TP enhances customer offering with new app

Published:  01 February, 2013

Travis Perkins has made it easier for customers to stay in touch by launching a free app for iPhone, iPad and Android users. The app comes with a host of innovative features including directions to the nearest branch and local branch services.

This interactive app is also a handy tool for use on site. The brick calculator can be used to purchase exactly the right amount of product for any job by taking into consideration brick size, wall space, total area of doors and windows and whether the wall will be single or double skin. And the handy built-in spirit level will help make sure that the resulting wall is straight and level.

Jon Parry, multi-channel director for Travis Perkins, said: “Our aim is to make it easy for our customers to do business with Travis Perkins. With more and more of our customers using smart-phones, we hope that this new App will help our customers save time and money.”

Additional services will be added to the app over the coming months. The release of the app coincides with the recent launch of the new Travis Perkins website which enables customers to request a quote from the leading builders merchant outside of regular trading hours. Go to the App Store or Google Play and type in ‘Travis Perkins’ to download the free app.
