Suite of digital tools will assist the contractors’ day-to-day responsibilities.
Embraco, a world leader in innovation and one of the largest manufacturers of hermetic compressors for refrigeration, recently launched the Embraco Toolbox, a digital application that combines several unique features to provide support for contractors. Embraco has always been attentive to new developments in the digital world, and not only offers innovative solutions through its products, but also provides leading services for industry professionals to support them with their day-to-day responsibilities.  
The Embraco Toolbox App is the company's latest offering to make the contractor’s work easier. "The application reaffirms our technological leadership and allows us to further strengthen our relationship with contractors and partners," shared Guilherme de Almeida, Marketing Manager, Embraco. Available in all countries and in more than 10 languages, the Embraco Toolbox App has seven features to help facilitate the contractors’ day-to-day business. The features include: a search tool for the nearest distributor, the Embraco product catalog, a cross-reference product guide, unit converter, refrigerant ruler, a tool to identify causes of the main cooling system problems, as well as all Refrigeration Club content. The application’s launch will ensure access to practical and efficient information and it can be accessed, at first, via smartphones with iOS and Android operating systems, available for download in the App Store and Play Store. A version for tablets will be available later this year.New Website for the Refrigeration ClubThe Refrigeration Club, the segment’s main information website, has a new look and many new features. One of them is the interactive forum, a space dedicated to contractors for exchanging information and sharing experiences. “With the redesign, users can download exclusive materials, consult the training and lecture schedules and also print a Club membership card,” added Almeida. The new features complement existing sections that provide exclusive information on topics including technical explanations and tutorials on marketing, sales and sustainability. With over 50,000 visits per month, Refrigeration Club has become a resource for industry news and best practices. “With the latest updates, we plan to further expand the number of users and continue to build trust in the Embraco brand and quality of our products and services,” concluded Almeida.Product Selection Software The Product Selection Software replaces the electronic catalog and assists customers in selecting the most appropriate solutions for different refrigeration systems, providing more independence for contractors, retailers and manufacturers. The tool makes it possible to search for a solution that best fits the intended application’s parameters. The user just needs to enter the necessary characteristics, such as size or cooling capacity and the desired operating condition. It’s also possible to filter by refrigerant, voltage, efficiency and other criteria. After selecting the search, the user can even simulate the compressor’s behavior in the operating condition that he wants, which can be any standard norm as well as a custom condition. The software can also be downloaded so that it can be used without an internet connection.
