STOW, Ohio – October 23, 2013 – MACtac® Distributor Products has debuted the wide-format industry’s first mobile tablet application designed specifically to help wide-format printing professionals and their customers specify the right pressure-sensitive print media for their graphics applications. Called DesignScape3D™, the app is a 24/7 graphics application consultant. Read More

DesignScape 3D is built around common graphic applications and the settings in which they occur. The basic navigation of DesignScape 3D provides visual detail about where wide-format graphic products are used in the real-world, allowing a user to choose one of six 3D environments that each feature two or more views and rotating icons highlighting the many different pressure-sensitive graphic applications characteristic of each environment. This allows a user to see not only a specific application that might interest them, but also additional installation ideas or opportunities for sales.
For each application, DesignScape 3D not only suggests products, but provides technical data, tips, collateral, and laminate recommendations. Users can also easily request product samples and additional literature with a tap of the screen, and they can easily email links to product literature in case a customer would like more information. In the event that a wireless connection is not available, the email will simply queue and send when Internet access is available.

“We developed DesignScape 3D to make it as easy and intuitive as possible for wide-format printers and sales people to find the right product for nearly any application,” explains Mary Ann Kucera, market manager, MACtac. “The application is available to download today on tablets running iOS, and Android operating systems, with a Windows system available soon, so users can immediately begin educating, specifying and selling more effectively no matter what their mobile device preference.”
