At Cutting edge with app launch

Have your say

CUTTING & Wear, which manufactures tools and materials for the oil and gas sector, has launched its own app so customers can order products wherever they are.

Ecclesfield-based Cutting & Wear has worked with Sheffield web and marketing specialists Arkom to produce the app for iPhones and iPads. The Cutting & Wear app, which has just gone live on the Apple store, contains the complete range of the company’s standard products, including product codes and a search facility.

It also has an enquiry feature to allow customers to request a quotation and has been designed to work even when they have no mobile signal; storing quote requests until the signal has been restored.

More than half of Cutting & Wear’s turnover, which is expected to reach £9m this year, is through export, with the biggest market in the Middle East. The company employs 70 people.
