H.B. Fuller is an international manufacturer of innovative industrial adhesives, sealants, coatings, and specialty materials. Their subsidiary, TEC, had an existing Coverage Calculator on their website. This tool allowed their customers to calculate the estimated amount of surface preparation products, mortars, and grouts necessary for a tile installation project. They wanted to enhance the experience by providing a mobile platform for contractors on the go. The Coverage Calculator used on the web needed to be tailored to a mobile experience and required some additional functionality to make it more user friendly.
Mindgrub provided user experience consulting, along with web and mobile development, to create a comprehensive feel between both web and mobile. We moved the existing logic of the web Coverage Calculator to a mobile environment that provided step-by-step input screens for the user. The Coverage Calculator offers contractors detailed, specified metrics. Project specifications can be output in a variety of measurements to measure the volume or quantity of products – such as pounds, gallons, bags, or pails. A contractor can also save their jobs to access later in the “My Saved Jobs” section on the app.
The app also easily links contractors to specific TEC product pages relevant to their job requirements, and allows them to find a sales rep in their area. The home screen of the app gives users the opportunity to watch TEC’s YouTube channel and visit their website. A contact screen provides clickable phone numbers and email options for fast and easy communication.
