The world’s first social network for plumbers, Bristan Connect, is going mobile with the launch of the Connect app for Android and Apple.
The Connect app will allow members to access all of the features of the desktop platform without the need to always be connected to their mobile data – ideal for plumbers on the go. The social network enables users to connect with other plumbers both professionally and socially, and provides a forum where they can chat, share top tips or industry news, and recommend anything from a new product to their favourite band.
Recent research from leading market researcher Forrester has suggested that the digital future will see customer engagement on popular sites like Facebook and Twitter decrease in favour of independent platforms, such as Connect, where users can receive more personalised information and support.
Bill Wilson, Group e-commerce manager at Bristan, comments: “The launch of the app will allow plumbers to take Connect wherever they go, in one easier to use app. Whilst mainstream sites are great for brand profiling, we’ve found that a specialised community such as Connect offers members a specific outlet for their experiences and opinions amongst fellow professionals.
“More than this, the Connect app allows installers to demonstrate products to customers in an interactive and interesting way via their smartphone, wherever they are, enabling them to provide specialist support and information as it’s needed.”
Bristan Connect is the world's first social network for plumbers. Designed to make life easier for installers, Bristan Connect allows users to share hints, tips, product recommendations, images and videos with other plumbers. Connect members are also the first to hear about exclusive promotional offers on Bristan showers and taps. For further information visit http://www.bristanconnect.com
