With a creative streak that rivals Frank Zappa and Andy Warhol, the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based custom speaker manufacturer Leon Speakers is finding unique ways to support its authorized dealer network.

The company’s newly announced “Picture Perfect Sound” app is engineered to support its dealers, as well as architects and interior designers, to choose the right Leon product for each individual job they are on. Ethan Kaplan, marketing director, Leon Speakers, points out the company invested considerable resources into the development of this app to ensure dealers could maximize their experience with the product.

“We’ve been working with some of our core integrators over the past 12 months to learn more about their processes, the various sales tools they have access to and what we could do to make their jobs easier,” he explains. “With this app it’s as close as we can come to being there with them on location to help specify products and offer the appropriate solutions. With our products it is important to be able to show customers and their designers exactly what a custom speaker can be. This app is loaded with case studies, images and tools to help visualize our solutions. I’m excited to see how people use it to help guide the next version.”

Leon’s new app is available on Apple iTunes App Store for free. Its features include options such as “My Projects” that provide an interactive way to specify the company’s products. Dealers on a job site can take a picture of the room, tap the image to create a tag, and then add the company’s products to the image to visually represent an installation. Comments can be added to spell out preferences such as size or color, and the information can be saved for offsite access.

In addition, Leon Speakers says that through the app’s file sharing capabilities, installers can email project details, including spec sheets photos and notes to customers, their designers, their purchasing personnel, and Leon Speaker sales reps.
