Hi and welcome to ZapQuote. My name is Philip Perry, most people call me Phil, I am pleased you have decided to give my software a try.
For more than 10-years, I have been working as an electrician in London. I started my own company and hired a few guys to help me out on a number of high-end projects in Knightsbridge, Chelsea and Kensington.
These projects were always complicated leaving no room for error.
When designing and installing complex projects like these there is only one way to do it; keep it simple…make it logical.
I quickly realised that to make life easier, I needed some software to help me mark-up my project plans and create dynamic quotes.
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 realised 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 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 and I hope it enhances your business.
