CLEVELAND, Ohio – Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has increased the products available within its HoseFinder mobile app, making the mobile app more versatile for selecting and locating critical hoses.
Adding to the some 5,000 products from within the Hose Products Division (HPD) that were originally included in the initial 2010 launch, HoseFinder 3.5’s searchable catalog now includes products from Parker’s Industrial Hose Products Division (IHP) and Parflex Division (PFD), adding more than 357 new products available for purchase. Using the STAMP (Size, Temperature, Application, Media, Pressure) search feature to browse, users can find products by general categories, such as hoses, fittings, and accessories
“Since HoseFinder’s launch four years ago, customers continually share their positive feedback about how easy and efficient the app makes searching for and locating the hoses and fittings they need,” says Bill Sayavich, Parker’s Technology Manager. “We’re pleased to now extend the capabilities of the HoseFinder application to include products from our Parflex and Industrial Hose Products divisions.”
Users can take advantage of HoseFinder’s custom distributor search function, directing them to the closest of Parker’s more than 13,000 worldwide distribution locations. All of Parker’s distributors are highly experienced in fluid conveyance systems and are ready to advise customers on how to keep their equipment performing at the highest possible level.
