Frequently asked questions
What is MEHM and what does it offer?
MEHM is a web based software as a service (SaaS) that was specifically built for the
interior decor, window covering and construction trade industries.
More specifically, it provides all the unique selling, quoting and business management
tools for those who manage decor projects, home remodeling services, repair services,
sell window blinds, draperies, shades,
shutters or any other similar items. It's everything you'll need to run your business.
What makes MEHM better than all other industry software?
Some programs claim to be designed for the interior decor or window coverings industry,
but once you dig deeper you find they are not much more than a pretty CRM with a "made
for the decor or blinds industry" title on top.
The fact is, there are only a few purpose-built programs out there that do anything
remotely close to what MEHM Software does.
And if you sell window coverings and are looking for a program that will do ALL of your
quoting, for ALL brands and ANY product type then the choice is clear. It's MEHM.
Who are the developers and what experience do they have?
An important question many overlook when making software decisions. Joe Mehm, MEHM
Software's Founder and President,
has been a part of the home decor and window coverings industry for 35+ years. Having
created and established multiple local retail operations during his first 13 years in
he is also responsible for some of the top Internet based window covering, house plans
and home decor sites such as BlindsWholesale.com, HomeDecorating.com, AmazingPlans.com
With over two decades experience creating exceptionally detail orientated software and
possessing an intimate
knowledge of the retail side of the business, it would be difficult to find anyone more
qualified to produce such a service.
What is the Windowware window coverings quote module?
One of the key components of MEHM software is our exclusive Windowware window coverings
module. The Windowware quoting system was created by Joe Mehm in 2006 and has been in
use by many window coverings professionals ever since.
In early 2018 we decided to couple the Windowware module with our newly developed
Project Management system. MEHM knew that most interior designers sell window coverings
and the other project maangement systems out there lacked that functionality.
The Windowware module is part of our cloud-based project manager and it's powered by an
extremely robust Products Configurator. What is a Products Configurator you may ask?
Well, it's the heart of the Windowware system. If you are wanting to generate custom
window covering quotes, then it's an absolute necessity. It does all the calculations on
the back end so you can be sure that ALL product and option prices are calculated
correctly. Calculating an accurate estimate demands price structures that may include:
grid-based pricing, single line pricing, width based, height based, flat list, flat net,
percent based, square inch based,
square foot based, add for shutter frames, divide overall sizes by two or three, sub
option grids, by yardage, number of panel and on and on.
Building a system to accomodate just one manufacturer or pricing structure would have
been simple. But we wanted to create an unrestricted system that allows dealers to build
their businesses the way THEY want.
And that meant having to address all the complexities of various pricing options.
If you've been looking at ANY other software solution, be sure to specifically ask if
their program can do what ours can above. It's a very important question. Most other
And if it can't, then it's back to hand quoting from price grids with a calculator.
