New app designed to solve installer issues A new app has been launched in order to solve specific challenges that local contractors and installers face on a day-to-day basis.

Dakea, the leading manufacturer of high-quality, affordable roof windows that are built for the trade, designed its PRO.App based on feedback from tradespeople that they needed digital solutions which would enable them to work more efficiently. 

With time of the essence, especially right now given the backlog of work created by the COVID-19 crisis and lockdown, tradespeople need to streamline their working processes as much as possible.

To help achieve this, the Dakea loyalty program provides roof window installers with added value during their working day thanks to the fact that they can easily register for a 20-year warranty and can redeem points for special rewards.

Installers will receive the above benefits simply by scanning the QR code found on Dakea roof windows while they work, significantly reducing the red tape and hassle usually associated with applying for a long-term guarantee.

In addition, by building up credits simply by doing their job, installers can make their work go further. The rewards available from the Dakea are also aimed at helping to support tradespeople with their business, as users can exchange points to receive workwear, kit and marketing materials in addition to e-vouchers, hampers and electric goods.

Mhairi McDougall, Country Manager UK and Ireland at Dakea, said: “It’s very important right now that the construction industry is able to pull together and support each other, as it’s true that we are all in this together and our trades matter.

“At Dakea we’ve always believed that the construction world in particular is very closely knit, as it relies on so many people doing so many things in order for it all to work. This is why we’ve created an app that not only allows users to claim high-value rewards, but which also streamlines the usually tricky process of applying for a product warranty.”
