MOST TMD TRADE CUSTOMERS should have received notification by now of the imminent changes to their website, tmdistribution.co.uk: this is simply a reminder that the switchover happens this evening, at 6pm, at which point we can say a happy farewell to the old and overstretched STL Distribution site that TMD inherited. If you’ve missed the announcements, however, you can read all about it here:
The new site promises to bring a number of significant changes, perhaps the most important of which is a long overdue reconfigured search engine, alongside improved navigation and product availability information.
Two critical things that won’t be changing are the URL (website address) and your login details: there’s no danger of losing access to the site itself; but whilst your account will be carried over, your order history won’t be, and nor will any orders in the shopping basket. If you wish to keep a record of your order history, you’ll need to login today, before 6pm, and either print it all out or save it in some other format; and if you have an incomplete order in the shopping basket, you’ll need to either finalise it before 6pm (in real terms, think earlier to save overloading the servers at that point) or make a note of the items and re-enter them on the new site later.
It’s too early to say congratulations on a job well done to TMD’s IT wizards: time will tell on that point; but certainly congratulations are due on a job long overdue. I look forward to hearing how it all works out…
