Bosch Rexroth adds new functionality, better search capabilities with updated GoTo Products mobile app
Bosch Rexroth Corporation Posted 08/28/2013New version 3.0 of the popular Rexroth GoTo Products app features several enhancements to give users better access to thousands of ready-to-deliver GoTo products from the company’s focused delivery program
The newest version of the Bosch Rexroth GoTo Products app for the iPhone® and iPad® is now available at the iTunes® App store, giving users more functionality and better search capabilities for selecting drive and control products listed in the company’s GoTo Focused Delivery Program.
The GoTo Focused Delivery Program offers industry-leading delivery times for the company’s most requested drive, control and motion products, with several thousand items currently listed for availability.
The Bosch Rexroth GoTo Products app offers a convenient, up-to-date resource for project managers, engineers and specifiers who need ready access to the company’s GoTo product information and specifications.
The updated app version 3.0 includes several enhancements, such as new cart functionality that allows users to quickly create and e-mail order inquiries for specific products; the ability to generate and e-mail custom “wishlists” for frequently needed parts; and up-to-date price listings for all Rexroth GoTo products.
Other updates include improved searching for parts with the ability to sort part numbers, and improvements to the locator function to show sales locations with enhanced listings for Rexroth distributors. GoTo Products app users can also create custom resource libraries by saving videos, links or images from the app in a My GoTo Resources area. Videos and links can also be shared on Facebook or Twitter directly from the app, for those who are using iOS 5.0 or later.
Several hundred new products were recently added to the GoTo program, many in the area of industrial and mobile hydraulics. Included are popular directional valves, Rineer motors, A10VO variable displacement pumps and newly offered configurations for both fixed and variable displacement motors. Rexroth’s recent factory expansion in Fountain Inn, SC played a key role in the addition of the mobile hydraulics products to the GoTo program.
GoTo Products app users can retrieve all of the product updates instantly by using the app’s sync-on-demand feature. In addition, GoTo product updates are reflected in all of the latest catalogs at www.boschrexroth-us.com/goto.
Bosch Rexroth has been expanding its portfolio of mobile apps. A new Fit4Filter app for both iPhone and Android™ platforms is also available. For users of hydraulic equipment, the app is a useful tool to help find replacement hydraulic filter elements that are listed in the GoTo program and/or available through www.amazon.com.
