Basingstoke, Hampshire United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 29, 2008 -- This type of delivery calendar is very innovative in the underfloor heating sector (although common on larger e-commerce sites). A delivery date calendar sounds easy to develop but is in reality quite complex due to working days, weekends, national holidays etc.; involving a degree of behind-the-scenes programming to set up the non-working delivery days for each year.
With the new delivery calendar, Floor Heating customers now have the choice to buy electric underfloor heating mats or cables online, and arrange a delivery date to suit their lifestyle. For those customers who are also including all their 'heavy goods', like flexible adhesives and levelling compounds, these pallet orders can also select a delivery date from the next day onwards.
Here's how it's done: once the customer has selected the basket of goods for their underfloor heating installation and chosen a delivery option, the Floor Heating webshop drop-down calendar will appear. Customers can now select either the standard next working day delivery service or a date of preference that suits their working patterns. Both options allow a further choice of an additional AM upgrade; there is even the option of a Saturday AM service should that be the only time available to receive the goods.
This development represents a major investment for the company, bringing the online webshop up to what is now expected of a major online retail store. Floor Heating customers can now have complete confidence in ordering online, with the knowledge that the delivery is at a date and time of their own choosing.
