A new on-demand delivery service, SNAP IT, has been launched that enables tradespeople to order spare parts and materials at the click of a button, helping digitise an industry that still uses mainly pen and paper.
From valves, to pumps and even boilers; SNAP IT’s mobile app allows the user to instantly purchase over 60,000 plumbing and heating parts from 50+ retailers including Gas World, Embassy Plumbing, Pimlico Plumbers, E15, Jacobs Plumbing and WMI.
By partnering with wholesalers and specialist independent stores; the fast-growing digital marketplace has a higher probability than any bricks and mortar retailer of successfully fulfilling an order.
During his 15 years as a plumber, SNAP IT founder, Viktor Muhhin, realised multiple challenges for tradespeople and customers. His team wasted hours every week locating or waiting for spare parts, resulting in lost revenue and ultimately longer job completion times. SNAP IT is aiming to change all that by providing an innovative tech solution.
SNAP IT is designed to help tradespeople improve efficiency and increase productivity, resulting in a higher rate of completed jobs and increased annual earnings. It claims an average of two-plus billable hours per day can be saved by eliminating time wasted driving to source parts, finding parking or getting stuck in the city’s heavily congested traffic and of course queuing at stores.
With deliveries made within 30-40 minutes, SNAP IT’s technology aims to achieve quicker repairs, improved customer service, reduced costs and happy customers, who don’t need to wait a week for their hot water to be back in action.
SNAP IT currently operates within the M25 with plans to expand to other key cities across the UK in 2021.
