Lankatiles launches app packed with unique features
July 21, 2017 – Lankatiles, the pioneers in wall and floor tile manufacturing in Sri Lanka, recently launched a tile app under its brand name Lankatiles, one of the first comprehensive apps by a Sri Lankan tile manufacturer.
The app makes tile purchasing a smooth experience, providing customers and builders with a look and feel of the myriad tiling options available, even before they step into a tile store. The Lankatiles app can be freely downloaded for Android, iOS and Windows operating systems.
The app features Lankatiles’ entire collection of wall and floor tiles and provides users the option to bookmark favourite tiles and browse the entirety of its tile collection. The app’s Tile Visualizer feature allow customers to apply a preferred tile design to a virtual wall/floor, enabling them to better picture the end-result of a tiled space.
Moreover, customers can also access a database of over 3,500 trained tilers around the island with ease. The app also provides the contact details of local showrooms and international distributors as well as news about media releases and special promotions or discounts that Lankatiles may have on offer.
“We have been in the business for over four decades and we understand that building a house or a commercial building or embarking on renovations can sometimes be a cumbersome process. Lankatiles has always kept abreast with trends and changes in the market and this app was launched to cater to the changing needs and wants of time-strapped customers and alleviate any stress or building woes a customer may have. With nearly 30% internet penetration in Sri Lanka, 4.90 million social media users and 26.36 million mobile subscriptions as of 2016, we decided to launch the app in order to streamline the process of choosing the correct tiles for your dream home, making tile shopping an enjoyable and stress-free experience,” said Lanka Walltiles PLC and Lanka Tiles PLC Managing Director Mahendra Jayasekera, commenting on the significance of the Lankatiles app for the Sri Lankan market.
