and you don’t need to be FENSA registered to do it yourself (so long as you obtain Building Regulations approval)! That means you can add your own mark-ups and gain more job control – no more waiting around for sub-contractors to finish PVC-U installations!

All Crystal Direct products can be ordered online, 24/7 and there’s no minimum order quantity. They turn around their quotes in around 24 to 48 hours and offer nationwide, GPS tracked delivery within five days of ordering. Plus, all their PVC-U windows are CE marked, so they conform to EU safety, health and environmental requirements!


Offer your customers something extra

With fifteen different colours and wood-grain finishes to choose from and a selection of Crystal Direct brochures, samples and marketing support at your fingertips, it’s a great chance to impress prospective customers. It could even help to boost your win-rate!

So this isn’t just a software update, it could be one less sub-contractor too!
