The new Google Maps based job entry for CFS that will change the way you look at fence
MapDraw is a new web based job entry app for the Computer Fencing System Version 16.0. It's the biggest thing to hit CFS since QwikDraw. It unleashes the power of Google within CFS. Joining QwikBid and QwikDraw, MapDraw completes the suite of three job entry vehicles for CFS.
MapDraw accesses Google Maps to let you visit job sites around the corner or around the world from wherever you are working. You enter the address of the job and there it is - ready to be sketched, broken down, quoted and sold. You can toggle through Google Maps, Google Satellite, and Google Street View.
You draw out a project - including single, double, rolling, cantilever or internal track gates, similar to the way QwikDraw works. All dimensions will automatically be calculated by Google and are to scale. You can override the measurements if you want to make an adjustment.
Once you have the sketch, you can send it to a chainlink, wood, vinyl, ornamental, or welded mesh Scratch Builder program for the complete fence breakdown and all of the valuable reports that these programs provide.
You can fine tune your site plan by zooming in and clicking and dragging terminal points. The dimensions will immediately recalculate and display. You can navigate around the map display by holding down the left mouse button and dragging or zooming in or out. Gates are input the same simple way that they are in QwikDraw.
You can capture an image of the site with the job sketch overlayed on it and print it by itself or on a Contract or a Workorder in CFS (See Document Forge for more info).
Looking at the site is a good way to know how hard you want to pursue a job. Having looked at the site beforehand, you will be prepared and informed when you go on site. How many times did you wish you had known something before you had invested the time in chasing a wild goose? You might even pre-figure a proposal or two beforehand.
Your customers will be impressed by the sophistication of your tools and
professionalism of your proposal. MapDraw will make your business run smoother and more profitably.
MapDraw can also accept layouts created by your customers in our new GeoDraw website app
Like QwikDraw, MapDraw will renew as a part of your annual upgrade.

Our first customer, Dick Dube of Aroostook Fence in
Maine told us that "QwikDraw is the best thing you
ever did." That's high praise from a Mainer. I wonder
what Dick will have to say about MapDraw?
Upgrading to CFS Version 16 will renew QwikDraw
