MiTek USA announced the release of a new Project Explorer app, designed to search for and plan outdoor projects.  This app was built in conjunction with OZCO Building Products, the leading manufacturer of Ornamental Wood Ties (OWT). The Project Explorer app is a free download at the Apple App Store: Link. 

OZCO Building Products is best known for originating the Ornamental Wood Ties hardware category; the company offers superior-quality structural connectors for use in decks, pergolas, benches, fences, gates, posts, gardens, planters, and more. 

Now, professionals, DIYers, and pro-sumers can access a gallery of images of finished pergolas, pavilions, and backyard projects within the new Project Explorer app.  The project concepts are presented along with estimates of the material costs, a dealer locator, and the opportunity to share photos of selected projects with others.

The Project Explorer app enhances OZCO’s leadership in quality products and value-added services.  OZCO’s in-store displays feature visually distinctive color packaging and merchandizing that draw the buyers’ attention.  In addition, OZCO offers an unrivaled depth of online product knowledge resources, which now include the Project Explorer app.

“This dynamite new app is just an extension of the services and visual guides that we have put in the market to help with selection of our products,” said OZCO’s Ian Hill.  “If anyone spots a project they’d like to build, or want to hire someone to build it, the app makes it easy to estimate the costs and widely share the image with anyone working on the project.”
