Rexroth expands popular GoTo focused delivery program
Three years after the original launch of its popular GoTo focused product delivery program, Rexroth announces another significant expansion—in products and capabilities. Originally launched in April 2009 to offer industry-leading delivery times for Rexroth’s most requested drive and control products to help customers build machines faster, the GoTo program aims to help customers streamline processes as well. To speed access to GoTo part numbers and information, Rexroth introduced a new, easy-to-use iPad® app in January: the GoTo Products app for iPad. After just 4 months in the iTunes® app store, the app has just been upgraded to version 2.0, with many new capabilities. With the latest version, users can now locate their nearest distributor for any of the program’s products simply by entering their zip code in the app’s new distributor locator function; alternately, they can
use the device’s built-in GPS and location services. The app returns full-contact information, even driving directions. Naturally, the new version includes the expanded GoTo product range, but also adds new "wish list“ functionality to gather selected part numbers and include them in a pre-formatted email to Bosch Rexroth, a distributor or anyone else the user wishes to share the information with. Expanded social media tools, technical data, helpful videos and more are also a hallmark of GoTo Products app version 2.0. In addition to the new app, Rexroth has added 405 part numbers during this latest program update, bringing the total number of parts in the GoTo program to 3423—an increase of 185% from the initial 1,200 parts in the program at its original launch. The inclusion of many configurable parts expands the offering further with thousands of additional options for customers. The GoTo program features a broad range of Rexroth’s electric drives and controls, hydraulics, pneumatics, linear motion and aluminum framing products. Key new additions to the program are popular components from Rexroth’s VarioFlow Modular Conveyor product line, including a generous collection of both horizontal and vertical curve sections. Several hundred hydraulics products have also been added with this update, as well as new products from all of the other product lines represented in the GoTo program. It’s also worth noting that available shipment quantities have been increased in many cases as well, giving customers more options than ever before under the GoTo program umbrella. As always, Rexroth’s GoTo program provides quick access to product information and reliable delivery lead times that meet or exceed the expectations of the market. Delivery times vary according to specific products selected, but in many cases Rexroth’s GoTo products are shipped as quickly as 24 hours after ordering. Besides the new App, Rexroth’s GoTo quick-reference website has been updated with the latest product information, too: Online resources such as data sheets, dimensions, part numbers, CAD drawings and 3D Solid Models greatly streamline the product selection process. It’s all part of Rexroth’s initiative to be a “go-to” partner for everything needed to build machines better and faster: streamlined access to information, competitive pricing, customer-focused delivery terms and expert applications support.
