Announcing the Launch of the P.C. Richard & Son Mobile Site!

Posted by on June 17, 2010 at 12:39 pm

When you’re on the go and need to look up your account, product information, stock at a particular store, or the current price of an item, check out our newly-launched mobile site! To access this new mobile-enabled site, visit www.pcrichard.com on your mobile device and you will be automatically redirected. This has just been launched today and our internal web team has worked very hard on it.

“It was an ongoing project on-and-off for about two months,” said our programmer, Steve. “My favorite feature is the in-store inventory lookup, which is currently unique to the mobile site and not on our full site right now.” When I asked him about his goals when creating the mobile site, he said, “I tried to keep the same functionality and really parallel the regular site. It’s  a different perspective of the website you’re used to seeing, just on a smaller resolution.”

The only major difference of our full site versus this mobile site is that the mobile site is not currently commerce enabled, but Steve has integrated an “order by phone” tab so you can conveniently place an order from anywhere. Try it out and tell us what you think!

Here’s a brief overview of our great new mobile site:

When you first get to the site, you’ll notice how easy it is to navigate. You can search for a particular product, browse categories, or see what hot deals we have available for the week. You can also log in to your account, check the status of an order, track a delivery or service, sign up for our e-mail newsletter (hint: if you’re a new subscriber, you’ll get a $15 off $100 or more coupon if you do), and a contact us button to dial our toll-free 877 number.

This is the “browse by category” page. As you can see, we have everything in our regular site’s catalog here and ready to browse. These categories are also broken down into sub-categories, which are sometimes then even broken down into further categories. For example, Appliances and Vaccuums can bring you to Air Conditioners, which then can direct you to Window Air Conditioners. It’s after that that you can view all of the products we have available for your specific needs.

Here’s a sample of products you’d find under the category you choose. You can view a short description, the model number, amount of product reviews and the current low price we’re offering.

Once you select a particular product, can see more information, customer reviews, features and available warranties. You can also e-mail the details to you or a friend, order by phone, or check the stock of a store near you.

If you wish to check the current stock of a store near you, click “find in store” on the product page and enter your zip code. You’ll be presented with a list of stores in your area, their address, phone number and inventory level, and how many miles away they are.

If you need more information about a store, including a map and the services they offer, you can access a profile page for each location on the “stores” tab.

Another page you should make a point to check out is the “hot deals” section, which is accessible right from the homepage. These deals are constantly changing and you can save a great deal of money every week!

Also, don’t forget that you can also manage your account from the mobile site. Think of it as your personal P.C. Richard & Son assistant!

Again, this is a general overview of the features included on our mobile site, but you should really check it out for yourself. Keep us in mind the next time you’re comparison shopping or need extra details on a product! You can access the site by typing www.pcrichard.com into your mobile phone’s browser and you will be automatically redirected.
