Bloomin’ Blinds has always prioritized technology and innovation. From improving the efficiency of our internal operations, as well as making the buying process easier for each and every customer, we continue to make great strides.
Our recently introduced service tracker is a great example, as it allows customers to track our tech’s dispatch vehicles in real-time via GPS. The system also shares a headshot and brief bio of who’ll be arriving for the service. All this allows the customer to feel safer, and more secure, ahead of their service or consultation.
We are excited to continue our process of introducing exciting new tech to our industry in 2021 with the recent rollout of our new Window Treatment Visualizer tool. While other big names in the window covering industry gatekeep this technology, we have determined its best use is in the hands of the consumers.
The Window Treatment Visualizer Tool
Available on our website right now, this is the first of its kind to be placed directly in the hands of the consumer. The Window Treatment Visualizer is just another example of our commitment to provide best-in-class customer service, thus enriching the customer experience as a whole.
Located in the main menu on the homepage, the visualizer can also be leveraged by the brand’s network of franchise owners as part of the consultation process. This helps franchisees showcase what products would look like to consumers to improve our consultation process.
Example of the Sheer Horizontal shade-2 Vane in Grey:
Designed to take the headache out of projects with an easy-to-use online platform, consumers can visualize and design their dream window treatments instantly on any device available. We’re hoping that our customers can be even more confident about their purchase by either uploading a photo of their own home or by choosing a stock photo to customize with the window treatments of their choice.
The tool detects and auto-defines the window perimeter to showcase products on all types of windows. Colors and products can be switched out with the click of a button, and projects can be saved and sent to the closest Bloomin’ Blinds location for accurate quoting and more.

What 2020 Has Taught Us
Of course, this past unprecedented year influenced our decision to keep this useful tool in the hands of our customers. “We’re all about the customer experience, so putting this tool into the hands of the consumer was a no-brainer for us,” explained Kelsey Stuart, the CEO of Bloomin’ Blinds. “The Window Treatment Visualizer will not only empower our customers to feel confident about their decision, but also get them excited about their purchase. And, the same goes for franchisees. This tool will be a game-changer when it comes to sales and consultations, helping our franchise owners to better inform customers about available product lines. Plus, as our country continues to try and minimize the spread of COVID-19, this tool will help keep both our customers and franchise owners safe by making consultations efficient and reducing the amount of time spent in a home.”
