Evo-Stik First to Market with iPhone App

Added: 15 May 2010

The free App enables customers to identify the right product for a job by either picking the two surfaces that need to be joined together from an interactive carousel or by browsing a range of categories.

It then uses GPS to plot their exact location and find their nearest stockist of selected products on a map via a quick store finder. Favourite products and stockists can be bookmarked so that they can be referred to quickly again in the future.

Jon Griffiths, Product Manager for Evo-Stik, comments: "The use of such technology within the DIY sector is a market first and demonstrates Evo-Stik's continued commitment to driving innovation. This solutions-based approach will help simplify the purchasing process for customers making it accessible from home or when in store."

The iPhone application will be promoted on pack across a number of core high volume Evo-Stik products. A full demonstration of the App is available on YouTube.

To find out more, search 'Evo-Stik' in the AppStore or contact Evo-Stik directly on 01785 272625. Alternatively, log on to www.evo-stik.co.uk
