Southwire® Apps bring powerful tools to customers and end users

5/28/2012

Southwire Company, one of North America's largest producers of wire and cable, is releasing a series of mobile apps that will offer electrical contractors, utilities, OEM's and other end users of Southwire's products and services powerful mobile tools that they can access on-the-go to maximize productivity.

"On visits to jobsites and customer locations, we observed how much time managers spent away from their desks and their computers. The Southwire Mobile Apps are designed to put powerful tools in the hands of end users and customers.  These mobile apps can help to calculate everything from the amount of cable left on a reel, to appropriate conduit size, to the voltage drop and current carrying capacity of an electrical circuit," said Stu Thorn, President and CEO of Southwire Company. "Smartphones and tablets are more common today for business applications, even on jobsites. We're investing in developing a series of apps that will help both customers and end users of our products get their jobs done more efficiently."
