Origin Bifolding doors already offers exceptional dealer support to it’s nationwide installers of their folding doors. Part of their marketing support includes literature, showroom products and point of sale material. In addition Origin dealers have also benefitted from van livery.
Origin are now making further changes to their support packages for their dealers. Many of these will be revealed at the FiT Show 2016. These will include its new innovative ranges of blind systems, previously unseen in the UK.
New Sale Safe estimating software from Origin Doors.
At the FiT Show 2016 Origin will also be unveiling its Sale Safe software. Sale Safe has been designed from scratch by Origin to streamline the process of obtaining quotations and ordering products. In addition the software will deal with general administration involved in the sales and ordering process with Origin for their doors.
Why is software beneficial for the window industry.
Software that enables door and window fabricators or installers to price products has been available since the mid 1980’s. Windowlink were one of the first companies to provide this on a DOS based system over 25 years ago. Even though the system was basic it enabled prices to be obtained as well as cutting lists and material optimisation schedules for fabricators.
Window and door estimating software has now evolved to benefit from the latest technology offering enhanced designer software, ordering, administration and end user software for those demonstrating products in the home. Therefore it’s a natural progression for any business to offer their dealers a software solution that can benefit the estimating, sales and ordering process.
What does Sale Safe from Origin offer?
Origin say that their new software has been designed to streamline and improve the processes involved for their dealers that buy fabricated bifolding doors from Origin.
The software takes care of quotations, ordering of bifolding doors and administration. In addition it can create projects, send quotations and makes the ordering process with Origin easier.
This should help many of Origin’s dealers that presently rely Origin themselves to provide a firm quotation and who’ve not set up their own price lists for bifolding doors.
Indeed, any window business will know that obtaining prices quickly is very important to providing a good service to their own customers. PVCu products have historically been far easier to price than aluminium. Once again Origin are improving the estimating and sales processes involved in obtaining quotations for aluminium products and bifolding doors in particular.
Sale Safe will be demonstrated at FiT Show 2016.
Origin are again exhibiting at the hugely successful door and window industry trade show, FiT Show, held at The Telford International Centre on 12 – 14 April 2016.
New and existing Origin door installers will be invited to experience the software first hand, with Origin on hand to provide assurance where required.
Ben Brocklesby, Sales and Marketing Director at Origin says:
We have designed the brand new Sale Safe system in house with the absolute intention of making the lives of our trade agents much easier. The simplicity in design and streamline of processes means that the faster they can place orders, the more projects can be completed quickly and accurately, allowing installers to improve their overall customer service and satisfaction levels. We feel that the FiT Show is the perfect place to demonstrate our system, allowing visitors to get hands-on, using the technology for themselves. We very much look forward to meeting everyone once the doors open.
The introduction of Sale Safe by Origin is a welcome addition to an already excellent marketing and support package that Origin Doors offer to their dealers nationwide.
