The SafeFrame campaign steps up

SafeFrame Header

With a lot of enthusiasm building for our SafeFrame™ integrated smoke containment system, we are stepping up our marketing campaign to architects and contractors. We are creating new videos, graphics and messaging to promote SafeFrame in digital and social media channels.

Soon, you will see changes to our public-facing website. We are also making the new promotional materials available for your use through the sales portal page.

Included in that upload will be the 20-minute SafeFrame training presentation with professional voice over for use with distributors who were not able to make our live training sessions.

If you have any other questions, requests, or ideas you would like to share, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email.

SafeFrame Product Training – 20 Minutes with Big Benefits

SafeFrame Product Training Header

Not all of you were able to get in your SafeFrame™ training during February. But there is still time to make sure you know all the ways that SafeFrame can help build your success. We can still schedule a brief product training session with those who haven’t attended. Contact your Sales Rep to choose one of the time slots available for your training session.

The 20-minute session gives you a high-level view of the product and its benefits, as well as how to quote and order, and where to spec it.

Our goal is to have every distributor trained and ready during our big SafeFrame marketing blitz that kicked off this month. If you need help scheduling with your Sales Rep, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Congratulations Candace Kitchen

 

Chances are you have had opportunities to interact with Candace Kitchen recently. And if you’ve seen her run the recent SafeFrame™ training sessions, you’ve seen her expertise and enthusiasm in action.

We are proud to announce that Candace has been promoted to Customer Service Specialist.

Her new role includes:

  • Handling design support calls
  • Researching opportunities to pass on to our Reps and Distributors
  • Reaching out to code officials to get confirmation for code compliance issues
  • Scheduling Zoom meetings, including running our SafeFrame launch webinars
  • Supporting the needs of our Reps and Distributors

Many of you have shared your positive experiences with Candace. Here is one we recently received: “I wanted to take this time to let you know what a help Candace has been to me over the past several months. She has been more than willing to help me at every turn, from explaining the ‘verbiage’ used in specifications, teaching me the ins and outs of Construct Connect, to assisting with reaching out to code officials, architects & end-users. She is always available, taking the ‘open door policy’ to another level. Even when she is out of the office, she still finds the time to answer my questions. Candace does all of this in a kind, caring manner – what a bonus! I consider Candace to be an integral part of our team, and I’m thankful I have her to turn to when I need a hand.”

We are thankful too. Congratulations, Candace.

Coming soon: Installation Training in a Remote World

onlinetraining headerpost

With fewer people wishing to travel to Michigan for installation classes, we have decided to create a more robust Total Door Training Institute on our website. We want to create the entire installation training course as an online option.

To kick it off, we recently shot an installation video for our new SafeFrame™ product in our corporate showroom. John Pierre walks you through step-by-step instructions to install the entire system. It is the first of many to come.

We will introduce the complete video to you soon, as well as additional materials on SafeFrame.
