Office Depot has expanded its mobile offerings and has launched an iPhone and Android app available for free download on iTunes and the Android Market.
The new apps are part of the company’s broader “Office Depot Anywhere” strategy aimed at helping people show via a variety of mobile platforms and m-commerce sites.
The apps allow users to browse and buy products from their mobile phone, read product revies, find a store location, access order history, track shipments, scan a product barcode in store for detailed descriptions, reviews and pricing.
The Office Depot iPhone and Android apps also allows users to “follow” their mobile shopping cart across multiple devices.
“We know our customers are busy and sometimes the only time they have to shop for their office needs is between meetings, in the airport, or from the road,” said Barry Litwin, Vice President of E-Commerce for Office Depot.
“The advanced functionality of Office Depot’s new mobile applications for the iPhone and Android-based phones provide our customers with a best-in-class experience, including the ability to check out and purchase products without being redirected to another site outside of the mobile application.”
Office Depot says it plans to add more mobile platforms in the future, including BlackBerry and Microsoft operating systems, as well as tablet devices.
