Jewson launches iPhone app
Published: 04 October, 2010
COVENTRY: Jewson, the UK’s leading supplier of sustainable timber and building materials to the trade, has launched an app for the iPhone allowing customers to locate Jewson branches, receive exclusive offers and access directions to the branch they are visiting.
The app is free to download from the iPhone App Store and can easily be found by searching for Jewson. The Jewson app is designed to make finding the location of a branch as easy as possible by showing a map of all the branches across the country, allowing the user to focus on a specific area in which they are working. By allowing the app to pinpoint the user’s location, tradesmen can see at a glance the ten closest branches to their current position and a built in route finder will navigate the user to the branch selected.
In terms of offers, users are able to view details of Jewson’s 'Price Blitz’, which features deals across its entire range including timber and building products. Price Blitz deals are very competitively priced and are updated every fortnight. For tradesmen looking to contact the branch directly, the app also allows the user to email the branch manager or call the branch selected with any queries they may have.
Gareth Drew, online marketing manager for Jewson, commented, “The iPhone app has been developed to provide customers with a simple to use branch locator/route finder function making it possible for users to find their local branch based on their current location. The app is also great for informing our customers on the latest offers and deals that are available in-branch.”
