Distributor Support Solution
Sharing a Manufacturer's Catalog with Distributors Online
Are you printing and distributing hundreds of catalogs that are obsolete in a matter of months due to continuous updates and expansion in your product line?
You are not alone. Currently, many OEMs print catalogs to give to distributors; the distributor then markets the product to the end user. OEMs rely on distributors to convey their products properly and to use these catalogs to update the distributors' websites or marketing materials. Ecreativeworks has a product that will help you distribute your content online in an electronic format. Our Distributor Support capabilities allow the OEM to control the information presented to end users â€“ all online. Instead of printing thousands of catalogs that quickly become outdated, learn more regarding Ecreativeworks content syndication for distributors.
As a manufacturer, sharing product information has just gotten easier. An OEM can release a new product in days versus months, update a product specification in a matter of minutes instead of weeks, and provide ongoing marketing pieces to distributors efficiently. Increase your end margin by establishing a strong online relationship with your distributors. Ecreativeworks builds custom applications that allow your distributors to sell, quote, or configure your products, all online. Our application is designed to syndicate content across hundreds of distributors' websites and allows the manufacturer to control which product lines are being sold by each distributor. Sharing your catalog has never been this easy!
Sharing your catalog with your distributors made easy - build an online relationship with content syndication from your site to your distributors!
How Does Content Syndication Benefit a Manufacturer?
As an industrial website resource, Ecreativeworks helps manufacturers move ahead of their competition and become more competitive online. Expensive print catalogs are slowly moving into non-existence as customers are turning to online descriptions and product specs to find what they need. We convert your costly paper catalogs into an electronic format that allows you to quickly share product specifications with your distributors. Distributor support benefits for manufacturers include:
- Syndicate online catalog(s) for use on distributors' sites.
- Improve your products' speed to market by adding new products to your distributors' sites.
- Control which products distributors show on their websites by managing the syndicated catalog through your master site.
- Offer a product configurator that distributors can use on their site to make it easier for customers to choose and order the right products.
- Sell more by providing the latest product specifications to your distributors' websites, eliminating the distributors' need to add the product on their own.
This puts the manufacturer ahead of their competition by providing an efficient way to present products to the end user. Ecreativeworks Distributor Support makes it easy for distributors to sell a manufacturer's products, and because the manufacturer controls the catalog content, the information will always be accurate and up to date.
What are the Benefits for Distributors?
A master site is created for the manufacturer that includes all their catalog information. Ecreativeworks then builds syndicated sites for distributors which are generated from content provided by the master site. The distributor now has access to a manufacturer’s complete catalog, or to information on the specific product lines they sell. Benefits to distributors include:
- Access to the manufacturer's complete online catalog.
- Ability to maintain their original industrial website design.
- Online exposure is improved by providing product specs and descriptions for customers.
- Distributors keep and improve customer relations, as all orders and requests for quotes remain on the distributor's site. Currently, a distributor can lose a sale or a quote as a customer takes a link back to a manufacturer's website and leaves the original site they were visiting.
- Distributors can provide private pricing to specialized customers if applicable.
- Distributors don't have to maintain the product specs and descriptions.
