Visual Applications,Inc., a developer of visualization software applications for the home improvement and landscape industry, recently launched, an interactive community for home and garden enthusiasts and businesses alike.

Showoff brings businesses straight to the homes of interested customers with a comfortable shopping environment where visitors can shop for ideas, products and services from the comforts of home and receive support from experts in the home industry.

Landscape designers, contractors and other industry professionals can get in front of a captive audience by uploading photos of their own work into the Portfolio Gallery for customers to peruse. By joining the Showoff business community, these same businesses can capitalize on that presence. As a member, businesses can capture leads from interested consumers, generate direct referrals from the site and only pay when a lead is produced.  Businesses can also choose to apply a Custom Visualizer to their own website which allows the visualization technology to be exclusively used for their products alone. is the creation of Bobbie Dreis-Ayers, a veteran of visualization software development. “The goal of was to marry the needs of consumers and businesses into a site that worked for both parties,” says Dreis-Ayers. “We are incredibly excited about the launch of and hope that this site will become a fitting room of sorts for the consumer and an important sales channel for participating businesses.”
