Free to access on both mobile and desktop devices, BuyTrade has been designed to help installers to find the spare parts they need quickly and efficiently to complete their job, fast.
Using the online search tool, tradespeople can find the part they need from over 1.6 million spares (all heating products will be added later this year), using real-time stock availability from over 1,000 merchant branches. Currently, BuyTrade has partnered with City Plumbing, Wolseley, and HRP Trade, but plans to increase the merchant database are on the horizon.
Once the installer has found the spare part they require, they can compare collection and delivery options (including same day delivery), as well as prices, to help find the best fulfilment option available for them and their customer. If a part is out of stock or obsolete, they can send a request through the software to the BuyTrade team – who will assist in sourcing the same part or a suitable alternative (usually within 48 hours) – allowing installers to concentrate on other priorities in the meantime.
Speaking about the launch, Martin Jones, Managing Director at TradeHelp, said: “We’re extremely proud to be introducing BuyTrade to the industry. While there are single-merchant search solutions available on the market, this is the first software that combines a product finder and multi-merchant ordering platform, and is absolutely free to use – there is no catch!
“We want to help those in the trade to provide a first-class, seamless service to their customers – and a key part of this is having the right part for the job, when they need it. With BuyTrade, they can find the right product, at the right price, right now.”
Registering to use BuyTrade is designed to be quick and easy and, for installers with a TradeHelp account, their existing login details can be used. Payment for products can be made via credit/debit cards or on merchant credit accounts.
