Ovenu, the oven valeting franchise specialists, have announced the launch of their new “mobile friendly” website home page designed specifically for browsers using a mobile device.
Rik Hellewell (pictured right), founder of Ovenu said: “With our latest internet statistics showing that over 2,000 visits in the first three weeks of December came via mobile devices, we’ve brought forward our plans and introduced our new-look mobile site earlier than anticipated.”
The new mobile site, www.ovenu.co.uk/mobile, makes it easy for browsers to locate their nearest oven valeting expert via the ‘Postcode locator’, and the National Freephone can be called using the modern ‘click to call’ facility.
Hellewell added: “With mobile devices growing in popularity and to remain comfortably at the forefront of our industry, making these changes to run in parallel with technological advances is the right thing to do. If and when statistics show a shift in trends, the modern day business needs to adopt a proactive approach and move with the times”.
Ovenu have also introduced their QR (Quick Recognition) code, (pictured right).
The QR code can be scanned with any modern hand-held mobile device and will quickly and effortlessly load the appropriate website or webpage designated by the code.
“The QR codes are appearing in all types of media and allow mobile devices to capture a website URL without the prospective browser having to remember a web address. Over the coming weeks and months we shall be incorporating our QR code into our media activity on both local and national levels. We have always embraced technological advances, and the introduction of our QR code, is just another example of our forward thinking ethos,” said Hellewell.
