|Thursday, February 5, 2015 – EASYCALC™, Nexans’ new online free cable sizing tool, was awarded the “Product of the Year 2015” Gold Label by the construction industry in the Services to Businesses/Companies category, during a ceremony held at the Grand Hôtel Intercontinental Opéra in Paris.|
12,000 downloads in 6 months
Designed to facilitate the daily work of professional electricians, EASYCALC™ allows installers to determine precisely and easily the right cable for their electrical installation.
Introduced in June 2014, this free cable sizing tool developed by Nexans is available on-line from the company’s website (www.nexans.fr/easycalc) or as a mobile app on smartphones and tablets for electrical installers on the move (at a building or customer’s site, etc.).
The mobile app, which is available on Apple Store and Google Play, has been a huge success on the market since it was launched, with over 12,000 downloads so far. A success that is confirmed when looking at its usage: the average number of calculations performed daily on both platforms (web and app) amounts to 1,000 calculations. Also, more than 90% of calculations result in returning a product part number and thus an existing product datasheet within Nexans product catalogue.
Rewarding the best construction products of the year
For the third year in 2015, Sageret presented the Best Construction Product Awards to reward the most creative and innovative manufacturers in their respective field. The Product of the Year label was awarded by professionals in the construction sector after a broad online consultation, in which more than 250,000 businesses and 50,000 specifiers were asked during one month to vote for the best products in four general categories, including Structures, Interior Work, Technical Equipment and Services to Businesses/Companies.
This year, 8,522 businesses were able to cast their vote for their favourite products during three weeks (from January 5-23)..
After public success, EASYCALC is now officially rewarded by professionals who recognized the quality and usefulness of the tool. Rated 4.3 out of 5, EASYCALC™ achieved the best grade among the other 60 rewarded products.
