fwb Gets Smarter with Launch of New Catalogue App

With the number of smartphone users in the UK set to more than double between 2012 and 2016, from 19.2 million to 41.9 million, according to eMarketer's forecasts, supply chain partner, fwb, has launched its comprehensive Catalogue App.

Anyone from manufacturing engineers and quantity surveyors to the builder on-the-go will benefit from this easy-to-use, free app, which gives mobile and tablet users access to the expansive fwb product range wherever and whenever.

Available for iOS and Android users, the new fwb Catalogue App displays a fully interactive, digital catalogue listing of over 20,000 products from the product distributor's range, comprising nine core product groups: Pipeline & Fittings; Fasteners & Ironmongery; Tools, PPE & Workwear, Electrical, Pneumatic Controls & Instrumentation, Metals, Rubber & Plastics, and Janitorial & Site Safety.

With a simple-to-use 'Browse' facility, users can find the right product fast, view product specification details easily and link to the website seamlessly to purchase online. Account customers will find it useful too, allowing them to pre-select products prior to ordering. Other useful features include a 'Search' facility and a 'Branch' details section, which enables the user to direct dial and email fwb's three sites.

Experts in delivering the best product and procurement solutions to the construction, infrastructure, industrial and public sector markets, fwb's chief executive Ian Hodge comments: "We're celebrating our 50th anniversary this year and are committed to moving forward and improving customer service.
