PTS makes spares simple

Published:  20 September, 2011

LONDON: PTS has launched a unique piece of software for the identification of spare parts called MiSPARES. Easily accessed through a smart phone or hand held device, the program has been designed so that installers can find and order parts whilst on site.

MiSPARES allows users to search 90 000 parts by product number, keyword, gas council number or manufacturer code. Supported by 16 000 live images and 12 000 schematic drawings, it’s easy to identify the right part, find the nearest branch of PTS and place an order.

Martyn Farrelly, spares operations director at PTS, said: “PTS is constantly striving to make life easier for installers and we are aware that a lot of time can be spent identifying the right spare part either in hand books or by travelling to a trade counter for advice.

"MiSPARES is PTS’ solution to this long standing problem, providing a comprehensive database that is simple to search. At the touch of a button the user can choose a product, find a branch and call them up to place an order – all from their current location. The aim is to save the installer time and ultimately money by making their day more efficient.”

PTS account customers can visit the MiSPARES website at to register a personal login and password. PTS’ spares service was launched in 2006 and now has 175 nationwide outlets with 1200 products stocked as standard.
