Interactive Design Guides Available from American Standard Brands

Sep 18, 2012

PISCATAWAY, N.J.(September 18, 2012)— Navigating kitchen and bath design choices just became a whole lot easier, thanks to two new interactive “brochures” from American Standard Brands: the JADO/Porcher Design Guide and American Standard Designer's Portfolio. Available at, these new design guides were created to improve the selling experience in showrooms for designers, dealers, and customers alike.

Designers can walk customers through the showroom with a mobile device such as a tablet or iPad displaying the digital catalog. There users can connect to informative online videos — that play directly within the brochure — to guide them through features and benefits of particular product lines. Viewers can also click on various product images in the interactive brochures and be directed to a detailed information page offering required components, product specifications, and links to related products.

Both interactive design guides give designers and showroom staff easy access to important product details, saving them the time and effort it takes to look up information in hard copies of catalogs. Searching is streamlined across all American Standard Brands websites to quickly connect readers to their desired content.

Users can bookmark and add notes to their favorite products. All content in the interactive design guides can be shared across social networking sites including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and blogs. Thoughtful design advice is also included throughout the guides for inspiration and assistance with planning.

Both design guides are also available as a PDF download; plus printed copies can be sent via mail, upon request.
