Sonepar Canada Launches New eCommerce Mobile Applications

Sonepar Canada is pleased to announce the launch of new mobile applications for Gescan Vallen, Sesco and Lumen. The mobile apps were officially released as of June of this year and features barcode scanning, access to pricing, product availability, store locator and much more – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The new mobile app is changing the way customers can interact with the Operating Companies within Sonepar Canada. The barcode scanning functionality is a popular feature amongst customers allowing them to scan an item easily and add it to their cart. The app also offers full synchronization between the mobile app and webshop platforms facilitating a seamless omni-experience. “The app is very fast and is the most user-friendly product in the market,” said Sonepar Canada Vice-President of eCommerce and Digitalization, Gaurav Sharma. “The simplicity of the user interface was a driving force behind the creation of our mobile applications.” “Unlike the traditional approach where the mobile app is an extension of the web platform, our app’s interface is specifically designed for mobile interaction, he said. “Features like quick and easy product search, barcode scanning, category drilldown or product sort by filter, allows customers to navigate through the app effortlessly. In addition, our customers can also access their quick list, order templates and history all through the mobile app.” “All our digital solutions are driven for convenience regardless of how our customers choose to transact,” Gaurav said. “This new tool adds additional flexibility and functionality to connect and transact with us – while on the go.” The Gescan, Vallen, Sesco and Lumen mobile apps are all available for download from the Apple Store and Google Play.
