Bringing a whole new meaning to convenience

The new Bestway Batleys app is now available on Android in addition to the IOS platform.

Unknown-1The ground-breaking, free app which was launched by Bestway Wholesale in November has been a runaway success becoming a top ten business download with Apple in the first two weeks of launch and has now been downloaded over 4,200 times from the Appstore.

“The response to the new Bestway app has been extremely encouraging from customers” says Mohammed Jamil, Digital Controller at the Bestway Group.

“We have had thousands of downloads and 5 star reviews across the board from customers who appreciate its simplicity and functionality. Bestway customers are extremely busy so the app helps them create more time to spend on their business by speeding up the selection and buying process. They have also told us that they love the flexibility of being able to click and collect or get delivery to store. The launch of the Android version will mean that more customers will now be able to shop with Bestway or Batleys wherever they are and whenever they need to.”

Salih Sheikh, Marketing Manager continues “A key part of Bestway’s commitment to customers is to provide the very best in service. Price is a given, but great service – just like our retailers give to their customers – promotes trust and loyalty. Our marketing is all about engaging with customers on a personal level and ensuring that we meet and exceed their expectations whether in depot, in store or online. The Bestway app is without a doubt sector leading – in fact I believe it is industry-leading. Bestway is now leading the field in customer service and technology and is the only wholesaler who has a fully functional omni-channel approach to marketing. We have ensured that our customers can use any channel to shop with us at any stage of the decision-making process, giving them all the information they need whenever they need it. Ordering has never been so easy for retailers.”

The new android version will increase the app’s reach to users of non iPhone devices and will mirror the IOS version with many innovative features:

Real time product catalogue:

Bestway is renowned for having the widest range and highly competitive pricing and users will now be able to see current prices and stock levels on over 20,000 at their local Bestway or Batleys depot. Importantly the product catalogue is available offline so that users can still compile their order when without signal or wifi.

Barcode Scanner:

To facilitate ordering the app has a built in barcode scanner which identifies SKUs and adds them to the users basket.

Order History:

Previous orders are logged to help users re order quickly at the tap of  a button.

Depot Locator:

Users can see details of their nearest depot with the latest journey time, traffic information, route guidance and weather reports.

Easy to use:
