Similar to the free Nix Paints app, Chip "empowers users to virtually visit the paint department," the company said.
It offers fan decks from top paint brands, plus it consults on color, provides curated palettes for inspiration, and enables users to get a non-committal, hassle-free paint quote right in the app, per Nix.
“Even though we ourselves are working from home, we’re actively working with all of our partners to better their workflows and drive business to their business,” said Matthew Sheridan, CEO and founder of Nix Sensor. “One industry that we work closely with is the paint industry. In the current climate, we’ve found that people have time to refresh where they live and are looking for home-based activities, so our team has developed a way to make that happen. With Chip, homeowners now have a full-service tool that gets the project done without leaving their home.”
In addition to bringing in paint orders, Nix Sensor and its apps can support staffing shortages that stores may be experiencing.
“When paired with our color matching tools, like the Nix Mini, paint stores and departments have a color consultant in their pocket,” said Sheridan. “This is incredibly helpful for stores that have less staff but still need an eye for color. We can provide that eye.”
