June 5, 2012: Delmar and DEWALT Introduce Mobile App for Construction Professionals

June 5, 2012
CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Delmar, part of Cengage Learning, and DEWALT announced the launch of DEWALT® Mobile Pro™, a new mobile app for construction professionals. The companies said Mobile Pro is specifically for contractors and tradesmen in the construction industry, with a number of free features and ways to customize the app based on each user’s trade focus. The app is available for the iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPad® and has been designed with custom interfaces to suit the various screen sizes of each device.

The Mobile Pro app is available as a free download and includes a construction calculator for solving complex jobsite math in the field, and five basic calculations with integrated reference materials to offer help, examples, and illustrations. The app also provides a running history of recent calculations, a customizable list of favorite calculations for quick access to those used most often, and the ability to email calculation results.

The app was designed with a customization option that includes trade-specific calculations and formulas. Once the app has been downloaded, the user will have the ability to add-on calculations and corresponding reference materials unique to a specific trade. The companies said the add-ons will be available for a low price in the areas of HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and more.

“We have partnered with DEWALT on a wide array of reference and training products, but the creation of this mobile app has evolved our relationship to a new level of creativity and innovation,” said Greg Clayton, vice president, Delmar. “This app will offer immediate results for hundreds of difficult construction calculations along with valuable reference content and many other convenient features. We aim to provide the highest quality product available, at a cost that will make it easily attainable for our customers — which is why DEWALT Mobile Pro will provide an abundance of free content, valued at over $30, and many additional low-priced, trade-specific add-ons.”
