With the introduction of HIPs, and especially EPCs, we've been receiving an ever increasing number of enquiries from DEAs wishing to provide floor plans for their clients.
We're very keen to support this new demand, however, as many DEAs have found out, there's not a "one size fits all" solution. Each client requires their floor plan in a file format that is supported by their software company e.g. JPG, GIF, WMF, EMF, PNG, transparent, etc. They may also need the plans to be a certain size and orientation. Many will require customisations such as adding colour, watermarks or a different disclaimer style.
However, the problems don't stop there. Clients will require adjustments to many plans to meet with PMA regulations (room names or measurements perhaps) or simply to please vendors - we've heard from almost hundreds of DEAs who don't want to get involved in this aspect of the service.
The great news is that we will shortly be introducing a new product that will solve ALL of these issues and best of all it's FREE for DEAs!
Quite simply, a DEA will use Metropix to quickly draw a floor plan. It is then automatically transferred to their clients' Metropix account where it's processed and delivered immediately in the required format, size etc. If the client wants to make amendments that can do so online and receive the amended plan back seconds later. It couldn't be easier!
