Fisher Scientific in Apple's Top 50 free business appsIt is just a few months since we launched our new iPhone app and we are very excited by the response so far.

The app is revolutionising the service we offer to our customers with its slick interface and super-fast ordering capability.

Soon after its release the app achieved Top 50 status in Apple’s ‘Top Free Business Apps’ and was crowned as ‘New and Noteworthy’ by iTunes. We are the first to use B2B e-commerce in our field, so to receive recognition from the technology industry big hitters is high praise indeed.

So what’s next? Well it’s over to our customers for their feedback. The response from those who are using the app will be crucial to its ongoing development and ensure that we continue to lead innovation in this field.

If you are a customer who is using (or would like to use) the new Fisher Scientific iPhone app then get in touch. For those of you who are already up and running, let us know what you think. Please contact us via Facebook or Twitter.

We love to hear your feedback and it will help us to ensure that the app continues to go from strength to strength.

And of course, if all this is news to you then you will want to watch the app in action.
