JOPLIN, Mo. – October 10, 2012 –TAMKO Building Products introduces the Decking Styles app – a specialized interactive tool designed with the contractor and customer in mind. The Decking Styles app will enable users to learn about TAMKO’s composite decking and railing products as well as visualize the products in various applications.
Decking Styles will offer new and unique features such as the Deck Viewer featuring the different styles and colors of TAMKO’s decking and railing products. Users now have the convenience of a product swatch and prototype right at their fingertips instead of having to speculate what the products will look like.
Decking Styles also introduces a feature called “Sketch-a-deck.” This will allow contractors to give a custom drawing to customers on the spot. Contractors can provide better, faster service by not having to go back to the office to scan and send a drawing. It also allows the user to save sketches of a deck to refer back to later.
The Decking Styles app includes some of the same useful features that already appear in TAMKO’s successful Shingle Styles app including product line information for decking and railing, product photos and swatches, and a contractor locator.
Decking Styles for the iPad once again brings together the resources and functionality of tamko.com while capitalizing on the high-definition graphics and touch screen features of the iPad to give users the best possible experience.
“We are excited to continue to offer new, cutting-edge resources to contractors and customers, “says Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Stephen McNally. “The Decking Styles app is just another example of how TAMKO is committed to quality and convenience.”
The new Decking Styles app is available for free download from the App Store on iPad, at www.itunes.com/appstore. Search for TAMKO or find it under the “Lifestyle” category.
