Plumb Center and Parts Center's mobile apps are now available on Android.

Plumb Center and Parts Center release apps for Android

Published:  14 June, 2013

Plumb Center and Parts Center have released apps for Android phones, putting a range of features at customers’ fingertips.

The apps have been available for iPhones since last year, but now installers with an LG, Samsung, HTC, or any other Smartphone that uses the Android operating system, can download the apps straight to their device from the Google Play app store. Customers with an Android tablet can also use the apps.

Users can browse thousands of products, check prices and availability, and order them for collection from their nearest branch. There is also a store locator feature, so installers always know how close they are to their nearest branch and the products they need.

“I’m a big fan of the apps – they’re definitely a benefit to my business,” said Plumb Center customer Paul Ayres, owner of PJA Group. “Eight of my guys have downloaded them to their Smartphones and they’re really useful.

“It’s handy for the team to get specs up when they’re on the job. They can get the prices of the products there and then, and confirm it with the clients just by showing them the phone.

“The branch locator is also a great feature. Quite often we do jobs in locations we’re not familiar with, but just by tapping our phones we can find the nearest branch and that’s a big help.”

To download the apps head to the Google Play store and search ‘Plumb Center’ or ‘Parts Center’.
