The TechBox app from Grant UK has been updated with an improved layout, new features and additional functionality. It continues to be the app for heating engineers to turn to for all of Grant’s product manuals – but it now has a new look and enhanced navigation.
Grant UK first launched its TechBox app nearly five years ago, serving installers and heating engineers as a useful electronic resource for all of Grant’s product manuals, both current and archive. This latest app update is the biggest yet and has involved completely freshening up the TechBox’s styling to be in line with Grant UK’s other digital platforms. With more imagery, improved pathways to find documents and more structured categorisation, the TechBox is now much easier to navigate and use.
Users who download the updated app will now be able to select the content most relevant to them. The TechBox now invites users to select the product categories that they want to download. This can be any combination of categories, for example ‘Oil’, ‘Air Source Heat Pumps’ and ‘Cylinders’, and additional categories can be added or deleted at any time, allowing engineers to make the TechBox bespoke to their needs.
The TechBox content will also be more up to date than before. Previously, content updates were made when the app itself underwent an update on the stores. Now, Grant UK will be able to manage document updates directly through the app so the latest manual changes will be live on the TechBox more quickly. When a manual update is made, users will be notified via a number icon in ‘Settings’. They then simply need to navigate to ‘Manage’ and select ‘Update’ which will allow the TechBox to update all the changes within the product categories downloaded.
In addition, the TechBox has a brand new document search functionality and a ‘Favourites’ option. If there is a PDF download that an engineer refers to regularly, they can save it as a favourite which will allow them direct access to the file by clicking ‘Favourites’ in the app footer.
Amongst all of these new features, the principal purpose of the TechBox remains the same – to be an electronic hub full of technical information supporting Grant’s products. All the manuals are available to download as PDFs, can be accessed while users are online or offline, and the current and archived documents are now much clearer to find. The app continues to be straightforward in nature and, following this latest update, it is hoped that installers will find the TechBox better than it has ever been before.
“Last year, we carried out some research amongst our G1 installer network to see what they liked about the TechBox app and which features they felt could be improved,” comments Paul Wakefield, Grant UK’s Managing Director. “We fed these comments into this latest update and we hope that installers and service engineers will find the TechBox even more user-friendly and useful when out on the road.”
