Barton Electrical App by PC Futures

Barton Electrical is an Ipswich based electrical contractor with an enviable reputation. The businesses owner has always been ahead of the technology curve and with the help of PC Futures we aim to keep them there.  All of their engineers are equipped with the latest tools of the trade and they remain connected via iPads and smartphones ensuring as seamless an operation as possible for their customers.  All this aside they want to offer them even more.

At a recent business event PC Futures were asked by the owner of Barton Electrical at a business event and he asked us what an app could do for his business?

The Answer?

We discussed how he currently operates and suggested that as people of all generations are now comfortable with smartphone and tablet technology it would enable him to leave a permanent business card.

People are rarely away from their phones for long these days, it is part of modern life.  So when they need an electrician or they want to recommend one they go to the app and direct their friends to it.  This gives Barton Electrical a permanent shop window to keep people aware of what their company and staff can do.

It removes the risk of his business card being lost or someone appearing above him in an internet search.  People have the app on their phone and can call at the touch of a button.

With a host of other features included like a tech cam we then secured the order for Barton Elec, the app.

Best of all by using our SKYRUNNER technology Barton Electrical’s marketing team and back office staff can update their app with no IT experience or further costs.  It is 100% client controlled.
