LBMAO Directory Now Available As App

The Lumber and Building Materials Association of Ontario (LBMAO) has rolled out an app to replace its annual printed directory. Early in the year, the board of directors commissioned a search for a developer to produce a customized app to replace the current printed directory. The app directory was designed to meet the needs of members and the same data that was available in the directory has been transferred to the app including products, contacts, and locations. The app is downloaded onto a mobile device – either Android or iPhone – and will be updated on an ongoing basis. Search engines are incorporated in the app to look up companies, contacts, and products while Google Maps will pinpoint company locations for navigation. Each member business listed in the app directory will have a link to its website to promote products and services. The app is private and can only be accessed by an individualized code that is issued to each member upon renewal of their membership. Additional codes can be purchased for sales representatives or other staff members.
