Mannington Commercial has developed Apt – an app for iPads aimed at the design, specification and client presentation process.
“Despite the increasing popularity among A+D and end users of using tablets for both product research and client presentations, there are very few tablet apps that serve the interior design process,” said Natalie Jones, Vice President for Brand Development and Creative Product. “Apt serves as a research and inspiration tool as well as client presentation resource, bringing several major functions together in a unified, simple, beautiful interface.”
The tablet application allows architects, interior designers and end users to see a manufacturer’s complete line of products, order samples, reference all technical literature for all products, and create and email multiple design boards to clients.
The app makes it easy for users to search products across Mannington Commercial’s broad portfolio of flooring choices – from carpet to resilient sheet, LVT to rubber, and more, according to the company. It also helps users search for coordinating products across the whole product portfolio, view an inspiration gallery of projects, easily access designer and end user videos, order samples and research technical and installation specs.
The app also includes a tack board, where coordinating products can be viewed together. An image of the tackboard can be emailed to clients or collaborators, or a sample of every product on the board can be ordered with a single click. Users can even create presentations showing gallery images for inspiration and reference, coordinating products and more, and email a PDF of these presentations to collaborators or clients.
Apt is available today, by searching for "Mannington" or "Apt" in the iPad App Store.
