Total Bitumen is now offering updates to its online bitumen ordering platform. The improvements are said to simplify the purchasing process and provide greater management information.
The revamped Bitumen Online platform has been developed with a simple design to improve the user experience, while new functionality enables customers to track deliveries, monitor pricing information and set real-time pricing alerts.
Once signed into the site, which works across all devices, users need only make four clicks to make an order. This allows bitumen purchases to be made in under two minutes. Prices are displayed once the delivery point and product grade are selected.
The new platform also enables users to view and export reports from a dashboard so they can monitor the bitumen market in real time, view their order history and track live orders from purchase to delivery and reduced duplication.
The addition of ‘cancellation reason’ now gives more information for plant managers to use when monitoring ordering patterns on their sites.
Chris Milligan, head of bitumen sales at Total UK, said: “Our new platform features a clean and simple design and new features and functionality that make it quicker and easier for customers to purchase bitumen. The updates are already being well received by our customers who have moved over to the new ordering platform following a seamless transition and no disruption to service.”
Bitumen Online is available to any bitumen user authorised by Total UK – Bitumen Division. Anyone with bitumen purchasing responsibility can join including plant managers, buyers, procurement specialists, finance directors, and managing directors.
The platform can be used to purchase bitumen for roads including hot, warm and cold mix applications, Emulsis binders for surface treatments, and bitumen for industrial applications.
