Over the last 12 months Festive has embraced new technology in order to keep pace with the demands of our growing business, this has included an iPad ordering system as well as new scanners for our mobile showroom which connect directly with the iPad.
This new technology allows us to sell products based on live stock information and once the order is complete email a picture quote directly to you so that you have am immediate record of the order.
In 2013 we are enhancing our website with a customer ordering system to allow you to view and select products for ASAP or specified delivery dates. With this new facility you will be able to log in and place orders for stock, again based on live information so that you can top up stock levels during the selling season.
We are currently working to update this with our new 2013 products and will let you know when it becomes available…..
