Quickslide has unveiled its UK-wide Trade Partner Network backed by a new, customer focussed website with enhanced lead generation tools.
The fabricator has been building the Network for some time but is marking its official launch with the new site, which can now direct more leads than ever to registered Trade Partners all over the country.
At the core of the website is Quickslide’s new, user-friendly ‘design-a-window’ function which enables homeowners to select one or more of their local Quickslide Trade Partners, who then receive details of their enquiry to follow up.
“We see our trade customers as partners, not just customers, and the Network is our way of helping them to get the most out of that partnership,” said Tom Swallow, the Yorkshire-based fabricator’s Sales & Marketing Director.
“We’re always keen to support dynamic, forward thinking trade customers with things like their showroom, unbranded or overprinted marketing material, images and technical drawings for their website.”
He explained: “We have always understood that we can only prosper if our customers prosper so everything we do is with them in mind. We know that this new site and enhanced lead generation tool will be a major benefit to our trade partners and from the feedback we have received so far, we can see that they appreciate it”
The new website lets homeowners either learn about the products and search for the nearest Quickslide Trade Partner or they can design and submit their own choice of window, then the lead is sent direct to the nearest Quickslide Trade Partner.
One Trade Partner that is already reaping the benefits is West London Roofing & Glazing, where co-director Chris Goddard said: “We’ve been with Quickslide for six years; they have always been very supportive of us and given us a first class service so we’re very happy to be Trade Partners. It’s a good scheme that really works for us and it’s given us plenty of really good leads in our area.”
Besides its consumer-facing functions, the website also features a new, easy-to-use online ordering system for the company’s VS windows and bi-fold doors, and the trade can also use the design function as a quotation tool.
Quickslide is best-known for its acclaimed sliding sash windows, and the company has been instrumental in bringing this former niche product into the mainstream of the retrofit and new-build markets, but it also manufactures a wide range of other styles of windows and doors for trade and commercial customers.
