iPad catalog for Disguise, a leading designer and manufacturer of Halloween

The native app does not require web access for dozens of sales reps and
hundreds of retailers that sell Disguise products. It uses a custom designed
database that controls all aspects of product information and ordering
functions. From anywhere at any time, Disguise reps and retailers can browse
and order from the company's extensive portfolio of costumes for infants
through adults featuring options from Disney, Marvel, Hasbro and Sesame

"Troy Apps created an incredibly beautiful design and a full-featured
application that truly demonstrates the creativity and high quality of
Disguise costumes. And the cost savings of the iPad catalog app versus our
printed catalog is astounding when we account for printing and postage," said
Bernice Nesbit, Director of Marketing at Disguise. "Updates are also a real
plus. Once you send the printed catalog to press, it's essentially out of
date. With our iPad catalog we can continually update SKUs, pricing and add
new releases for our retail customers."

Disguise iPad Catalog Features:

  o1500+ costumes and products
  o2500+ product/price SKUs
  oSearch capabilities for products and categories that auto-populate as you
    type your query
  oBuilt in Help system that explains all functionality
  oIntegrated videos
  o360 degreeproduct views with embedded product information
  oBookmark any product for future review
  oUnique user number for each sales rep, which unlocks custom lists of their
    customers and billing information

  oEmail quotes or estimates available for customer approval before order

download on iTunes.

"Our iPad catalog apps enable our customers to sell more in the new
tablet-based world," said Troy Apps Software CEO Michael Trautt. "A native
iPad catalog enables companies to quickly capture market share. Everything is
faster and more effective – the sales team sells more efficiently, dealers and
distributors are up-to-date at all times, and end users appreciate the ease at
which they can search and purchase products on their iPad."
