QUAKERTOWN, PA—The North American Deck & Railing Association (NADRA) has partnered with VisionScape Interactive, LLC. to support and grow the outdoor living industry. Through this ongoing relationship, NADRA and VisionScape strive to unify the outdoor living community by providing NADRA’s professional, dealer, retailer and manufacturer members highly effective 3D design, presentation, sales and marketing tools.

 

The heart of this growing partnership lies in VisionScape’s 3D design and visualization software, Virtual Property Architect™, which allows for the creation of lifelike 3D designs and detailed 2D plans that can be saved as interactive, online sales presentations for the consumer.

 

“When a consumer can experience exactly how a finished project will look and feel right in their own backyard, and in advance of construction, we see more frequent and larger sales”, observes VisionScape Founder and CEO John Porco. “We have partnered with NADRA to equip the industry with the tools it needs to provide consumers this experience and increase the number of outdoor living projects completed each year.”

 

VisionScape 3D designs are created from an ever-expanding 3D catalogue of actual products and brands from throughout the industry. Easy-to-use smart tools allow software users to create true-to-life designs with just a few clicks and no previous experience required. The designs can be shared online with vivid screenshots, walkthrough videos, images and the 2D plan to create an immersive customer experience.

 

“The exciting products and technologies available today in decking, railing, fencing, landscaping, patio pavers, pool and spa as well as landscape lighting, now have the ability to come alive with a simple point and click,” explains NADRA Executive Vice President Michael Beaudry. “This partnership not only enables our members to provide a superior customer experience, it also unifies each segment of the outdoor living industry.”

 

“NADRA is extremely excited about the partnership with VisionScape”, says Bill Ross, NADRA President “VisionScape is a robust, best-in-class software, with a super quick learning curve, that allows builders to visualize the entire backyard environment for the consumer so that the builder’s creative vision can be seen in its fullness. Participating NADRA members can expect a differentiating competitive advantage, realize a significant increase in sales closing rates and gain access to new streams of revenue.”

 

As part of this relationship, NADRA will utilize VisionScape’s technology to support the industry with the tools to succeed including, but not limited to, a 3D design gallery to be presented on NADRA.org, exclusive VisionScape webinars and training for NADRA contractors and dealers as well as exclusive manufacturer programs. Additional information about these tools and offerings will be announced throughout the spring 2013 season.
