How AEP Span is Helping Architects and Contractors Get What They Need

AEP Span forms strategic partnership with Concora to supercharge corporate website.


WEST SACRAMENTO AND ALPHARETTA, CA AND GA, USA, February 23, 2022/ — Concora, developer of the commercial building products industry’s only digital experience platform designed specifically for commercial building product manufacturers, and AEP Span — a premier architectural metal roofing and siding products manufacturer—have formed a strategic partnership.

This business alliance begins with the recent and successful commercial launch of AEP Span’s brand-new online Design Studio, which core architects and contractors can access via AEP Span’s corporate website. The new web experience — which serves as an expansive and detailed product information hub for AEP Span’s web visitors — not only serves as a branded extension of the AEP Span corporate website, it also provides their customers with a simpler method for searching, selecting and specifying its commercial building products.

The Concora platform equips AEP Span with an intuitive product selection experience for its design community, technical content management and publishing that is easy, and real-time access to detailed metrics and analytics — product asset downloads, unique visits, project-related inquiries, and user contact information — for its sales and marketing teams — enriching its lead generation pipeline, uncovering true purchasing intent, and driving sales.

“We are pleased with the partnership between AEP Span and Concora. The ability for architects and contractors to get quick and easy access to our products and associated technical documentation all from one site makes the submittal process a breeze.
