RepConnect by KCL puts MAFSI Reps (and their brands) in front of all the Specifiers in North America

Introducing RepConnect by KCL

KCL helped define industry library standards for AutoCAD and Revit, providing access to over 128,763 models from 220 manufacturers as well as 106,693 CAD files, 106,693 PDFs and 64,145 Revit families.

Now, KCL has partnered with MAFSI to put our 270+ rep firms in front of the specifier, through RepConnect. MAFSI rep firm contact information will appear by brand, by location, allowing food facilities planners and consultants, including designers, architects, planners, and restaurant owners to find and contact the local rep for the brand their seeking.

RepConnect puts the Specifier and the Rep Together, at the Right Time

Reps know their products. They’re are the experts and are the local source to answer questions and brainstorm solutions to planning and equipment problems at any point in the design process. And now, specifiers, through RepConnect, will know how to contact their local rep.

KCL users find, by brand and user location, their rep’s company name, phone number, and location without having to exit KCL’s design program. They can seamlessly click and connect to the rep’s website or call them using the company phone number listed in KCL. From there, they can learn more about the product or servicing and build a supportive relationship with the manufacturers' rep.

How RepConnect Works

Users simply search a product line on any KCL platform- KCL 5 Desktop, Web, and Mobile- and the relevant MAFSI rep’s name and contact information appear alongside the product information. RepConnect defaults to the address where the KCL user is registered, but can be changed based on project location or preferred worksite.
