DOORSEXTRA “24/7 Sales Manager” to revolutionise door sales A number of people have woken up to the need for 24/7 ordering but very few have made it quick or easy to use. Door-Stop has now gone one step further with its new “24/7 Sales Manager” website plug-in. This allows fabricators and installers to use online ordering and pricing for composite doors on their own websites, linking to Door-Stop production in the same way www.door-stop.co.uk does. “The 24/7 Sales Manager has been developed by our longterm digital agency partner, The Consultancy, to add another dimension to customers’ sales and marketing,” explains Managing Director Nick Dutton. “It is a revolutionary tool, a simple to use plug-in, which slots seamlessly into existing websites. It gives fabricators and installers customers their own version of the DoorStop configurator making it easy for their trade or homeowner clients to design, order and pay for the door they want, at any time of day or night. Our customers approve each order before it goes to Door-Stop, giving them control of the process. “If installers prefer not to divulge prices to homeowners, they don’t have to, their customers can use the door designer and request a quote at the end.” Door-Stop International Ltd, Website: www.door-stop.co.uk, Tel: 01623 446336 SHOWROOM REFURBISHMENT Flair Plastic Products has just refurbished its showroom to display more of Solidor’s impressive composite door range to the trade and consumer sectors, as the composite door pioneer continues to grow at a pace. Throughout the UK, installation companies are looking to enhance their showroom offering and Flair’s newly refurbished site is particularly impressive, with 13 Solidor composite doors on show, each with a different exterior colour. Yet Solidor can now offer an incredible 17 colours inside and out, along with 18 colour combinations for its chamfered or ovolo Kömmerling outer frames. The showroom environment at Flair has proven to be a great way in which to display the solid core composite doors from Solidor, along with many of their other key features including exclusive hardware options, through colours and wide range of glass designs. All the PVCu materials used by Solidor are also lead-free, something that Flair also support with the use of Kömmerling window and door systems. Adrian Keegan, strategic consultant for Flair comments: ‘It’s important for us as a business to be aligned with the best brands and products in the industry and that’s why we solely specify Solidor.’ From left to right: Gareth Mobley of Solidor with Adrian Keegan of Flair Plastic Products.
