Installer Support

NEW ONLINE MARKETPLACE IS AIMED AT INSTALLERS

Recognising that the business support needed by installers and SMEs in the industry is often difficult to reach , ‘ UBoom ’ - a new , first-of-its kind online service - aims to make such support not only affordable but instantly accessible . Incorporating products and services chosen specifically for the sector , UBoom offers installers an invaluable and vast range of toolkits to help their business boom .
From business management tools , employment contracts , training schemes , marketing , sales , telephone answering services , photography , social media , website audits , feedback programmes , showroom
support and much much more , UBoom pulls together the most appropriate and affordable fenestration industry support and presents it all in one ‘ at a glance ’ place . Whether it be creating a virtual showroom or sourcing the right software for selling windows and doors online or getting hold of an easy invoicing system , UBoom has done all the hard work and identified the ideal solutions for installers from a range of tried and trusted suppliers .
UBoom is the latest initiative from Inside the Box Marketing . Commenting on the launch of UBoom , Director Chris Globe says : “ Like any other successful enterprise ,
UBoom is simply solving a problem . Over the years it has become clear when talking to installers and SMEs in the fenestration industry that they have all the same business needs and challenges as largescale companies . However , so many of the business systems and support tools in the market are often too expensive and not necessarily appropriate for them . We believe that solutions that are specifically tailored to the sector , hand-picked , affordable and all in one place are something that installers and SMEs will truly benefit from .
“ Similarly , as Inside The Box Marketing approaches ten years in business we have met so many small
suppliers over the years with fantastic products which will really benefit the industry ; it felt like the right time to put all the parties in this landscape together and so we have created UBoom .
“ I ’ m also thrilled that we have so much interest expressed by managers of fenestration industry membership groups . They see UBoom as a great way of helping their networks become stronger and more profitable by accessing the toolkits on the platform . For network managers we can create their own UBoom marketplaces tailored to the needs of their own members . In addition , I can see a time when the systems houses also recognise
UBoom as a means of providing extra support to their fabricator / installer customers , particularly with reference to the sales and marketing products it offers .
“ At a time when online trading is increasingly becoming
the most practical way forward for many businesses , the team at UBoom is confident the industry will welcome the help it provides .”
