Intelligent Mobile Support Customer Presents Axon at ACCA Conference Noted HVACR Contractor Cites Profitability Impact of Mobile Solution

SOLON, Ohio, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Within weeks of its launch, Intelligent Mobile Support's (www.imobilesupport.com) mobile solution, Axon, is receiving praise from users. One of the nation's most respected distributors, Gustave A. Larson Company (www.galarson.com), recently adopted the new technology, citing Axon's positive influence on new-customer recruitment and building loyalty with established contractors such as Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning (www.shavitz.com).

"Axon helps us differentiate ourselves from our competitors," says Gustave A. Larson Marketing Specialist David Blau. "It makes our customers' technicians more efficient in the field and gives them immediate access to our service advisors. Axon is a great marketing solution, too. We can send marketing messages via text or display banner advertisements while the service technicians are troubleshooting the equipment. IMS has developed an amazing product; we're very excited to share it with our dealer base as well as prospective business partners."

Axon, a smartphone/tablet application developed by Solon, Ohio-based Intelligent Mobile Support, is designed to streamline and strengthen the technical support process. It includes Hot Pages from OEM manuals to help technicians find installment and repair solutions quickly; Live Connect, a direct line to service experts, typically at the distributor level; and Dialog, which improves communications within a contractor's organization as well as between the contractor and distributor.

Shavitz Heating and Air Conditioning's Service Manager, Brad Hunley, also saw immediate value in the new solution, and purchased Axon for every one of its service techs. The technology further impressed the company's CEO, Bronson Shavitz, who is presenting Axon as part of a seminar on Mobile Tech on March 18, 2014 at 2:30pm in the Washington B Room at the ACCA Conference in Nashville, Tennessee (www.acca.org/education/conference).

"Axon will help us eliminate service delays and prevent profit-eroding customer callbacks," says CEO Bronson Shavitz. "With Axon, we can tap into the service expertise of our entire company and instantly reach all of our distributor's service advisors. Axon literally delivers all of this service expertise to the doorsteps of every one of our valued customers. Yet as important as it is to our bottom line to eliminate service delays and call-backs in the short term, the real benefit is keeping our valued customers for the long term. At the end of the day, happy customers give us the word-of-mouth referrals that help us grow."

IMS offers free Axon webinars to contractors, distributors and OEMs interested in learning more about its capabilities.
