We all live in a day and age where none of us is especially inclined to waste time. The fastest and easiest way to get from A to Z is generally the best. The fewer pain points the better. The convenience of looking something up in the Yellow Pages was replaced with Google. This was made easier yet by using voice commands like Siri, and the process just seems to get more and more refined until one day we might just think a thought and have it materialize. But until then, people like me are intent on pushing the envelope in pursuit of making life easier for people.
One thing that seems to be a right pain in the “you know what” is the installation of many products. We love buying them, but we hate installing them. So, the logical thing to do when we receive that accessory for our SUV, or that new TV, or that cool contemporary desk that we just bought on Amazon, is to Google an installer. Well that sure would seem easy, until you actually try it. OMG!!!! Do yourselves a favor and actually try it. In the awesome, tech-forward world in which we currently dwell, it’s actually a nightmare. Firstly you’ll likely get hold of someone that doesn’t know how to install your product. Then, after 10 frustrating phone calls to people that aren’t available, don’t understand, don’t answer, or just plain out seem dumb, you throw your hands up and give that installation a good old fashioned college try yourself. A few frustrated hours later you step back to admire the almost decent job you did of that desk whose drawers don’t really slide that well, or the truck bed cover which looks great, but leaks a bit in the corners. Bottom line, THERE MUST BE A BETTER SOLUTION! And there is, It’s called InstallerAlert!
Albert Einstein probably said it best when stating that the best solution is always the simplest, so long as it’s not too simple. Well what could be simpler than texting a number on the side of your package? Doing so will instantly alert all the installers of that product that are closest to your cell phone IN REAL TIME. No Google lookups, no visiting of websites, no calling and speaking to the idiot who calls you sir or ma’am fifty times, yet doesn’t offer solutions. Yes people, InstallerAlert is the answer. And isn’t it about damn time we shed the old Alexander Graham Bell approach of a blind phone call? Geez Louise people!
I believe strongly that most forward thinking brands will begin using their own InstallerAlert labels on their packaging in the very near future. All they need to do is upload their dealer database, create a unique label with call to actions and that’s it. Effectively their company will be “Uberized”, which is to say that their very products will act as the conduit between their consumers and their installers. TADA! What could be simpler than that?
I’d love your feedback here. Tell me if you think it’s a good or a bad idea. I can tell you with absolute certainty, that it could well save a marriage or two, which leads me to believe it’s not just a good idea, but one of the best I’ve seen in a long long time!
