TB Access® Web Portal Now Available Through Smartphone Application 

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan. 15, 2013 – T&B Access®, a web portal on www.tnbaccess.tnb.com for Thomas & Betts’ distributors, now is accessible with a smartphone application through the entry page m.tnb.com/tba, protected with the distributor’s existing T&B Access® user name and password.

“We conducted a survey of our distributors in December 2011,” said Chris Castleberry, vice president of marketing at Thomas & Betts, “and more than 400 respondents requested a smartphone version of T&B Access®, so this application was developed to serve our distribution partners. We believe that this is the first smartphone application of its kind in the industry. In addition to the application, we developed an online tutorial to instruct users about the various features.

The application is available in English, French and Spanish. It provides access to only those features and functions on T&B Access® that can be reviewed in a small-screen environment. The application is for mobile phones only: the Internet site for T&B Access® is recommended for tablet and iPad users.

The application provides multi-branch accessibility for distributors with more than one location. Search capability includes branch number, purchase order number and quote number, among other capabilities. Information about product price and availability from stock is available, as well as access to all open and recently closed orders. Other functions include a cross reference between Thomas & Betts catalog numbers and equivalent catalog numbers with other manufacturers. It also includes access to My T&B, a menu of information that is proprietary to the user’s company.  

For more information about the new T&B Access® mobile-phone application from Thomas & Betts, please call (800) 238-5000.
