ZOOMcatalog LAUNCHES MOBILE APP
The first product research app in the promotional products marketplace allows users to easily browse, search and share digital ZOOMcatalogs from their mobile devices.
BOULDER, COLORADO (February 4, 2011) – ZOOMcatalog has launched the official ZOOMcatalog App for the Android as well as iPhone, iPad and iPod. A first for the promotional products industry, this product research app allows users to easily browse, search and share digital ZOOMcatalogs from their mobile devices.
While the ZOOMcatalog website is fully operational on mobile browsers, the app optimizes viewing for the smaller screen. Rather than opening a browser to search, users can access the high-resolution digital catalogs with one tap.
The app’s functionality allows users to:
- Navigate in real time through thousands of supplier catalogs by keyword or key phrase
- Search all catalogs at once or search within a particular supplier catalog to locate products
- Find specific catalogs from favorite suppliers
- Identify suppliers of a specific line or brand name product
- Compare results and jump to pages of interest
- E-mail high-resolution catalog pages to customers and colleagues
ZOOMcatalog distributor members receive even more benefits. They can log in for quick links to a supplier directory that includes complete contact information, from which they have the ability to tap the phone number and automatically make the call. Additionally, they can access the members-only coupons and special offers. And they can turn their phone or tablet into a coded calculator, making it quick and easy to determine pricing and mark-up on the go.
As new suppliers join ZOOMcatalog, the application is automatically updated so distributors are continually up-to-date. And since ZOOMcatalogs are designed with all sensitive information in a password-protected area, distributors can encourage their end-buyer clients to download and use the app themselves, giving them a research tool right at their fingertips—all the while being certain that pricing details remain confidential.
“Today’s promotional products buyers are more sophisticated than ever, and they expect their marketing partners to embrace technology as they have,” said Bryony Zasman, ZOOMcatalog vice president. “We created the ZOOMcatalog App—the first product research app in the promotional products marketplace—to adapt to the changes in the way people are doing business by providing a more mobile way to access products virtually everywhere. This eliminates the age-old practice of lugging print catalogs to sales meetings and allows distributors to serve their clients more efficiently, effectively and professionally.”
The app is attractively priced at $4.99, which includes all future tools and updates, and it can be found by searching for ZOOMcatalog in the Android Marketplace or in the Apple App Store.
