Deckorators® Launches ‘Pro on the Go’ App
Mobile app and new Pro Site enhance Deckorators Certified Pro program for contractors
For Immediate Release
Grand Rapids, Mich., January 25, 2018 – Deckorators®, a leading brand of Universal Forest Products, Inc. (Nasdaq: UFPI), has introduced the “Pro on the Go” mobile application for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. The app makes it easier for Certified Pro contractors to reap the benefits of the certification program.
Available for free from iTunes and Google Play, the app helps Certified Pros easily submit deck project invoices, manage rewards points and receive alerts on new Deckorators products, events and promotions. Certified Pros can also quickly update their Pro profiles, access product information and contact Deckorators customer service through the app.
“We designed the “Pro on the Go” app with the needs of today’s deck builder in mind,” said Chris Camfferman, director of category marketing for Deckorators. “The app is the perfect way for Certified Pros who are busy and on the move to stay connected to our program — and get benefits that grow their business.”
“Pro on the Go” complements the revamped Deckorators Pro Site at pro.deckorators.com, which features an all-new rewards management page. The rewards page helps certified contractors easily submit invoices and track and redeem rewards points. Certified Pros can earn a potential 5 percent in rewards on their entire Deckorators purchase, and a simplified reward points system offers pros $1 in redeemable cash value for each reward point earned.
The Certified Pro Program is designed to help contractors increase opportunities and drive deck sales and installation services by aligning with the leading brand in composite decking, railing, balusters, post caps and related products.
Deckorators continues to enhance the program to better serve Certified Pros. Last year, the brand introduced the Deckorators Pro Summit, an all-inclusive trip for top point-earning members. Scheduled for February 2018, the inaugural Summit will feature education and leisure at Bahia Mar Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
