(ALPHARETTA, GA —June 24, 2014) Neenah now offers a faster way to find the right paper with its release today of Neenah’s desktop Mac app, CabinetTM, and coordinating mobile versions for all the ways designers work—at the office, at home, at meetings, on the road. All versions are free, and available now.
With Neenah Cabinet, users can browse, search, view and compare paper for print projects whenever or wherever they work—on the Desktop, iPad, iPhone or Android. The new OS X version downloads fast. Because Cabinet automatically updates itself, users know they always have the right information, right at their fingertips.
The new Cabinet features an improved and more intuitive user experience, scalable chrome, and significant performance enhancements with OS X. “These were built to help the designer save time, find the right paper faster, and know that the paper selected is a paper Neenah manufactures. There’s no more guess work,” said Tom Wright, director of advertising and design.
Neenah Cabinet for OS X has been developed over the past year using the simplified thinking that came with the update of our iPhone for iOS 7 app. This new desktop version has undergone extensive testing and user research. Neenah Cabinet was the industry’s first paper app developed especially for graphic designers to make it easier to specify Neenah papers. The original app and this total redesign were both designed in collaboration with And Partners, New York.
“The new Neenah Cabinet OS X has evolved beautifully, now for all of the ways designers work, whether it’s at their Desktop, on an iPad or on a smart phone,” said Wright. “This is the Desktop evolved.”
First-time Cabinet users will enjoy instant access to view papers and envelopes numbering in the tens of thousands within the Neenah family. Current users will appreciate the more intuitive entry points into Neenah products and services. A new global search feature to enhance productivity enables users to filter or search by product. New action buttons and contextual drop downs make for a simpler, cleaner, more intuitive user experience.
Cabinet is a virtual library of paper samples. Designers can view how they think: by paper grade, texture, color, weight, etc. Print demonstrations and swatchbooks are available with a single click from Cabinet through neenahpaper.com. Users can handily test design ideas and concepts by ordering Neenah’s unique Personal Proof® on the paper or papers of their choice to share with their clients or to imagine creative possibilities.
“With designers spending so much time working online, whether on the desktop or on the road, they need to be able to access Neenah digitally—anywhere, anytime. “Neenah Cabinet is now truly a unified ecosystem,” said Wright. He noted that the new Cabinet will soon include Neenah’s growing Packaging and Label Solutions.
