Plumbers merchant Plumb Center and sister company Parts Center have released apps for Android smartphones.
The apps have been available for iPhones for some time, but now installers with an LG, Samsung, HTC, Sony, or other Smartphone that uses the Android operating system, can download the apps straight to their device from the Google Play app store.
Customers with an Android tablet can also use the apps.
Users can browse thousands of products, check prices and availability, and order them for collection from their nearest branch. There is also a store locator feature, so installers always know how close they are to their nearest branch and the products they need.
