New Ibstock app matches customer needs

Published:  30 September, 2013

Ibstock Brick has launched a bespoke iPad and iPhone app that makes the brick matching and selection process easier for customers.

The free Ibstock Brick app contains a brick matching facility that allows customers to filter the selection by colour, texture, size and type. This makes it easy to find the right brick for any project through a simple straightforward process.

Andrew Halstead-Smith, group marketing manager at Ibstock Brick, said: “Increasingly, tablets and smartphones are becoming the technology of choice, whether at work or at play. Our new app goes above and beyond other brick apps and means customers can access Ibstock’s whole brick library at the touch of a button, wherever they are.

“Whether used by a contractor or specifier on-site looking for a quick brick solution, a merchant in-store to help customers easily through the brick-matching challenge, or by a self-builder looking for inspiration from images of other projects, the app is a great way to see the ranges Ibstock has to offer.”

The app contains the entire Ibstock brick library, and allows the user access to a full range of Ibstock panel and project shots. It also has the ability to compare multiple products, order samples and share images via email for review.

iPad and iPhone users can download the free app now by searching for Ibstock Brick in the Apple App Store, with the Android version coming soon.
