The IDM Family.
Taking a few quick snaps, not only of the window(s) you want treated but some contextual shots of the room in general will assist our consultants in making their selection of appropriate swatches and samples to show you.
If at all possible having all decision makers present makes the whole pre-sales process much more efficient. We often find where two deicsion makers are present, a number of requirements are raised which might not be identified if only one decision maker is present. Also decision makers are able to feed off each others preferences making agreement over a number of elements of the solution much easier to arrive at, regardless as to whether you proceed with Ideal Drape Makers or another company.
