National Roofing Contractors Association Launches App
Rosemont, Ill. — The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is announcing the launch of the NRCA app designed to give members the flexibility to access industry information and the most updated versions of NRCA's most popular technical publications on their tablets and desktop computers.
The app, which will launch at the 2015 International Roofing Expo,® is free to all NRCA members and includes nine of NRCA's most popular technical publications, including the 2015 volume of The NRCA Roofing Manual, estimated to be valued at $1,300.
To ensure members have the most up-to-date information, publications will be continually updated with the newest versions, which will appear on the app automatically.
In addition, all electronic versions of NRCA publications will be available at no charge to members in the NRCA Bookstore. Members who do not have tablets or choose not to download the app can access the publications free via shop.nrca.net.
"We want to be sure our members have access to the best information whenever they need it. This is what drove the development of the app," says NRCA Executive Vice President Bill Good. "This is a giant step in our mission to deliver real, tangible benefits to our members, who no longer will have to pay extra to access our publications."
NRCA members and their employees can download the app from Apple's App Store, Google Play or Windows Store and log in using their existing user names and passwords from their www.nrca.net accounts.
