AVAD Mobile iOS App Updated to Better Connect Integrators with AV Solutions

Custom application offers integrators on-the-go access to AVAD products and value-added tools to make system design more convenient

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – December 18, 2013 AVAD LLC, North America’s leading provider of custom electronics, recently launched updates to its popular smartphone application AVAD Mobile. The new version, available for free in the Apple® iTunes® app store, provides custom integrators with convenient, portable solutions for accessing the distributor’s vast portfolio of residential and commercial AV products.

AVAD Mobile version 1.06 features improvements that enhance user friendly features that custom integrators require along with new developments that take advantage of recent iOS improvements. Users can now search by full or partial manufacturer number as well as other product information for increased accessibility of seeking out the right products. This version also has the ability to search from the Brands, Promotions and Quick Order/Cart pages, including a full catalog search across all product categories.

To simplify the ordering process, integrators can now add items to their shopping cart simply by entering full or partial manufacturer name, manufacturer number or other common key words. AVAD expects that this feature will be increasingly useful to custom installers that often look up parts and place orders directly from their customers’ job sites.

AVAD Mobile provides dealersthroughout the U.S. with instant access to AVAD products, vendors, promotions and training opportunities. Customers can log into the app with their existing AVAD website login credentials to access account details as well as order history and featured product lines. The fully transactional app makes ordering easy by giving dealers the ability to search products by brand, product category or full text search.

AVAD Mobile also brings integrators real-time news updates, product availability, special events and the AVAD social media network, making it convenient for them to remain up to date on the job site or wherever their work takes them. The informative app menu also incorporates quick links to AVAD Rewards, AVAD System Design Group and the user’s account profile.

AVAD Mobile is available now for free download from the Apple iTunes app store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/avad-mobile/id695918310?mt=8.
