The Dulux Trade Contract Partnership Scheme opens up access to the leading 250 commercial decorating firms in the UK

Reflecting the unstoppable global trend for location-based search, the newly designed free-to-use website ensures that searching for high quality contractors based on location, project size, skills and accreditations is easier than ever. Additionally, a new more comprehensive assessment process that takes client reviews into account will be live from 1st January 2016, allowing clients to compare contractors without commitment.

In a bid to drive up and continually improve the standards of those commercial decorators listed within its network, the updated Dulux Trade Contract Partnership website will also provide Contract Partners access to a suite of training courses from the new Dulux Academy, which launched in October.

Duncan Lochhead, commercial marketing manager at Dulux Trade, said: “We know there is no shortage of great commercial decorators but we were aware that our clients find it difficult to in find the perfect one for their projects.  Our upgraded online portal will now allow them to locate a top-notch commercial specialist in seconds.”

All of the updates to the Contract Partnership Scheme have been designed with clients in mind. The scheme intelligently matches first class contractors with clients’ needs, and the newly improved search functionality on the website is key to this.

“All of the contractors we use are rigorously tested and retested to ensure that they’re continually providing the highest standards of work.  Our new peer review system ensures that clients can see genuine customer feedback, giving them greater confidence when they are choosing a contractor.  Our invitation to tender function will also make it quicker and easier for specifiers to connect with the right contractor. All they need to do is choose the contractors they would like to invite to tender and complete the required information online.”

The updated scheme is part of Dulux Trade’s mission to make quality commercial decorating truly valued for the amazing transformations it can achieve.
