Multi award-winning wholesaler JW Filshill are the first Sanderson customer to take advantage of the ordering app built by RNF as part of the RNF/Sanderson partnership we announced earlier this year.
The app, which is available in both iOS and Android versions, was launched at their customer trade show and was downloaded more 150 times on the first day alone. The app which enables customers to order products 24/7 from their mobile device has full product information and time-saving features such as instant barcode scanning and pre-populated shopping lists. It also allows customers to view their account history.
Importantly, the app links with RNF’s bespoke customer engagement platform BEAM. This enables Filshill to engage with their app users in a personalised and relevant way through rich push notifications and in-app advertising.
Fehad Shehzad, JW Filshill IT Manager, said, “At Filshill we are committed to providing our customers with an excellent service and the app is helping us to strengthen this. Our customers are impressed with how intuitive the app is and now use it to trade with us. It saves time for our customers and provides us with another channel to communicate with them. The app is becoming invaluable already and is proving to be a powerful sales tool.”
Rob Mannion, RNF Digital Innovation Managing Director, said, “It’s great to see innovative wholesalers like JW Filshill using our app and taking advantage of the partnership we set up with Sanderson. Working with Sanderson has enabled us to overcome any API issues and offer a solution to their customers that allows them to take advantage of all the benefits mobile offers.”
