SMS Concrete Order Confirmation
DIGITAL SMS CONFIRMATION SERVICE
As part of Boral's commitment to continuous improvement, we are excited to introduce our digital SMS multi-order confirmation service.
This follows on from an initial trial earlier this year where we implemented single order confirmation for Customers who opted in to receive the sms link to confirm their order.
Further development of multi orders confirmation has now been finalised and will be offered to any customer who places a concrete order in ‘Will Call’ status.
Implementing this level of digital automation will reduce calls to our Service Centre which will result in reduced wait times.
On this page you will find an instructional video to assist you to navigate the Digital SMS Order Confirmation Services and related FAQs.
We welcome and value your feedback.
