The Touch Vendor lead generation and quoting software from the Business Micros Group has been upgraded with the addition of Virtual Home, a new interactive visualiser tool to make it easier for homeowners to see how their chosen windows and doors will look in their property.
Doors and windows processed using the Touch Vendor design tool can be superimposed onto any house image and manually positioned to get a more accurate result. Users can change the style and colour as many times as they like and try out different looks before they buy.
The Virtual Home feature pops up automatically as soon as the Vendor user has added their chosen windows and doors to their virtual basket. They can upload as many images of the property as they like and see how the products will look from the kerbside or the garden or even from the inside looking out.
In quote and survey mode, the Virtual Home feature automatically adds a PDF of the finished design to the quote, alongside the product details and price ready to send to the customer. In lead generation mode, it adds the PDF to the enquiry acknowledgement that the customer receives and to the enquiry notification sent to the installer. All the installer has to do then is check the product choices and provide a price.
Virtual Home was created by The Consultancy, a Business Micros Group company, in partnership with the Business Micros software development team. Its director, Paul Callaghan said: “We looked at the limitations of other visualisers on the market and used our experience and expertise to do something better. Touch Vendor users can view their property from front and back and from inside and out and chop and change their design choices to see exactly what works best from different angles.
“We’re confident that it will really help customers to complete more sales, with a really slick, efficient and professional looking offering – all the way from enquiry to order.”
