Wolseley Plumb and Parts joins up with Gas App and Plumb App.

Specialist lightside merchant Wolseley Plumb and Parts has partnered with Gas App and Plumb App to bring in-app improvements, exclusive member deals, and tailored information about events and services at their local Wolseley Plumb & Parts branches.

Wolseley Plumb & Parts initially announced its headline sponsorship package with Gas App in January 2020.

Both apps are available on the App Store and Play Store, and currently have a combined over 60,000 members. Containing a wide variety of useful features, Gas App and Plumb App helps heating and plumbing installers improve the quality of their work while saving time and money.

In their first update following the partnership, both apps will introduce personalised Merchant areas where users can quickly locate their nearest Wolseley Plumb & Parts branch, view deals exclusive to specific branches and contact the branch to discuss any queries they may have. Information such as local supplier roadshows will also be available so installers never miss the opportunity to meet reps from their preferred suppliers.

Other features of the apps include libraries of manufacturer manuals and instructions, vital digital documents such as Gas Inspection forms and landlord gas safety records, job sheets, monthly competitions, and a community for installers to share best practice and troubleshoot problems on the job. The apps also contain peer-to-peer video reviews providing honest and reliable assessments from fellow engineers on new tools and products.

Chris Taylor-Hone, national director at Wolseley Plumb & Parts, said: “We are delighted to partner with Gas App and Plumb App. In addition to the many exciting opportunities to improve the apps’ features and user experience, with the launch of the Merchant module, every one of our 409 branch managers will have the ability to speak directly to app users in their town about exclusive events and deals.  Additionally, our specialist colleagues will be available to offer advice to app users within the app itself.”
