Suppliers find it easy to sell a wide variety of products.

The online application offers versions for both do-it-yourselfers and pros for deck, fence, garage, post frame design. Inspirational applications are also offered for kitchen and bath design.

Suppliers create a data catalog to position products on retail and media sites to reach new audiences.

What is a data catalog?
A data catalog is a digital asset library of product dimensions and specifications as to how products are used. It includes collateral to help sell products, such as photos, logos and marketing content. It is the foundation for designing, estimating and marketing products. For example, data catalogs that are created for Deck Design include deck railings, decking, fasteners, post caps, brackets, and specialty products. Data catalogs are also created for outdoor living products such as grills, hot tubs, rugs, outdoor furniture, tool rental and more. These products are not only quoted on the bill of materials, but they are also displayed on the 3D design.

Suppliers co-brand Big Hammer Outdoor Design to offer design & estimating on company websites.
