Global Industrial Is One Of First In The Industry To Develop Tablet And Mobile Specific Sites To Enhance Productivity

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Global Industrial has developed tablet- and mobile- specific sites for customers, making on-the-go inventory replenishment easier than ever.

“Tablets are the new productivity tool,” said Bob Dooley, president of Global Industrial. “We are proud to be one of the first companies in this industry to be able to provide this touch technology to our customers. Customers, including warehouse, plant and facilities managers, can walk around their facilities, identify products that are required to be purchased, and use touch technology to immediately place orders without returning to their offices.”

Tablets provide flexibility, portability, and the opportunity to increase efficiencies for businesses, ordering capabilities and convenience. Global Industrial also has cell phone and smart phone-friendly sites that provide account management tools to further streamline the process.

“We are leading the industry with our tablet-specific site,” Dooley continued. “It’s our goal to make our customer’s purchasing and sourcing easier and more efficient whenever possible.”

Designed to work with every tablet operating system (OS), the tablet site fits any screen and provides finger-friendly navigation.
