The Building Systems business of BASF has released a Flooring Installation Solution Application for use with BlackBerry smart phones. The application is designed to bring immediate, accurate answers to flooring installers on the job site, where computer access and reference materials may not be readily available.
The tool allows users to find product information, locate a BASF distributor, calculate flooring needs, and utilize the Flooring Wizard to select the appropriate product. The “Get Product Info” function provides customers with instant access to product data sheets, MSDS information and LEED product information letters. When a state is selected in “Find a Distributor,” the program provides a list of local BASF distributors along with contact information. Users can call or e-mail the distributor directly from the application. The Flooring Calculator allows for square foot, square yard, pitch and metric measurements, to help you calculate product needs instantly.
The Flooring Wizard recommends a BASF product solution based on a short series of questions. The Wizard will ask questions regarding substrate and product needs and make a recommendation based on the user’s answers. From the product page, users can obtain product literature.
