Earn points on FastenersPlus.com.

E-commerce company, Fasteners Plus, has launched a rewards program, PointsPlus, allowing customers to earn points that can be redeemed toward future purchases on the company’s website.

The internet retailer carries more than 20,000 products, ranging from basic nuts, bolts and washers to more specialized merchandise, such as rivets, wire clips and clamps. Points are earned with each purchase made on the website, and can also be awarded by:

  • Creating an account
    Subscribing to the Fasteners Plus newsletter
    Sending invitations to friends to register at FastenersPlus.com
    Converting invitations to customers
    Converting invitations to sales orders
    Submitting product reviews
    Adding tags to products on the website

Once points have been accumulated, customers can then redeem them at checkout and apply as payment on a future purchase. To kick off the new program, a special “Big Game” promotion running through Feb. 2 awards customers an additional 48 points on all purchases.

Nikki Dudley, vice president of Operations, says the Reward Points program was developed as a way to not only reward loyal customers who purchase from Fasteners Plus, but to also build awareness of the site and promote customer engagement. “While most rewards programs award points on purchases, we wanted to expand ours to include actions such as inviting friends to the site and converting those invitations to sale orders,” Dudley says. “We also hope this program encourages customers to become active on our site by submitting reviews, adding product tags and subscribing to our newsletter.”

FastenersPlus.com was developed in 2012 to target contractors, business owners and consumers planning anything from small home projects to large commercial projects. Flat rate shipping is standard on all orders, and bulk pricing is available on any item by calling the company’s friendly, knowledgeable sales team.

Construction software provider Dexter + Chaney has released a complete equipment management solution for contractors that includes features for preventive maintenance, equipment tracking, and even a mobile app. This new equipment management software works seamlessly with the company’s Spectrum Construction Software, which works completely in the cloud, requiring no software download or specific hardware devices.

Typical investment in construction equipment can be well into the seven-figure range, so saving through better fleet management can result in a significant return on that investment. Spectrum’s new Equipment Management solution gives contractors the tools to gather data and use that data to make maintenance and financial decisions. To design a comprehensive equipment offering, Dexter + Chaney enlisted the expertise and best practices of Dr. Mike Vorster of Virginia Tech.

The latest updates to Dexter + Chaney’s equipment management offerings also include an app that can be downloaded for use on Apple and Android mobile devices. The app allows field staff to easily enter equipment information from the job site and synchronizes automatically with Spectrum Equipment Management.
