Bloomin’ Blinds, a fast-growing window fashion retailer with locations throughout the United States and Canada, built its reputation on customer experience. This family-owned and operated franchise business provides mobile sales and service for a wide selection of blinds, shades and shutters, all backed by lifetime warranties. Now, Bloomin’ Blinds has partnered with Solatech to help their franchise owners improve their workflow and profitability. Solatech’s Private Dealer Ordering System (based upon Solatech Focus), is a cloud-based point of sale system that works on iPads and other tablets, as well as laptops, is now the solution of choice for the entire Bloomin’ Blinds franchise group.
“Solatech was a natural selection in the evolution of our business,” said Bloomin’ Blinds CEO Kelsey Stuart. “We love the accuracy, the innovation, the creativity, and the desire to win through our success that Solatech brings to the table every day. I couldn’t be happier with the support and attention during our on boarding process, making a very complicated transition much smoother than we thought could be. I feel like we have found a partner that is truly interested in our success and one that desires to be part of it in the long run.”
“The power and simplicity of our private Dealer Ordering System make it the perfect point of sale system for Bloomin’ Blinds,” said Solatech CEO Ray Soltis. “It not only makes quoting and selling window fashions easier than it’s ever been, it’s simple to use and works on devices that many sales professionals already have. The learning curve is very brief. We had their entire franchise group up and running within a few weeks”
Under its agreement with Bloomin’ Blinds, Solatech has created a branded Focus interface for their Dealers. Franchise owners and their sales teams now have access to a complete suite of software tools that allow the quick creation of quotes, and approval and submission of sales orders. Along with accounting and dispatching system integrations, Solatech provides a complete system to run window fashion businesses.
“Great customer experiences are helped by retailers using accurate, consistent point of sale tools,” said Soltis. “For years, our point of sale customers have seen the results of using our fabricator-supported data to quote, sell and order window fashions. We’re excited to bring those benefits to Bloomin’ Blinds.”
