3M is introducing two new digital tools to help shop owners grow their businesses: the 3M Graphics Install Wizard and the 3M Graphics Hub.
The Graphics Install Wizard is a new software application that helps both shop owners and installers. Shop owners can access a database of installers based on location and capabilities, as well as list job opportunities, accept bids and book jobs. It intends to help shops manage a consistent workflow and stay organized, serving as a platform to share job details, documents, completion photos and more. 3M describes the Wizard as an opportunity to help installers increase visibility and receive more installation work by bidding on new projects.
The Graphics Install Wizard is linked to the new Graphics Hub, a free online resource centre for graphics manufacturers. The Hub offers educational resources, news on the latest innovations, information on different 3M training programs, as well as a look at new trends. In a demanding industry, the Graphics Hub aims to help graphics manufacturers keep the creative juices flowing and stay ahead of the competition.
There is no cost to sign up for and review the Graphics Install Wizard, and it is a free service for graphics manufacturers who use it to locate and manage external installers. There is a monthly subscription fee for managing internal installers, as well as a per-job fee for installers who accept and complete jobs through the software.
The Graphics Install Wizard is available for desktops and as an IOS app, and is not exclusive to 3M authorized installers.
