With the latest version of the PV calculation tool QuickCalc 3.0, EWS customers can quickly and reliably find affordable, technically reasonable and available solutions when designing and calculating their solar power projects. A video tutorial shows how this new updated version with sensational features closes the gaps between the free EWS online tools and supports solar professionals in their daily work.

Most of our customers have known and used QuickCalc for many years. It is embedded in the pro version of our planning and communication tool QuickPlan and allows for complete solar power systems (even complicated ones) to be designed and calculated in just a few minutes. In addition to providing direct access to the module field layout via Google Maps, QuickCalc 3.0 now helps to select a suitable mounting system and recommends energy storage systems while taking into account the individual power consumption and production. QuickPlan uses this information to create a yield forecast in no time and illustrates the system’s profitability in a convincing documentation for the customer.

As a wholesaler, EWS thus offers its customers unprecedented planning reliability with up to six months in advance – and, thus, the greatest possible reliability in this part of the supply chain. Of course, the new EWS system calculator can also be used to enter the shipping details, e.g., delivery on the desired date directly to the construction site or the individual calculation of freight costs.

Pre-qualification and concretisation of leads

Hundreds of solar installers already use an end-customer version of QuickPlan on their own homepage to advertise their services and expertise. By using these online-tools, interested homeowners can concretise their own solar power systems. The provided information creates a database for further design by the PV professional. This helps our customers to plan PV projects in a time-saving and safe manner and obtain orders easily and successfully, since potential customers have already been intensively advised online via QuickPlan. For a quick and adequate calculation of individual end-customer offers, QuickCalc 3.0 now also allows the customer to take into account his or her own expenses for installation and installation materials in the cost overview. Based on this data, the programme creates a complete end-customer offer which includes comprehensive and convincing documentation of the planning results in the design of your choice. EWS customers can manage these offers in their own QuickPlan project management tool.
