Portal Pro is a multi-faceted solution to handle many aspects of a commercial business. Originally written for the Commercial Door and Hardware industry, Portal Pro can be used by any business to generate estimates, sales orders, invoices, purchase orders, track inventory and generate reports.
For the door and hardware industry you have the ability to create professional door and hardware schedules. And included is a frame detailing program that not only creates a PDF drawing of custom frames but will price out the material and labor to build it.
Portal Pro is available on a monthly subscription. Some programs can require $10,000.00 – $50,000.00 or more depending on the size of your company just to get the software installed. With Portal Pro you can leave that cash in the business where it is needed most and simply pay a monthly subscription for each PC. You can have an unlimited number of users on each PC if you like. This makes it one of the most affordable programs available. It is also one of the easiest programs to start using. No need to spend several weeks or a month just to learn how to use it.
Portal Pro uses SQL Server for the database in lieu of Microsoft Access like some programs which means it can accommodate one to thousands of users at one time. So Portal Pro can grow with your business regardless of size. The database is also located in the cloud using Microsoft SQL Azure services. This allows you to access your data anywhere in the world as long as you have an Internet connection. And it eliminates the need for a database administrator on site and provides constant backups of your data. Portal Pro has been using cloud services for many years. Other programs are just now learning to leverage this feature.
