DeckTools software is a sales, design and estimating program that enables deck builders, remodelers and suppliers to design decks in a photo-realistic, 3D environment. Users can customize nearly every detail, from the deck shape and railings to canopies and material choices. By showing homeowners images of their finished deck designs and making it easy to select upgrades instantly, sales are closed much faster. In addition, the program can quickly generate plans, proposals and material lists. Feeney is one of many brand-name deck product manufacturers to be included in the program's partners' library.
"Our success over the past 63 years stems from our experience, service, quality products and strong customer relationships, and we're very excited to be part of DeckTools program and the Simpson Strong-Tie company that shares the same business vision," said Feeney's VP of marketing, Andrew Penny. "Not only does DeckTools offer additional valuable exposure for our products, but it also provides an extremely realistic and user-friendly environment in which contractors and homeowners can easily interact with our products and clearly visualize their finished project. And this close involvement and interaction is a great way to help build strong, enduring relationships with customers."
DeckTools Software 3.3 includes new features, such as an enhanced user guide with drawings, a handy tape measure tool and new straight run layout options in its Railing Designer. It also is now easier to upgrade to stainless-steel connectors and to replace nails with SD structural-connector screws. The software retails for $1895.00.
