Centiva has launched its Centiva First Step iPhone and iPad application. The app, which can be downloaded immediately from the Apple iTunes store, is designed to present the company's portfolio of products in a way that will help designers and architects streamline the specification process.

“The iPhone and iPad apps are the latest steps in our plans to pair the creativity inherent in our products with new technologies that make the specification and selection process easier,” remarked Thomas Trissl, Centiva’s president. “The early testing and customer feedback with our iPad app were so strong, that we sped up the launch of the iPhone app to have both apps available at NeoCon.”

Centiva First Step for the iPhone puts the same functionality of the Centiva iPad app into the hands of designers, architects, and flooring specifiers. iPhone and iPad users can search and review flooring products, share their selections with colleagues, and order product samples immediately using the new apps. Supporting technical information for each product is fully accessible within the app as well.

“Our objective is to support our customer’s work making it easy to review products, get information, and order samples,” noted Leigh Wright, Centiva’s sr. designer. “The new applications put all of our sample books, technical information, and sample ordering process into the hands of iPad and iPhone users.”

“The new apps are one more example of the ways Centiva has developed new technology for use in our production processes as well as our customer experience platform,” added Erin Dempsey, Centiva’s head of public relations – environment & strategy. “The new apps streamline the specification process, helping customers to select and order just the samples that they need and do so quickly.”
