Parker Merchanting launches new website

Published:  14 November, 2013

Parker Merchanting has launched its new website - www.parker-direct.com - featuring an online store with instant access to products and assistance.

Peter Swain, commercial and marketing manager from Parker Merchanting, said: “The new site has been re-designed and rebuilt utilising the latest web standards and technology. This significant investment will allow us to deliver an even better service to our customers, giving them full access to over 6,500 product lines, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Customers will be able to view live stock availability so they can order with confidence knowing that the products they wish to purchase are in stock.

“The new website makes the user journey all in all, more efficient, easier to navigate and accessible with easy search facilities, web order history and bespoke customer log-ins – delivering the right product, to the right place at the right time.”

Some of the new features from the website include: order before 5.00pm for next day delivery, free next day delivery (on orders over £50), ‘Click and Collect’ from your local Parker Merchanting branch. ‘Live Help’ for immediate assistance from one of the company’s PPE consultants is also available on the new platform and now branded clothing can be ordered in four easy steps and within a five day lead time.

“The new website works seamlessly with the branding centre in Dagenham enabling Parker Merchanting to provide work wear solutions and alternate bespoke designs with a fast turnaround,” added Mr Swain.
