Guildford, U.K., 14 April 2010 - With more and more customers choosing to view and buy online, BOC is encouraging businesses to register on its new safety products website and enjoy the benefits already available through its retail and telephone sales services – and more.
The new website allows customers to order the full range of BOC safety and workplace gear online. In order to help make the browsing and purchasing experience as simple and satisfying as possible, the site can track a customer’s purchases and store ‘favourites’ for future visits. It will also indicate related products which can be bought at the same time.
The site will also feature special ‘online-only’ promotions on a regular basis.
During April and May, there will also be a number of incentives to register with the site. Anyone registering before 16 May – whether or not they buy anything – will be automatically entered into a prize draw for an new Apple iPad.
All orders place in April will be eligible for double Nectar points – BOC is the only safety products and industrial gases company to be affiliated to Nectar.
And all orders of more than GBP 50 (excluding VAT) placed during April are entitled to free delivery within the UK and Ireland.
Emma Byron, Senior Marketing Manager for BOC Safety Products, commented: “An increasing number of our customers have been asking for an online purchasing facility. So we are adding this to our existing service so that people can order whichever way suits them best – online, by email, by phone or by fax.”
