Dulux Trade has recently partnered up with Lucas Group UK to create a revolutionary colour-matching app which makes it quicker and easier for specifiers and architects to find the right paint.
The app will enable users to scan walls and instantly order a matching paint from a Dulux Decorating Centre and have it delivered within four hours. In addition, the app will provide colour support and complementary palette advice straight from Dulux Colour Services Team to make the job as easy as possible.
The app also offers the opportunity to place a work request where users can take multiple scans, add job notes, take pictures of the space, add time frames and submit to the contractor.
The service is currently being trialled in London, having been developed in conjunction with Nix, as the latest step from Dulux Trade in enhancing its colour services via technology. Dulux Trade already offers colour support via a number of online and mobile tools such as the Colour Schemer, the Dulux Trade Specifier app and of course their dedicated Commercial Colour Services Team. However, the Lucas Colour & Concierge application is the first move to broadening access to quick and accurate colour matching on-site.
Alistair McAuley, Managing Director for Dulux UK, says: “We are constantly looking to evolve and develop our offer in the market, and our long standing partnership with Lucas provides a great platform for us to work collaboratively and move at pace with this exciting new tool.”
Danny Lucas, Executive Chairman of Lucas, says: “A decade ago, a paint matching machine came in a briefcase and cost nearly £10,000, now it comes pocket-sized. This has allowed us to develop a completely new approach to scoping works, identifying the correct paints and automatically making an online work request.”
