The Bestway mobile app launched in September last year has now reached the milestone of having been downloaded 10,000 times by businesses across the UK, providing more evidence that the group remain the leader when it comes to digital technology within the wholesale sector.
The award-winning app boasts a host of functions including previous order history and in-built product scanner with real-time product catalogue and availability details.
RNF’s Managing Director Rob Mannion says “This is a significant milestone for the Bestway Group and we look forward to delivering many new exciting updates throughout the year. Since its launch the app has continually evolved to improve the customer experience, ensuring it remains at the forefront of any comparable services within the sector”
The app, which is available and free to download for Apple and Android devices, now accounts for around 17% of the group’s total online sales and is the preferred method of ordering for 30% of users who either click and collect from their depot or have ordered stock delivered to their business.
Dawood Pervez, marketing director of Bestway is delighted by the uptake from customers; “When we launched the Bestway mobile app last year, the whole idea was to make it as simple as possible for customers to do business with the Bestway and Batleys ensuring that they could browse and order whenever and wherever they chose to. To have the app downloaded 10,000 times is not only a great success for the group but also shows how customers are embracing new technologies to help them trade more profitably in the changing face of retail. We will continue to innovate and bring new solutions both online and in-depot to make sure that we continue to meet the needs of our valued customers.”
