Guardian App Helps Bring Products and Projects to Architects “On the Go”November 21st, 2011 | Category: Industry News
The SunGuard mobile app is one of the latest developments from Guardian Industries. Designed for use in iPhones, Android devices and iPads, the app is available in Apple’s Store and Google’s Android Market by searching for Guardian SunGuard. The new app allows users to browse and interact with hundreds of projects worldwide, while the Guardian sales team, partners and customers can access and view all the possibilities that SunGuard glass offers, from anywhere around the world.
“The new SunGuard app allows users to explore and learn more about SunGuard products and projects while on the go, and will be a great tool for our sales team to use while visiting architects and customers,” says Chris Dolan, Guardian’s director of commercial glass marketing. “We’re already getting good reviews from early users of the app.”
Utilizing smart phone GPS capabilities and a robust photo gallery, users can locate buildings that use SunGuard products nearby, or around the world. The app, created by a cross-team partnership at Guardian and Curve Detroit, provides project details including the SunGuard products used, performance data, a project photo, the architectural firm, glazier, fabricator and more. Users can browse images and double tap on a photo to see details about the project, and even use the map function for walking or driving directions to a project.
“One of the main ideas behind our new app was to give people real-life examples of how SunGuard products look and perform in the field,” Dolan says. “Our customers and business partners are most interested in the appearance of a project and the performance of the glass. The SunGuard app delivers both via a mobile medium.”
Dolan adds, “Increasingly, our customers – most people, in fact – use their smart phones and iPads in the same way they’ve used laptops or desktop computers. We’ve taken the information our customers are most interested in and provided it in a format that will meet their needs.”
