Prisma Frames now on Lifesaver!
Our customizable Prisma Frames continue to inspire design in frame shops across the United States. Since their inception with Bella, we have had an Excel-based pricing calculator for ease of pricing at point of sale. Using pull down lists, the Prisma Frames Pricing Calculator allows users to select their specifications for each customizable option in creating the Prisma Frame of their design, and populating a price for the frame. As a point of sale tool, the calculator can give wholesale cost or retail cost for the frame only. We’ve been asked often if any of the framing software programs have Prisma Frames in their databases. Due to the overwhelming number of options from the customization of the frames, we have not been on any of the point of sale (POS) framing software programs. The customization of Prisma Frames would require developers to design a platform to be integrated to their software specific to Prisma Frames.
This winter, the folks at Lifesaver discussed with us the possibility of designing such a platform for their software to integrate Prisma Frames into Lifesaver! After much work and testing, in mid-September, Lifesaver launched the ability to price a custom Prisma Frame as part of a complete framing package with an easy to use program mirroring our Prisma Frames Calculator.
To price or generate an order for a Prisma Frame in Lifesaver, from the Main Menu page click on “Write Orders” and then “Frame It”. Next to the first box in the Moulding/Fillet Line you will see a purple “P” (from our logo).
A new screen will pop-up showing the pull-down option lists for easy use. Simply choose your options and enter the size of the frame and you will see a price populated on the right! To set your mark-up, click “options”. To complete a frame package click “continue”.
We have heard from customers who use Lifesaver, the Prisma Frames addition was most welcome and they have found it easy to use. Many thanks to the people Lifesaver for their effort, time and support of our product!
