Coatings company PPG announced last week the launch of PPG Services, a “digitally-enabled service platform” that aims to allow businesses to identify and connect with painters and then manage and schedule general painting maintenance projects.

“The painting service industry is evolving at a rapid pace, creating an opportunity for PPG to more efficiently manage complex customer needs,” said Tim Knavish, PPG Senior Vice President, global architectural coatings.

“Our customers are looking for a simpler resource to manage ongoing general painting maintenance across their multiple facilities. PPG Services builds on our long-term growth strategy to deliver differentiated digital solutions for key customers. The system simplifies the project management process; provides small and medium-sized painting firms access to more jobs; allows these painters to grow their business; and connects commercial customers with a marketplace of established professional painters.”

The company notes that the service is intended for commercial businesses with multiple locations across a national footprint, such as commercial property managers for large retail, office and hospitality chains, and third-party facility management companies. The service is not, however, intended for large commercial projects, which are typically served by general contractors.

The service aims to deliver:

  • Comprehensive, one-stop service powered by proprietary technology from Paintzen, a tool that connects painters with home and business owners for residential and multi-site commercial painting projects;
  • Customer-focused solutions, including painting services and products that are backed by PPG; and
  • Consistency, efficiency, speed and savings through job quoting, scheduling, project management and more.
