Travis Perkins launches app for customers to shop and manage accounts on the go

Published: 23 March 2021 - Neil Mead

Travis Perkins, one of the UK’s largest suppliers of building materials to the building and construction industry, has launched an industry first mobile app for customers. This can be downloaded from any Google Play or Apple App store and will revolutionise the way customers can order stock and manage their trade accounts on the go.

 

The app has been designed in conjunction with customers to help them save time and work smarter by enabling them to check and order stock at their personal trade prices in real time from their local branch 24/7. Not only will this transform the way they can forward plan their materials ordering and purchasing at the time that is most convenient to them, but the new app will also enable Trade Professional customers to fully manage their accounts on the go. At just the tap of a mobile button, they can check their credit accounts, pay balances and download their invoices, which means they will be able to wave goodbye to large amounts of paperwork.

“The pandemic has put huge pressure on all of us in the industry to ensure safety and keep construction projects going, and we have worked tirelessly with our customers to digitise our engagement with them and reshape our business to suit the changing demands of our markets. 

We know our customers are incredibly busy, so we have simplified our commercial deals and reduced our pricing on thousands of trade essentials, and this app will help make it easier still for our customers to work smarter and quicker by ordering on the go and managing their accounts from their pocket by ensuring they have all the information they need at their fingertips 24/7,” explained Digital Director of Travis Perkins, John Godwin.

To locate the app, customers can search for and download the ‘Travis Perkins App’ in any Google Play or the Apple App Store. They will then need to sign in or activate their online account before they can start shopping and managing their accounts directly from their mobiles.

As a welcome, Trade Professional Account customers will get 10% off when they place their first order via the Travis Perkins App.
