LaunchDM recently completed production of a native iPad app design for C.H. Briggs Company, one of the largest independently-owned distributors of specialty building materials on the east coast.
The iPad app works as a sales aid for the C.H. Briggs sales team, syncing with and pulling assets dynamically from their Salesforce.com Content library. The app can also sync with other data objects, such as Salesforce accounts, contacts, opportunities and cases. A system administrator can easily update the content via their Salesforce cloud application, from any web connection and, once their iPads are synced, each member of the sales team will have the freshest and most consistent content on their iPad for customer visits and detailed product overviews. Product orders can actually be placed directly from the C.H. Briggs app before the salesperson even exits their customer’s office.
According to Rob Wolf, LaunchDM’s Creator and Sr. Managing Partner, “We could have engineered this mobile app to pull content from almost any database. C.H. Briggs was thoroughly engaged with Salesforce.com which made the mobile Salesforce application a no-brainer. Within minutes, the Briggs team was trained on how to edit and update content and sync to the new app.”
All user interface (UI) and aesthetic design of the C.H. Briggs iPad app was executed by LaunchDM while all app functionality was engineered and programmed by Model Metrics – top iPad app developers and leading cloud computing services providers headquartered in Chicago, IL.
