Framepoint feature helps installers deal with price volatility

The latest feature to launch on Tommy Trinder’s Framepoint app allows installers to flex selling prices in a matter of seconds, its CEO has stated. The feature is a vital tool in a volatile market, according to the software business’ founder and CEO, Chris Brunsdon.

“Installers tell us they are simply unable to absorb the various price shocks that have been coming at them,” Chris explained. “We’ve been inundated with requests for a feature that lets them pass on price changes to the end user in a fast and flexible way.

“The new ‘flex prices’ function allows Framepoint users to update underlying price matrices for any product up or down by any given percentage, simply by checking a box. All changes are date and time stamped, and a change log is clearly visible so that installers can keep track of price adjustments.”

The launch comes as data released by representatives of Tommy Trinder suggests that prices are firmly on the move. The company’s representative has reported that average quote values rose to a record high of £7,485 in quarter three, up from £6,548 in the same period last year; an increase of over 14%.

Chris continued: “The time is definitely now for this new feature. Double-digit inflation and the impact of ongoing instability in the price of glass, resin, aluminium and steel are all filtering through to the prices that homeowners are paying for their windows and doors.”
