From Kitchen Sinks to 18 Wheelers—Mobile Sales Tools

Books and magazines may be the first things that come to mind when you think about reading on your iPad or Android tablet.  But, there are many other types of products that fit this medium well and, if designed professionally, reach a broader audience than traditional communications.

Big Truck Sales Teams Travel  Lightly

mag+volvotruckCompanies with large sales forces are using mobile presentations to reach people who want to view items close up but

are not within meeting distance geographically. Especially for complex and technical products, having an in depth sales presentation tool with interactive diagrams, video, and reference materials, allows a prospective client to dig in to details at their own time and pace.  Take a look  at an example of a sales presentation for Volvo FH, created with Mag+.

Look What’s Cooking!

The realism and action-packed response built into this Restaurant Solutions app makes shopping for restaurant equipment more like a game, but still practical.  As you click on products resting on gleaming stainless steel commercial countertops, information about products immediately pop into view.  This app combines traditional layout techniques with HTML, sweeping the reader from room to room showing off every type of kitchen product. San Jamar, a top provider of restaurant products, also used the Mag+ platform to provide a mobile digital brochure for their sales team.Screen Shot 2015-01-23 at 3.54.37 PM

OmniStudio has been working with Mag+ and other app publishing tools to help customers re-imagine their communications— especially traditional print publications—to new digital formats.

Want to Know More?

In the coming months we’ll be showing you other types of publishing products that are taking advantage of mobile app technology.  If you have a product you’d like us to explore with you, feel free to contact me.

From InDesign to the App Store

Hands On Look At Creating a Publication App

If you are involved in the design or technical production of publications and other communications media, you won’t want to miss this morning workshop—From InDesign to the App Store.

 

OmniStudio’s Art Director, Kathy Foltin, will walk provide a detailed demo for creating apps, including:

 

• setting up your app storefront

• a review of the resources you need to produce a successful app

• working with software platforms

• design and production techniques

• when HTML comes into play in app development

• and much more!

 

Our focus will be on digital platform tools Mag+ and Yudu. These software systems are alternatives to Adobe’s DTP system. We have found that these tools provide a more affordable path from InDesign to application launch and maintenance.
