Immaculate Painters & Decorators wanted some help to make pricing up easier. Working out measurements, converting feet and inches into metres and square metres to price up large housing schemes was being done on paper, typed up and emailed out to the client. As the company grew this was taking up a lot of time.
Speaking with Immaculate we drew up a plan of how the app should work, managing clients, quotes and taking care of all the measurements in an easy to use iPad application.
We looked at quotes and how we could make them easier for Immaculate to do. Quotes are treated like containers, into which they put rooms to make it easier to fill out and edit if needed. Rooms are given names that appear on the quote and then they can enter all the items they’re going to decorate, whether that be a ceiling that needs to be in square metres, skirting boards that are done in linear metres or doors that are done as fixed fee items. If they need to convert from feet into metres they just press a button, enter the figures and the app will automatically do the calculation for them.
The app makes it easier to price up a job, and allows them to do it straight away in a client’s house rather than writing down all the measurements, quoting and then getting back to the client. Speeding up the process and increasing conversions.
In the end the app makes a branded quote PDF that can be printed out or emailed to the client and then saved for later in the client’s record.
