Chameleon Success Stories!

Some of the input we’ve recently received from the people using our Software:

“I love this tool. I am having my roof replaced and my roofer gave me your samples. This is so awesome as to actually see the house with the roof, opposed to trying to visualize what it would look like. I would have been very disappointed with the color that I chose before using this tool. Thank you so much !!!”

IKO Announces Release of RoofViewer App for Android Platform

Company aims to make choosing the right shingle easy for homeowners on any mobile device

December 19, 2014

KANKAKEE, IL – IKO Industries, Ltd, a global manufacturer of asphalt shingles and related roofing materials for the residential and commercial roofing industry, has introduced its latest app. The company’s popular RoofViewer software tool is now available as a free download from the Google Play™ store.

Director of Marketing, Carol Perkins, explains the history of RoofViewer and its evolution into this latest version.

“Several years ago, IKO was first to market with our proprietary RoofViewer software tool. At the time, it was only available through a desktop computer. At the time, mobile devices were not in widespread use. Today, almost everyone is accessing programs and apps on the fly.”

She says that IKO’s market research revealed the toughest decision facing homeowners was choosing the right style and color of shingle.

RoofViewer solved that problem by allowing them to shingle their homes virtually, online. They could choose from a standard template similar to their house or upload a photo of their actual home. RoofViewer even allowed them to “try on” different accessories, such as siding and trim.

“RoofViewer was a big hit both with homeowners and with the contractors we serve,” she continues. “In January 2013, we released an app designed to be used on an Apple® iPad®. It was an enhanced version of our desktop software tool because it also allowed users to map out the roof and select all the components of IKO’s Pro 4 Roofing System: shingles, roof starter, underlayment, ice & water protector and hip & ridge cap shingles.”

The Android version of RoofViewer takes the app to a whole new level of functionality by driving qualified leads to reputable contractors. They’ll be able to save all the information as reference, to create a price quote.

Ms. Perkins says, “This will be faster and more convenient than having to transfer the data by hand and deal with more paper. Roofing professionals are busy, always on the move. They’re sure to enjoy having remote access to prospects’ contact info and selected products.”

Chameleon Power, a leader in software technologies for the roofing and building industries, provided the suite of RoofViewer tools. CEO Dan Dempsey says, “IKO has continued to lead the roofing industry with innovative solutions for its roofers and homeowners. We’re thrilled to work closely with such an innovative organization in bringing our technologies to the roofing industry.”

TheRoofViewer app is now available as a free download at the Google Play Store online store or at the IKO website: http://www.iko.com.
