Individual chapters and pages in the catalog can be saved and emailed directly from the app. With the tools function, users can be directed to the product that will meet their needs based on application attributes.

Videos on the app include business overviews, product training and expert interviews.

PowerEdge is available for free on the iTunes and Google Play stores.
