Product Information Tools

We built an interactive mobile app to help Guardian representatives gather product information and improve sales. The mobile app–SunGuard–explains the different types of glass coatings that Guardian offers. This information helps users better understand how their products are used, marketed and sold.

Interactive Mapping

Guardian has an impressive global portfolio, so our team built an interactive map that allows users to see where Guardian Glass is installed throughout the world. Users can click on any portfolio option to learn what types of coating, colors, and products were applied. This tool allows users to learn about the different types of glass Guardian manufactures and how they are applied to meet each customer's needs.

Long-Term Commitment

After launching the SunGuard mobile app, Gravity Works continued to work with Guardian on a number of small projects. We revamped an older mobile app–Window Insight–that was used to help the sales team distinguish between glass types. We recreated a series of LMS training videos for factory line workers. We also developed a variety of features for their public-facing website. Our team believes in establishing long-term relationships with our clients, helping their web presence grow alongside their business.

Investing in Our Client's Success

Guardian worked closely with our staff throughout the entire course of these projects. We participated in daily status calls with the IT team and other tech partners to ensure that our projects were moving in the right direction. Our team also provided tech strategy and consultation to help Guardian prepare for the future of web and mobile management.
