Bosch Rexroth’s New GoTo Products iPad App Provides All-in-One Digital Resource for GoTo Focused Delivery Program
Bosch Rexroth Corporation Posted 03/06/2012
New GoTo Products iPad App combines all GoTo Focused Delivery Program catalogs into touchscreen-driven Apple iPad App for faster, easier access to GoTo product information.
Bosch Rexroth enhances the efficiency and value of the company’s expanding GoTo Focused Delivery Program with a powerful new tool for Apple iPad® users: The Products iPad App.
Now available from the GoTo Products iPad App page on the iTunes® app store, the new App takes all the advantages of Rexroth’s GoTo Focused Delivery Program and combines them into one easy-to-use iPad App.
All GoTo program product catalogs, comprising more than 3000 linear motion, hydraulic, pneumatic, electric drives and controls and tightening systems products, have been combined into one digital resource. The GoTo Products iPad App offers a convenient, up-to-date resource for project managers, engineers and other personnel on the go who need ready access to product information and specifications.
The App makes full use of the Apple iPad’s advanced capabilities, with graphical menus and user-friendly touchscreen control that make it easy to access specific details on in-demand Rexroth products for manufacturing, automation and machinery engineering. Users can search by product category, by selecting from a master product directory, or through the App’s built-in search tools.
Detailed product pages include all up-to-date material from the print catalogs: technical data, dimension and specification tables, product visuals and other information. The App also includes video clips explaining key features of various Rexroth technologies, such as linear motion systems and hydraulics.
Users can bookmark favorite products for faster access. They can also build product lists with a few finger-taps, then e-mail the list to their preferred distributors or Rexroth to inquire about availability, pricing or shipment schedules
The GoTo Products iPad App also includes built-in access to Bosch Rexroth social media resources, including the company’s Facebook page, Twitter feeds and its YouTube channel, providing additional product information and technical material such as case studies, training videos and product demonstrations.
The GoTo Focused Delivery Program was created to make Bosch Rexroth‘s most popular high-performance drive, motion and control products readily available to OEMs, systems integrators and end-users. Most products are available for delivery with market-best lead times, and many products ship within three days of ordering. The success of the program has led to its ongoing expansion, increasing the number of products offered by 145 percent in three years.
