Mohawk Group’s VIS (Visual Interactive Studio) +Amplify gives contract designers the power to explore every facet of a project’s floor plan and perfect every aspect of a flooring specification, including acoustical properties, in a fully immersive virtual experience complete with various room scenarios. The VIS +Amplify process takes some of the guesswork out of choosing flooring by helping to identify and eliminate potential issues before even making a specification. Within the software, users can easily switch between flooring collections and colorways, while also sampling footfall decibel readings based on different environmental attributes. VIS is the only flooring software for specifications in the flooring industry that utilizes a gaming engine to provide the most realistic visuals in a completely immersive environment. Last year, VIS was honored with a Best of NeoCon Gold Award in the Software/Application for Specifications category. Coupled with its latest enhancement, +Amplify, specifiers are transported into their spaces before they are even created to help optimize flooring designs using the power of sound. Employing the use of the VIS +Amplify software helps lower the dependence on samples and other presentation materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill once the specification has been made. VIS +Amplify is a sustainable-minded customer specification solution, helping to cut down on waste by digitizing much of the earlier stages of the flooring selection process.
