Colour choice made easy with Crown Paints’ new app
Published by Jo Foster for Crown Trade in Housing and also in Care and Support, Education
Crown Paints has continued its investment in the latest technology for specifiers with the launch of the MyRoomPainter™ app.
Set to transform the way colour is explored and selected, the new app allows tradespeople to offer instant schemes while using a smartphone or mobile tablet to show how any palette will look in situ.
Available for free download, the online tool also contains a colour-matching function, a handy paint calculator and an inspirational library.
Projects can be saved and shared online too, providing an opportunity to consider the options before selecting a scheme.
Debbie Orr, Crown Paints’ Marketing Manager, said: “MyRoomPainter™ will be a helpful tool to aid the way specifiers approach colour.
“Pictures of a room can be taken and clients can then see exactly how a finished project will look in whatever shade is chosen, taking away the fear factor from choosing colour.
“It’s instant colour scheming and alongside other tools such as the paint calculator and colour-matching tool, we think it will prove an invaluable asset in our bid to provide the best possible support to specifiers.”
The app is now available to download free of charge for smartphone or tablet from the App Store or Google Play.
MyRoomPainter™ is the latest offering from Crown Paints, who recently launched a new website for specifiers developed to make the selection of products and services more effective and easier than ever.
The site – at www.crownpaintspec.co.uk - pulls together detailed information in a clear and concise format to underpin a more selective, sustainable and speedier specification process – putting access to Crown Paints’ industry-leading services, including site specific surveys, the colour service and Sustainable Smart Maintenance just a click away.
This is backed up by the latest information in areas including relevant fire safety information and legislation, environmental details and case studies across various sectors – and products are listed in a dedicated resource area for quick and easy reference.
The new specification website also includes access to Crown Paints’ popular PaintSpec Finder®, which delivers instant and technically-detailed specification plans for exterior and interior projects through a user-friendly format.
This allows users to filter through a great deal of technical information to pinpoint exactly what products - from the specification brands of Crown Trade, Sadolin and Sandtex Trade - they need for their chosen projects.
PaintSpec Finder® then pulls together the specifications into a report with a personalised cover sheet showing the customer’s name, the project and the user’s own details, which is then all ready for specifiers to hand to their client or add to their tender or reference documents.
