Quoting For Work A Must For Installers Through Lockdown

Despite the country being forced into a second UK lockdown due to Covid-19, installers will still be able to price work remotely thanks to a revolutionary replacement window and door pricing app.

Double Glazing App from Virtape, a sister company of Leads 2 Trade, has been designed to provide installers with the ability to quote work remotely 24/7 and generate more leads, enquiries, and survey requests from existing web visitors.

And it’s set to play a pivotal role for installers during this uncertain time – which is why Virtape is offering a free 60-day trial for all installers.

John Cohen, Managing Director of Virtape, said: “Despite being in lockdown it’s important that installers keep their marketing running whilst they cannot get to see people face-to-face.

“So, running Double Glazing App on your social media advertising and website will ensure you have surveys and prospects to book in as soon as you are able to get out and see them.

“At Virtape we will be working remotely to make sure we continue to offer the same unrivalled support for installers to help them continue to quote for work so they are able to hit the ground running once restrictions are reduced.”

Double Glazing App allows the customer to download the app from the installer’s website onto their smartphone, use it to measure their windows and doors and select the colours and styles they want, and then submit the information to receive an accurate price, all in under 90 seconds. They can then confirm it by booking a survey and signing up in the normal way.

Test results have shown that between 4%-10% of website visitors downloaded the App for an instant price, with 20% of downloads measuring windows and doors with the app and over half of those booked a survey to confirm prices.

One company that has already seen the benefit of using Double Glazing App is the Bury-based Composite Door Sales, with the company’s MD James commenting: “We went on our first survey and won an order for £2700 – and the measurements the customer submitted to us were bang on.”

And with uncertainty surrounding how long the lockdown could be, Double Glazing App will be a necessity, according to John.

“Before the coronavirus pandemic more homeowners were looking for affordability before they even got involved with sales. Now, with salespeople not allowed into homes, and many homeowners likely to be uncomfortable with reps entering their home due to social distancing in the future, being able to price jobs remotely will be essential.

“We want every installer to see what Double Glazing App can do for them without any financial consideration which is why we are offering a free 60-day trial, and we should be able to get an installer set up in two days.”
