Owens Corning Roofing Introduces ProSell App

Owens Corning Roofing introduces ProSell, a digital app that streamlines and expedites the residential roofing sales process from sales pitch to order processing. Available to all Owens Corning Roofing Contractor Network (OCCN) members on the iOS App Store, the ProSell app is a seamless, step-by-step resource that spans every phase of the residential roof sales process.

ProSell was developed using Leap, a digital platform that simplifies and automates the home services sales process including estimating, financing, contracting and real-time communication. ProSell includes a digital pitch book along with comprehensive product data to support efficient and accurate estimating. Once a homeowner selects products, ProSell generates an on-site estimate supported by EagleView and Hover. ProSell can also support financing and execute the contract with credit card and eCheck processing. “Owens Corning Contractor Network members know that time is money and by allowing the roofing presentation to naturally flow into product selection, financing and ordering, the ProSellapp aims to help convert more leads into closed purchases without interruptions or delays,” says Tim Keefer, Owens Corning Roofing Digital Marketing Leader.

For companies signing up for the ProSell app by April 1, Owens Corning will waive the $500 one-time set-up fee and monthly $35-per user license fee for one year. An optional upgrade is available providing extended benefits. “By using the app and becoming familiar with ProSell in the winter months, roofing companies will be able to maximize its efficiency when the busiest spring and summer selling seasons arrive,” says Keefer.

The introduction of ProSellexpands Owens Corning’s portfolio of digital contractor tools. In 2018, Owens Corning introduced the OC ConnectTM Resource Center, a redesigned web portal and one-stop resource for OCCN members to access tools that help support and grow their business.
