CLEVELAND (July 16, 2020) – Sherwin-Williams now offers a Project Bidding tool exclusively through the S-W PRO mobile app to help users efficiently capture job details and quickly deliver a professional bid to their customers.

“Our goal is to provide premium products, resources and support that help professionals run a better painting business,” said Jeff Winter, vice president of residential marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “The new Project Bids tool enables transparency and trust between painting contractors and their customers.”

To use, professionals enter project details within the Project Bids feature in the S-W PRO mobile app, including but not limited to client information, what interior and/or exterior areas are being painted and what type of coating will be used.
