Johnstone Supply Inc.’s mobile application now features a barcode scanner available for Apple and Android devices.

The new barcode-scan function allows customers to quickly place orders by logging in and pointing their mobile device’s camera at a specific product barcode for scanning. The product is then placed directly into the customer’s shopping cart or saved to a product list from a preferred, participating Johnstone store. The barcode-scan feature also allows customers to find prices and availability of each product.

“Saving our customers time and increasing order accuracy has been the driving force behind all of our new smart device and mobile computing services,” said Andrew Verey, Johnstone’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The new barcode scanning tool makes finding a product when you are out in the field easier than ever before, and instant access to real-time pricing and inventory is a huge advantage. Along with, of course, our industry-best, 60,000-plus parts and supplies catalog.”

The mobile app’s barcode feature is available for download at iTunes and Google Play stores.
