Streamlining the Customers’ Home Improvement Journey

Nowadays, consumers don’t want to wait before receiving a quote for their requested service, particularly on items that make a house a home.

Combined this with the massive amount of competition in the double glazing industry, a difficult and unfriendly sales process could easily cost a window or door installer a big sale. 

This is why TruFrame developed a tool that would allow our installers to offer a state-of-the-art, interactive specification builder that plants the homeowner firmly on the road to purchase.

QuoteBuilder is a tool that was specifically designed for TruFrame’s uPVC suppliers. It’s a tool which helps to streamline the customer’s home improvement journey by giving them an easy way of designing their windows and doors with a visual representation and an easily-accessible quote, meaning even small home improvement companies can offer something the larger ones can’t.

With such a new tool though, it can be hard to get accustomed to and fully make the most of it – in this article, we’ll explore the main benefits QuoteBuilder.

What is QuoteBuilder?

QuoteBuilder is a smart online tool that takes much of the pressure off the uPVC installer.

Instead of going back and forth via emails, phone calls and house visits, an installer can let the homeowner build the specification (down to the exact measurements), thus doing much of the preliminary work of a salesman.

It allows homeowners to create a bespoke uPVC frame specification, starting at the basic design stage (choosing the type of window, for example), and then moving onto choosing the particulars, such as the amount of openings, colours, textures and hardware.

By offering such an immersive, interactive tool that allows homeowners to build their frame specification from the ground up, uPVC installers can get their foot in the door straight away.

On top of this, installers using the advanced tool can ensure their company is the first to supply a price, setting themselves apart from the competition both in speed and in technique – qualities greatly appreciated when operating on someone’s home.

Why homeowners use QuoteBuilder

QuoteBuilder takes almost all of the work away from building specifications, meaning homeowners are able to take the power into their hands in terms of pushing their projects forward.

Rather than having to wait for an installer to visit their house, the homeowners do most of the technicalities of the job, such as inputting the measurements and specifications, so that when the quote is eventually finalised, all of the required information is displayed so that uPVC installers can focus on actually installing the products.

Aside from making the specification process easy, QuoteBuilder actually makes it fun for the homeowner too. 

Being able to see their brand new, custom-built window or door frame in their specified colour, all whilst being in their actual home, is a fantastic process that adds value to the installer’s offering.For more information on how we support our installers, visit our Trade page.
