CRL Storefronts OnlineŽ Achieves Industry First With New Breakthrough Components

C.R. Laurence introduces powerful enhancements to the Storefronts OnlineŽ Estimating Software that positions it as the first comprehensive system to enable users to design, quote, and order both Fully Framed and "All Glass" Commercial Storefronts and Entrances

LOS ANGELES, CA - January 23, 2014 - CRL Storefronts OnlineŽ has operated as a valuable web-based tool that assists glazing contractors and installers in the design, estimating, quoting, and ordering process for CRL's "All Glass" Storefront and Door Systems. It was designed and developed by C.R. Laurence's industry experts who have over 80 years of experience in the architectural glass and glazing industry.

The newly improved CRL Storefronts OnlineŽ, which is now available at crlaurence.com/Storefronts-Online, adds new capabilities and features that assist glazing contractors with ordering U.S. Aluminum entrances and storefronts directly from the software. Glazing contractors in need of either aluminum-framed and "all glass" solutions can take advantage of CRL's powerfully enhanced software to significantly expedite the bidding process for future projects.

"We are proud to be the glass and glazing industry's trailblazer in offering a comprehensive online tool for designing both aluminum-framed and 'all glass' entrance solutions," says Lloyd Talbert, President of C.R. Laurence. "Storefronts OnlineŽ has been a trusted industry resource that has been further improved to better serve glazing contractors at every stage of the building process."

Storefronts OnlineŽ seamlessly produces full color 3D elevation renderings and installation plans, as well as provide material take offs, cut sheets, and glass sizes for submittal packages. It will also determine all material quantities and optimize the material yield, then store your project's data including door information, glass sizes, and hardware. This makes ordering, routine maintenance, and replacing parts directly through the software an effortless motion. In the coming months, all U.S. Aluminum systems will be supported by the program.

These breakthrough developments with the Storefronts OnlineŽ system mark another milestone for C.R. Laurence and the glass and glazing industry. It is backed by CRL's world-renowned technical support and is compatible on both Mac and PC systems, as well as tablets and smartphones. CRL regularly offers free webinar training for glazing contractors and installers on how to operate and take full advantage of Storefronts OnlineŽ.
