IMI Precision Engineering has launched a free smartphone app to provide engineers and maintenance supervisors with a faster and easier solution when sourcing replacement parts.
The new IMI Norgren Express App uses patent pending technology to provide maintenance engineers with an ordering system that enables them to find and order products on their smartphone from a catalogue of over 100,000 part numbers.
Utilising real time information and user location finder, the free app provides a “buy it now” option or can locate the nearest distributor with the product in stock, facilitating same day pick-up or next day delivery.
Using QR code technology, engineers can scan the product code to quickly receive real-time information regarding availability, price, and technical data.
Alternatively, for any product that is not in the database, engineers can photograph the part number or the product and send it to the app’s dedicated technical team.
The team will then identify the product and nearest stockist and provide the user with a response within 30 minutes.
