A great example of how technology & Shermin Finance can help double glazing retailers to generate customer sales during this difficult time.

A new double-glazing smartphone pricing app has just got even more attractive for installers – by now being able to offer a finance option.

Double Glazing App by Virtape allows the consumer to measure and price windows and doors remotely in under 90 seconds meaning there is no reason for a home visit.

And thanks to an agreement the company has secured with specialist home improvement finance provider Shermin Finance, a monthly finance cost can now also be displayed by the approved installer within the app.

Virtape Managing Director John Cohen said: “A monthly finance package will allow installers to not only stand out from their competition but provide a payment solution that suits today’s homeowner so they can opt for new windows and doors without affecting their cashflow.

“This is great news for installers as it should give any consumer the best option to price and buy double glazing without a home visit.

“We believe this is the final piece of the jigsaw for the Double Glazing App and we are delighted to be working with a respected firm like Shermin to help provide this.

“When we finally come out of lockdown we believe finance will be very important to consumers who understandably are wary of spending their savings.

Designed with sister company Leads 2 Trade to help installers get more enquiries and better conversion rates from their existing web visitors, the launch was brought forward to assist during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Double Glazing App is licensed by the installer and potential customers download it from the installer’s website, measure the windows/doors with the app or a tape measure, then select the style, colour and handles and receive an accurate quote from the app instantly, alongside a monthly finance price. They can then confirm the price by booking a survey and sign up in the normal way.

“Offering a monthly finance price will provide another attractive option for customers and make it easier for installers to sell their products and grow their business,” added John.

Virtape is waiving the monthly licence fee for the duration of the coronavirus outbreak and installers will run on a month to month agreement so there are no long-term commitments.
