Owens Corning recently introduced ProSell, a digital app designed to streamline and expedite the residential roofing sales process, from sales pitch all the way to order processing. Available to all Owens Corning Roofing Contractor Network (OCCN) members in the iOS App Store, ProSell is a seamless, step-by-step resource that spans ev- ery phase of the residential roof sales process. The app was developed using Leap, a digital platform that simplifies and automates the home service sales process including estimating, financing and contracting, as well as real-time communication. ProSell includes a digital pitch book along with comprehensive product data to support efficient and accurate estimating. Once homeowners select products, the app generates an on-site estimate supported by EagleView and Hover. ProSell can also support financing integrations and execute the contract with credit card and eCheck processing, Schumacher says. "For companies signing up for the ProSell app by April 1, 2019, Owens Corning will waive the $500 one-time set-up fee and monthly $35 per-user license fee for one year," he continues. "An optional upgrade is available that provides ex- tended benefits. The introduction of the ProSell app [has expanded] Owens Corning's portfolio of digital contractor tools. In 2018, Owens Corning introduced the OC Connect Resource Center, a redesigned web portal and one-stop resource for OCCN members to access tools that help support and grow their business." "Sustainability is at the core of our product de- sign," says Jim Fagan, president/CEO. "We strive to include innovative technologies that improve our environment in all aspects of our operations. Professional Process Owens Corning engineers TruDefinition Duration FLEX—its most advanced shingle ever—so that the product delivers enhanced flexibility and ex- cellent performance in harsh weather conditions compared with standard shingles, says Scott Schumacher, director of marketing. It acts as a good example of how to integrate performance in shingle design and construction, he adds. Made with a proprietary blend of SBS polymer modified asphalt, the shingles feature SureNail Technology and provide the highest impact rating available: UL 2218 Class 4. Duration FLEX also offers 42 percent better nail-pull resistance against wind compared with standard shingles, Schumacher notes. Built-in flexibility helps the shingles resist cracks and tears in all-weather installation con- ditions, bestowing more than 10 percent stronger tear-strength compared with traditional shingles. "Duration FLEX shingles are also manufac- tured for efficient installation and are formulated to lay flat more quickly than standard shingles for a clean, finished look," he explains. "The rubber-like flexibility that helps the shingle withstand expan- sion and contraction stresses also helps minimize loss of granules and helps protect the shingle against UV rays." OWENS CORNING Duration FLEX shingles deliver an enhanced flexibility and superior performance in harsh conditions, says Scott Schumacher, director of marketing.
