Evesham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 10, 2012 -- This achievement marks the halfway point in the Toolbox marketing team's effort to upload a 3000 strong catalogue of Trend products. The team has certainly been working hard over the past few weeks and reaching this number has been a goal for them. However, there is no time to relax as the team, led by Scott Morris, eyes the full 3000.
Scott Morris, E-Commerce Manager, said: "It was always going to be a big job and everyone involved knew that from the start but we're committed to offering a wide range of products and there's certainly a demand for these Trend branded routing products. This is an important addition to the website if we're to continue to grow the Toolbox name. The guys here have worked really well to reach this milestone but now the hard work really begins and I know no one will take their eye off the goal." The range of Trend products has been delivered onto the Toolbox website efficiently, integrating well with the existing site. With the customer in mind, each item is categorised and includes a full description and specification as well as appropriate images and technical drawings.
James Cook, Website Administrator said: "Obviously with a task like this we need to work quickly to get the products online but we do take great care to provide accurate information and descriptions of each product, sorting them into the appropriate category to make it easy for the customer to find what they're looking for.
We want the customer to feel comfortable knowing exactly what they're getting when they click 'buy', that's why we put so much effort into getting the products looking good online."
These sentiments were shared by new addition to the team, Tim Hodge who said: "This was the first task I was set in my new role and straight away I realised it was a big job. It's hard work and it takes a long time but it'll be a really significant achievement once all the Trend products are there on the website."
The Toolbox marketing team are now back to work on the second half of this mammoth task and are looking forward to its successful completion which should be before Christmas 2011.
