DIY Blinds: Solatech Helps Power E-Commerce Startup
DIY Blinds entered the window fashion market with the mission of making buying custom blinds easier than ever before. Their e-commerce site focuses on making shopping and checkout simple for customers.
“Simple setup. Stylish Savings. At our very foundation, this is what we stand for and who we are,” said DIY Blinds CEO Karina Grinberg. “Our intention is to inspire a DIY mentality and to equip our customers with the best possible pricing and solution for the custom blinds they desire.”
That’s one reason they chose Solatech to support the Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) functionality of their site by using Solatech’s Product Engine Service (PES). Solatech collaborates with DIY Blinds’ fabricators to manage all product information, dimensions, dependencies and prices. Using Solatech’s proprietary databases and PES-CPQ streamlines ordering and improves order accuracy, creating a better experience for customers.
“Solatech’s value has always been our objective of helping customers save time by eliminating unnecessary and repetitive work, while helping them focus on their customers and profitability,” said Solatech CEO Ray Soltis. “We’re excited to support a company whose goals are so closely aligned with ours.”
Solatech’s partnership with DIY Blinds doesn’t just focus on making the customer experience better–it extends to supporting the company’s operations. A Solatech backend interface links DIY Blinds with their fabricators to facilitate the flow of purchase orders and production status updates. This seamless connection improves order accuracy and speed, and ensures consumers have up-to-the-minute information about their orders.
