ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (July 20, 2012)—State Water Heaters has once again demonstrated its commitment to the plumbing contractor with the launch of the State Water Heaters Warranty Check App for Apple’s iPhone and iPad as well as Google’s Android. One of the first of its kind, this unique mobile app enables contractors and plumbers to easily review a water heater’s warranty information in the field.
The free app is designed for use on both commercial and residential State Water Heater models. The State Water Heaters Warranty Check app could not have been released at a more perfect time, as contractors are using smart phone technology on the job now more than ever. A recent Contractor Insight study by Eric Mower + Associates B2B reports that 50 percent of contractors use a smartphone, and 21 percent use an iPad or other tablet device on their jobs.
“The growing popularity of smartphones and tablets in the contractor community has created an opportunity to deliver product information at the point of need” said Matt Southards, senior manager of digital marketing and strategy for State Water Heaters. “As an industry leader, it is important that State Water Heaters provide its contractors with the most current technology.”
Early users of the State Water Heaters Warranty Check app have given the new tool rave reviews for enhancing their service to homeowners who purchase water heaters such as the Premier® Hybrid Electric Heat Pump.
“I was really impressed with the level of information that was provided on the warranties of the heaters,” said Mike Walden, owner of Walden Plumbing in Arnold, Md. “I’ve checked out a couple heaters since I began using the app, and the warranty info just pops right up on my screen. I will definitely use this app in the future on my service related calls.”
“When I checked out that new State Warranty App, I was impressed with its functionality as well as the actual unit information that was provided,” said Bill Harrison, Jr., president of Wilfre Mechanical Co., Inc. in Hebron, Md. “The first unit I checked out was a State Premier Hybrid Electric Heat Pump– this is a really nice tool. It will definitely help me and my service department when it comes to identifying warranty status on water heaters. I’m really glad State provided me with this tool!”
