We carried out market research and found that:
- On average, companies and independent salons take about 3 hours to complete the calculations for a SINGLE order
- On average, many retailers carry out about 250 calculations annually
If we presume that an average interior decorator’s hourly rate is 9 EUR, we get that retailers in the curtains and blinds business lose about:
- 6 750 EUR per year (based on the available European-businesses-related data) only because they carry out the calculations manually
Therefore, each time your employee calculates an offer for your customer, the company’s variable costs for every estimation are:
- 28 EUR per order (on average)
Human-errors in your calculations
We have researched and found that even the most experienced employees make mistakes in their calculations.
- We found that, due to calculating orders using hand and a basic calculator, companies lose 4 to 12 EUR per order on average
- That is around 5-10% of their respective annual revenues every single year
This is what hand-written calculations look like:
We conducted a research study during which we spent hours talking to hundreds of interior decorators, designers, and curtains & blinds store owners worldwide (from Afganistan to Zimbabwe). We found that nearly 95% of businesses working with fabrics (curtains and blinds) prepare calculations by hand whilst using a basic calculator. It is time-consuming and tiring, and, as a result, employees are prone to making mistakes in their calculations.
