Sponsored news from Business Micros Group:

Shaun McAllister has joined Business Micros Group as Business Development Manager for its ground-breaking TOUCH software platform.

As a highly experienced sales and software specialist, with a career spent with the likes of Pricepoint, Everest and Anglian, Shaun has come on board at the perfect time to support the rollout of the new TOUCH Portal end-to-end online ordering system to fabricators.

His role will be to liaise with all those customers who have already ordered Portal to ensure that the software is successfully integrated into their businesses, and then start promoting the system to the rest of the market.

He will be working closely alongside Richie Thornton, Director at Business Micros Group company The Consultancy, who is coordinating all the technical elements of the rollout.

For Shaun, this was an opportunity too good to turn down. He said: “TOUCH is the solution the market has been waiting so long for in terms of being able to deliver a truly integrated online ordering experience all the way from the homeowner to the fabricator.

“With TOUCH Portal, fabricators can offer a 21st-century commercial e-commerce experience to their installers for probably the very first time. In turn, installers can use the linked TOUCH Vendor lead generation and quoting tool to finally take maximum advantage of the way that so much of the retail buying experience is now conducted online.

“It all comes down to the data of course and being able to get real-time product, availability and pricing updates direct from the factory to the salesman when there are so many variables involved. Business Micros is the only company with the funds required and access to the vast supplier datasets necessary to be able to create a system like Portal, and it’s an incredibly exciting time for me to be involved as the whole platform starts to grow and develop.”

Richie Thornton added: “Now that TOUCH Portal is finally live in the market, we’re investing in the resources we need to make sure that customers can really make the most of it. I think Shaun’s combination of both commercial and retail experience will be a huge benefit to customers as they deploy Portal internally and then roll it out as a powerful new sales tool to their trade customers.”
