About Us

Welcome to ZapQuote. ZapQuote is a result of a partnership between 2 lifelong friends James and Phil. Looking to solve an issue facing many small electrical, fire, and security companies with trades markup software.

“How do I professionally mark up a plan without needing to go to university or fork out a small fortune to do so.”

After more than 2 years of hard work builds and rebuilds, head-scratching and tweaks, the result is a very easy-to-use web-based software.

When designing and installing complex projects there is only one way to do it; keep it simple…make it logical.

And that’s where ZapQuote comes in…

ZapQuote has been developed to make quoting for jobs as easy as possible. ZapQuote gives you the chance to upload floor plans in Pdf format and then create your mark-up directly onto the plans. The clever bit is, when you create the markup from your custom icons, the software will create your itemised quote for the client on the fly. It will create the quote in a presentable format that you can simply email to the client! Simple.

For a number of years, I did an occasional search for an acceptable solution but found nothing that worked as I wanted. Everything was either too complicated or just did not work very well.

The business was growing, so the need for software was becoming increasingly imperative. Eventually, I knew that the only solution was to try and create my own.

To kick off I teamed up with my life-long friend James Syme. He had spent 20-years running a small team of developers and creating and designing websites & Apps. He’d completed some inspiring projects.

We agreed that we did not want something that resembled Windows 95! Neither did we want complicated sub-menus, right clicks, double clicks, and option command function clicks. We simply wanted software that was intuitive, easy to use, and did not cost a fortune.

So, we set about putting our coders and designers to work in order to create a solution that would be simple to use but effective. I have to confess creating something simple to use, requires a huge amount of thought, ingenuity, trial, error, and difficult coding. But eventually, after several years, we got there.

This version is pretty awesome, but we have much more in the pipeline that will make ZapQuote even more powerful as time goes by – without it escalating in price.

As far as we are concerned the more users we have, the more feedback we will get.

I love new ideas and love to listen so if you have something you would like to see added or improved, let us know, we are great listeners.

Please go ahead and enjoy ZapQuote, we know it will  it enhances your business.


Just amazing to markup in the office, then walk round site with the client and make all changes onsite on my iPad.
