Last week we hit a great milestone with CamdenDirect – 100,000 quotes entered through the website. This amount of activity, since launch in March 2021, indicates how successful and useful the system has been for Camden’s customers.

"CamdenDirect has made life so much easier for me when ordering. No more emailing, phoning, or faxing. It's been easy to design the windows and doors myself, and I can see what the costs are straight away. I only wish it had come sooner!" Anthony Madden, AM Glazing and Joinery Ltd. (Camden Customer)

CamdenDirect is an in-depth window and door ordering system, which is accessed through an online portal. The software is available to all Camden’s customers and gives them full access over design, quotes and orders.

Camden are the first window manufacturer in the UK and Ireland to have designed our own fully integrated software from the point of customer requirements all the way through to product delivery and acceptance.

“It has been a pleasure for the whole team to collaborate on the Camden Direct project and the overwhelming positive feedback from customers has been very rewarding.”  Paul Logan, Camden Software Developer
