Oxford, UK (PRWEB UK) 22 May 2012
Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, has launched its investor relations (IR) app offering instant online and offline access to the company’s latest financial and corporate information on the Apple iPad and iPhone. The app is available now for download from the App Store free of charge, in time for the company’s financial results for the year ended 31 March 2012, which will be announced on 24 May 2012.
To download the app, visit the App Store and search for Electrocomponents.
The IR app gives immediate and convenient access to the latest financial and corporate news, interactive share price charts, financial calendar, presentations, reports and videos. The app presents key investor information currently found on the Electrocomponents website in a clear, interactive and easy-to-use manner, enriching the user’s experience. The IR app is a complementary tool to the website, offering live data as well as doubling up as an archive when offline.
Research by Morgan Stanley predicts that mobile internet users will overtake desktop users by 2014. The iPad is already being widely adopted by organisations and research shows that this trend will continue at an accelerated pace. Information and analysis provider IHS forecasts that iPad shipments will reach 120.1m units in 2015.
“We’re really pleased to offer our investment community the option to view our financial and corporate information with just one touch on the iPad or iPhone, enabling convenient accessibility on the move. Our new app reflects the commitment we have as a company to deliver new solutions to our stakeholders using the latest and most innovative technologies available,” said Matt Jones, Head of Investor Relations at Electrocomponents.
Joining other FTSE companies such as M&S, Royal Dutch Shell and Unilever, Electrocomponents is using new media channels and online content to connect with its corporate investors in a more personal way. The IR app was developed by the Innovation team at Electrocomponents to offer complex data in an easy-to-use manner.
