A mobile business app created by JPL for a leading commercial construction company was recently honored with a bronze Creativity Award for top business app.
The Carlisle Construction Materials Proposal Writer provides a mobile solution to estimators to expedite and improve the process of estimating roof repairs. Instead of taking several hours to estimate a job by taking measurements and photos to cost out repairs, estimators use the new mobile app to deliver a high quality proposal to customers right from the rooftop.
Estimators use the proposal writer app on their iPads or Android tablets to draw on top of satellite images to denote sections of the roof that need to be repaired or replaced. Photos of rooftop deficiencies can be taken on the tablet from within the app so that the proposal shows facility owners the documented issues. The proposal writer app also enables the sales rep to generate a custom cover letter and preview the proposal before sending it to a customer.
The Creativity International Awards is one of the longest running, independent advertising and graphic design competitions in the world.
