Portal Launches Proposal and Purchasing iPhone App
Portal, formerly SupplyStream, the free web-based proposal and purchasing platform for dealers, announces today that the company’s long-awaited native iPhone app is now available for free download in the AppStore. Portal’s award winning industry product catalog, proposal software, and industry purchasing tool are fully functional in the new, native app.
With the new app, Portal has taken all of the functionality of their web service and put into the palm of Dealers’ hands. No one in the industry has ever put so much functionality, so intuitively, into a mobile device. The Portal service has been completely re-designed from the ground up to ensure that it works elegantly on a small screen and the result is an experience on the iPhone that may actually be more simple and efficient than on the web.
“We live in a mobile world and dealers should be able to conduct business when and where they need to, without limitation,” says Kirk Chisholm, founder of Portal and former Chicago integrator. “Our new app frees dealers from their desktop, and increases profitability by putting them in the field with their clients. Never before has such functionality been offered in such a simple user interface, for free!”
Maitland Fritzley with Infinite Home Theater in Boise, Idaho, has been using Portal for two years and got an early version of the app to test.
“This is incredibly convenient for my business. I can work on bids and my wife thinks I’m just cruising Facebook. You have no clue how much I love Portal right now for building this.”
Mosey Levy, an integrator based in New York, was also beta tester for the app. He was recently a guest on a video podcast by AVNation to review and rate the app.
“The other day I punched out a quote while giving my baby a bottle, and that deserves a 5 out of 5 rating.”
