ODL Europe, manufacturer of industry-leading Blink Integral Blinds, has just launched an online ordering portal to allow customers to order blinds direct. Lee Summerfield, Business Development Manager of ODL Europe, said: “We are always looking at ways to add value to our offer and our new online ordering facility for Blink Integral Blinds is the latest example of helping our customers.”
Available on desktops, tablets and mobiles, the portal has been designed to be quick and easy to use. Customers enter the online portal which is preloaded with their secure account details. Once on the site, the easy to navigate portal allows customers to choose and confirm the blind sizes needed, select the colour options, confirm the room where the blind is to be fitted and, once all the details are completed, an immediate price is confirmed. Like most online ordering platforms, all goods are entered into a shopping basket to allow final checking prior to placing the order. Once manufactured, all Blink blinds undergo three stringent quality control checks at the company’s headquarters in Bootle, Merseyside. At this point, a delivery date is confirmed with the customer direct via the portal.
Lee commented: “The portal will speed up the quotation and order process for our customers. It is available 24/7 so fabricators and installers can get prices instantly and place orders when it suits them. It’s been designed to add value to the Blink experience.”
Blink Integral Blinds offer a modern alternative to traditional corded or cordless door and window blinds. Suitable for both windows and doors, they are an excellent upselling opportunity. They consist of an insulated glass panel with blinds between the glass. The blinds are available in a wide variety of colors to suit any décor. A simple operator switch controls the raise, lower and tilt facility, making it easy to control the amount of light that comes into the home. Full-height privacy channels eliminate light gaps, shadows and sunlight glare. Lee said: “Blink Integral Blinds are low maintenance and easy to use. Plus the lack of exposed cords means they’re much safer than the traditional blind alternatives.”
ODL Europe prides themselves on building value into building products. Blink Integral Blinds are the perfect example of this – and the online ordering portal is another example of how the company continues to add value to the overall customer experience.
