Beacon launched its new Beacon PRO+ mobile app, custom-designed for iPhone and Android devices. The new app is tailored to meet the needs of contractors who spend their days on the go, according to Beacon.

“We are always working to improve our digital platforms,” Jonathan Bennett, Beacon’s chief commercial officer, said in a prepared statement. “We live in a mobile world, so we wanted to improve contractors’ mobile capabilities. We know our customers are not sitting at a desk all day. The new Beacon PRO+ app was custom designed, leveraging customer insights and advanced technology to help contractors work more efficiently and enhance their businesses.”

With the new app, contractors can streamline everyday tasks and manage multiple projects with quick access to the information they most need, according to Beacon. The app features a full product catalog with images, specifications, and supporting documentation, as well as simple designs for on-the-go ordering. Contractors will also be able to look up their order history, track and view deliveries, edit order templates, and find nearby Beacon branch locations. Additionally, users will have the option to receive delivery tracking notifications.

Herndon, Va.-based Beacon distributes roofing materials and complementary building products. The company operates over 500 branches throughout all 50 U.S. states and six Canadian provinces.
