According to proprietary research from Lowe’s, nearly one in three Pros (32%) ranked retailer-specific mobile apps and built-in tools among the top three innovations with the greatest potential to improve their job. Additionally, 61% of Pros expect retailers to help them shop quickly, so they can get back to the job.
With this in mind, the home improvement retailer has launched Lowe's MVPs Business Tools, available now via Lowes.com and the Lowe's mobile app. Pros can use the new tech to simplify their resupply process with easy order placement and tracking.
App and website features include:
- Online Order Quoting: Pros can build and receive quotes for orders via the app, guaranteed for seven days and with no product exclusions — saving Pros time that’s usually spent in-store.
- Buy It Again Feature: Pros can reorder frequently purchased items via the Buy it Again prompt, which can be sorted by frequency, recency, and price of purchase.
- Order Tracking: Makes it easy for Pros to view purchases and track deliveries from a centralized page.
The new suite of tools complements Lowe's existing MVPs Pro Rewards and Partnership Program, which launched in 2022. The program is designed to reward Pro businesses of all sizes with benefits such as Bonus Points earned on select items, paint rewards and more. Silver Tier MVPs Pro Rewards members and above will also be able to unlock savings on eligible orders of $1,500 or more.
"We know that for Pros, time is money. As demands on their time increase, new technologies like the MVPs Business Tools help Pros be more efficient and stay focused on their business," said Tony Hurst, senior vice president, Pro and services. "These enhanced digital features replicate our fast and simple in-store shopping experience so Pros can manage their orders from anywhere – whether that's on the jobsite, at home or out of town."
