Award-winning composite door manufacturer Vista Panels has strengthened its suite of installer support for XtremeDoor by launching a new and improved online door builder.
Working in partnership with Refresh Media, the new door builder allows homeowners to design their perfect XtremeDoor using the thousands of design options available from Vista. To complete the experience, consumers can even overlay the design on a picture of their house, and then submit their door choice for one of Vista’s approved installers to follow-up.
“We’re really pleased with our brand-new door builder, a tool which has become incredibly valuable for not only connecting consumers with XtremeDoor, but for generating leads for our installer customers,” comments Ian Smith, Vista’s Marketing and Business Development Manager. “The door builder has long been a popular feature of our website, so it’s important that we continually improve it to make it as accessible as possible for both installers and potential customers.”
“It has undoubtedly changed the way installers sell XtremeDoor, whether it’s through our consumer-facing website (www.xtremedoor.co.uk) or as an add-on to their own site. Instead of filling in a form, installers can sit down with a customer in their showroom and virtually create their composite door from scratch. The door builder goes through every step and includes every frame, glass, hardware and colour option available in the range. It’s a gamechanger that adds a new level of professionalism to an installer’s sales technique.”
The new and improved door builder joins a whole host of recent investments made by the Merseyside-firm. Not only has Vista invested in an additional paint line – helping to take production to well over 800 doors per week, but the firm has made three high-profile appointments, bolstering their specialist team of over 100 staff.
“The fantastic door builder is just one part of a complete XtremeDoor package, along with our brand-new, no-nonsense brochure and a very popular consumer-facing website,” Ian continues. “Whether it’s investments in our XtremeDoor support package or investments in our people and our operations, our aim is to deliver a fantastic product that consumers recognise, and installers love to sell. With the high-demand we are consistently seeing in the factory, I think it’s safe to say we are achieving this.”
Founded in 1995, Vista specialises in composite doors and uPVC doors for both trade and home improvement markets. Based from their state-of-the-art factory in Merseyside, Vista supply to fabricators across the UK and Europe. In 2016, Vista was acquired by Eurocell, one of the leading manufacturers of windows, doors, conservatories and roofline products.
