Customers encouraged to download MyLocalRS app for a chance to win a Motorola Smartphone

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, is reminding customers to download its specialist branch network app before the end of March for a chance to win a Motorola Smartphone. The first of its kind in the high service distribution market, the MyLocalRS app brings the complete range of 550,000 products, such as batteries and cables (including the handy Ethernet cable), even closer to those customers on the move.

The app, which has been downloaded by more than 1500 customers since it was launched in January, is optimised for the iPad, iPhone and Android smartphones and helps customers find, locate and contact their local RS branch at a touch of a button.

Featuring the latest offers and ‘Manager’s Specials’ in each of the 16 UK branches, the app also has a handy delivery checker to help customers check courier delivery times and prices. Furthermore, a series of videos highlights services that help customers reduce time for packaging, processing, stock handling and goods-in.

Lisa Townsend, Branch Marketing Developer at RS Components, comments: “MyLocalRS is an extension of the service customers already get from their local RS branch, so being in with a chance to also win a Smartphone is even more reason to download it!”

“The app is an exciting innovation for us since it helps our customers locate their nearest branch, provides a link to our website to check stock availability, order products and see the latest offers – all whilst on the go. Our branch teams have a great relationship with their customers and the app helps to maintain a personal touch when it’s not possible to be face to face,” she added.

Customers can be in with a chance to win a Motorola Smartphone after downloading the app and sending their contact details via the feedback button, located in the information section. The closing date is 31st March 2012 and all terms and conditions can be found in the news section at rs

MyLocalRS app is available on iPad, iPhone and Android smartphones and is free to download from the Android Market or the App Store. For more information log onto the RS website, rs
