Integrations For The Art Industry

 


What is Art Installer Network?

AIN is a cloud-based program custom designed for professionals who deal with the installation of art and murals. By integrating tasks and utilizing a network of local professionals, AIN has essentially removed the cost of travel from art projects. AIN saves art providers (and installers) time and money.

(80% of the price paid for the install goes to the installer.)

FAQ’s:

Where is Art Installer Network located?

AIN exists on a server. Computer programs generate prices and choose installers based on zip codes and calendars. Its mobile friendly and automated. (Think Uber for art installers.)

How are orders placed?

Customers follow the “Estimate” link, enter the number of pieces to be installed and describe the hardware to be used. AIN has pre-negotiated standardized rates based on average completion times of the various the hardware used. Surcharges have been established to compensate for common situations which slow an installer’s pace (heights, concrete, designers). With many variables involved, spreadsheets and formulas calculate competitive prices and reasonable pay. (Think Priceline for art projects.)

How are projects scheduled?

Obtain a price and proceed to the “schedule” link to complete the form regarding information about the location. Details of the project are posted to a regional bulletin board where installers view the details. Installers activate a notification systems which aleerts us to their interest. (Think Match.com for art providers.)

And those installers will work for the price obtained from the website?

Exactly!

What if nobody is available?

AIN will post to more boards in the next closest markets. Many installers don’t mind traveling or may have other reasons for being in the area. Its rare that a project goes unfilled.

What if project’s schedule changes after an installer has been chosen?

AIN uses a 3rd party booking service which is controlled by the client and integrated with the installer’s and A.I.N.’s calendars. All parties are notified of any changes made (in case AIN needs to post that project’s details again.)

Who pays who?

Residential clients pay the installer who pays AIN a finder’s fee. Corporate clients pay AIN on standard commercial terms and AIN pays the installer in a more timely manner.

Are the installers experienced?

The installers are establish professionals who provide art installation and other related services as part their business.

Are they insured?

Liability insurance is a requirement. Some installers also have Workman’s Compensation insurance and automobile umbrellas.

How are travel expenses calculated?

Since projects are shown to local installers, travel expenses are minimized. Compensation for tolls, parking, fuel and a standard of a hour of one-way travel time have a “Call-out” of $80 in most cities. In the dozen largest designated market areas and at US and foreign military bases the call-out rate is $120.

How are foreign projects handled?

As with domestic projects, we’ve eliminated the cost of travel. We sponsor working vacations and incorporate the project into an installer’s itinerary. Our most recent project was in Ansbach, Germany and pair a local master craftsman with a US installer who travel Europe before and after the install.

Does A.I.N. get bids from installers?

No. In order for the program to be able to generate prices, AIN needed to standardize variable. For most projects, that price is determined by the number of pieces and the hardware used. Depending in the size of the order, T-Screw security averages $17/piece. When paying an installer by the hour, it’s about $73 per.

What is the cost to use the AIN program?

10% of the bill.

When is it paid?

When the reservation is made.

Feedback From The Nation's Top Art Consultants and Interior Designers:

“We have had great success using Art Install Network for our decor installations nationwide. The installers have been very clean, courteous, and someone that we would want to represent our company on a job site. The installations for all the jobs have not been simple framed art hanging and we have been very impressed with the experience and knowledge of the installers provided. The jobs were 2-3 day full decor packages including, framing, graphics, taxidermy, signage and other custom items that require special attention to detail and custom hanging methods. The installers not only were able to handle these items but also provided us with additional suggestions to improve and speed up future jobs. They were also able to analyze unforeseen on site issues and provide solutions. The quality of labor and personnel provided has always exceeded the cost for the service and we look forward to continuing to get quality installations done nationwide for our customers.” Bryan D. Vaughn, Vice President-Public Imagery

“I am very pleased with the work performed by this company. The installer contacted me days prior to starting the work, was flexible with scheduling, and was prompt to arrive and begin working. Not only did he hang drapes, but he also hung picture frames, mirrors and artwork (which required to be removed from crates).
