Just in case this silly “smart phone” phenomenon is more than a passing fad, we now offer “mobile-friendly” versions of commonly used pages of the WarehouseTWO website.
Our new “mobile-friendly” SEARCH and MULTI-SEARCH pages are ideal for field sales people. While in front of their customers, they can browse the millions of dollars of inventory available from peer distributors. “Yes, Mr. Customer. I can get that for you by tomorrow” will be a more frequently spoken response to face-to-face customer inquiries. :-)
Here is a quick tour of our website's "mobile-friendly" pages:
When you point your small-screen mobile device, such as a “smart phone”, to the WarehouseTWO website, you will be presented with our new “responsive design” home page
Public pages are accessible by tapping on the “mobile-friendly” header menu.
Logging into the website will bring you to our “mobile-friendly” SEARCH page. This new page format is available to users associated with member accounts at level 3, level 4 or level 5. Level 1 and level 2 users will see our desktop version of the SEARCH page. (Click here to learn more about our membership levels and monthly subscription fees.)
SEARCH settings are accessible by tapping on the SETTINGS button.
Items found in a SEARCH result are listed vertically. Details about each item, such as “Currency”, “SRC” (“source”) and “Rel” (“related item) are available in pop-windows accessible by tapping on links in each search result.
Tapping on any item that appears in the SEARCH result redirects to the "Source Detail" page.
SEND EMAIL TO SELLER Template
Scroll down the "Source Detail" page to find the “SEND EMAIL TO SELLER” button. Tap on this button to open the appropriately populated email template.
Other website features and functions are available by tapping on the MENU pop-up window. Of these options listed in the menu, only MULTI-SEARCH is “mobile-friendly”. All other pages are intended to be viewed on a large screen, such as with a desktop computer.
