THE RAPCOHORIZON COMPANY UNVEILS DESIGNVISION

New Software Tool Enables Dealers, Contractors and Systems Integrators to Create Professional Drawings of Custom Panels and More

ORLANDO, FL, JUNE 15, 2011 ― The RapcoHorizon Company, a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, introduces DesignVision, a panel design program created specifically for the company’s network of professional systems integrators, dealers and contractors, at InfoComm 2011 (Booth 775). The new software allows The RapcoHorizon Company’s professional network to create expert quality custom installation diagrams, which can be saved and edited based on user specifications.

DesignVision features a simple interface that enables industry professionals with no computer aided design (CAD) experience to create CAD-like setups of custom rack panels, wall plates and floor pocket inserts. The intuitive system speeds up the quoting process and can be downloaded to run locally on any Windows computer, which enables laptop users to access the software from anywhere – including on-site client meetings.

“With the fast-paced and competitive world we now live in, our systems integrators, dealers and contractors are always looking for ways to have an edge over the competition,? says Darius Seabaugh, vice president of marketing for The RapcoHorizon Company. “The DesignVision software not only provides these professionals with the power of speed but it also ensures expert quality designs. All this, wrapped neatly in one easy-to-use, downloadable interface.?
To create a system design, a user simply selects the preferred panel and utilizes the drag and drop feature to place the desired connectors directly on the panel. By using a basic set of design tools, the user can even create a template for engraving.

When the drawing is complete, the dealer can email a PDF and a completely accurate price quote to the client for approval. Once approved, the integrator can email the same design with its full bill of materials to their RapcoHorizon sales representative. This ensures an expedited distribution of the custom panel to the user.

“Now, users can receive fast, accurate quotes with just the click of a button,? continues Seabaugh. “This will reduce ambiguity and will therefore decrease the customer’s wait time for an order.?

The RapcoHorizon Company’s DesignVision software will be available for free download at www.rapcohorizon.com. Users will be required to have a unique login and password, which can be obtained from their RapcoHorizon representative.
