The MACO AR App developed over the course of a year in the lead up to FiT 2014 really has started to change the way in which we look at the world of door locks. We are also incredibly proud to announce that it is also finalist for a very prestigious technology award!
The App is downloadable from the Apple App store or for Android users, Google Play store with Windows 8 users now included.
The whole thinking behind the App was along the lines of ‘How do we help our Fabricators and Installers grow their business?’ Educating the homeowner came up time and time again. Rather than just choosing a gorgeous colour door with matching handles, how to we get them to think properly about what’s going on inside the door, what makes it secure, weather tight, how can they ensure it lasts a lifetime and is still operating trouble free for years to come. How do we guarantee that the products used are approved by their home insurance companies and that they have Police Approved hardware for additional peace of mind and how do we begin to create brand loyalty, how do we get them to come back for more or recommend the installer to others?
We want you to get as excited as us with regards to the possibilities the AR App opens up. Every MACO user is encouraged to download and use it as much as possible. Imagine taking this handy tool into the homeowner and leaving it with them to explore whilst carrying out the survey. Let them view the 3D graphics, watch the HD videos and read the news on this simple to use App. Encourage them to download it too so that they can view again at their leisure, perhaps showing friends and relatives which in turn could mean more business through recommendations.
Used alongside current sales aids we see this MACO AR App as a powerful tool. Not forgetting that this smart App also allows you to download and replay the content on own showroom media or at trade counters.
In fact due to its growing supporters so far, MACO has just reordered another 3 pallets of presentation boxes to distribute to anyone wanting to use the App within their business.
We already see our Distributor partners issuing copies to their sales teams to show the features and benefits of our locks. We have Fabricators using the content in their showrooms and we have Installers using it alongside the MACO Secure Plus scheme to sell the benefits of our products within their installations.
‘’I know that many months were spent on the creation of the app, especially all those 3D features, and it is clear to see that hard work. Is it useful and is it worth including in future demonstrations? Yes. It serves a purpose and it is that which makes anything in this world valuable, having a purpose. Hats off to the guys at MACO who worked on this, it’s a great effort!’’ – GlazingBlogger
Feedback has been very encouraging and so positive that we are already working on the next chapter for the MACO AR App.
