Shower manufacturer Bristan has added a number of new features to its social network for plumbers, Bristan Connect.
Key new features include a ‘Connect Events’ section where plumbers can look up their next Bristan Connect event, which include curry nights to go karting. Also, a new ‘Share’ button means members can more easily share their favourite posts, images and videos with their connections and in forums.
Other additions include an ‘Ask Me About’ tab for sharing tips and advice, a ‘Poll’ section where installers can share their feedback on new products and industry issues, and a ‘Recommendation’ button enabling third party endorsements.
Also, a new ‘Stockist Locator’ tab means all members will automatically have their details displayed on the network, further helping to drive business.
Fiona Bowyer, marketing director at Bristan, said: “Since its launch in May 2014, Connect has proven a huge success – offering an ideal platform for members to share their experiences and tips with other plumbers. However, we are not a company to rest on our laurels and, following feedback from customers, we have added a raft of new features to provide further benefits for those using the site and, in turn, make our customers lives easier.
“This really is just the beginning for Bristan Connect and we have lots more in the pipeline as we continue develop the platform and consolidate its position as the number one online resource for plumbers nationwide.”
