SupplyStream, the web-based platform that aggregates industry products and suppliers into a single website for dealers, has officially launched the paid version of its dealer purchasing platform after nearly two years of quiet development and a full year of beta testing.
SupplyStream touts the industry’s most comprehensive product catalog and simplest proposal tool, integrated into a “first-of-its-kind” purchasing website developed specifically for the custom integrator. The SupplyStream launch follows the recent acquisition of the inventory sharing platform, Invenshare.com, as well as the recent additions of Lawrence Davis as vice president of business development and industry icon Joe Piccirilli as a member of their Board of Directors.
SupplyStream provides a complete platform for dealers to build and view their unique product catalog from a comprehensive database of industry suppliers. The catalog includes real time product information, pricing, and availability from their existing suppliers, and allows dealers to generate proposals and send purchase orders to all of their vendors from one place.
The subscription service gives Dealers access to their own unique product catalog with product pricing, the web based proposal tool, and the ability to send unlimited proposals, all for $29 per month. The official launch promotion will also allow dealers to pre-pay a year for only $299 (a $49 savings). Dealers get the first 30 days free, and it takes about 30 seconds to sign up and get started.
“Three years of development seems like a long time, but it was critically important for us to bring a platform to market that delivers everything we promised,” explained SupplyStream founder and CEO Kirk Chisholm. “We are extremely thankful for the thousands of dealers who have signed up during our Beta, and the suppliers who have embraced our platform and agreed to provide data feeds.”
SupplyStream has attracted some prominent talent over the past year, including Josh Willits, founder of Invenshare.com; industry veteran Lawrence Davis, previously with Atlantic Technology, Artison, Monster Cable and Bang & Olufsen; and former Avad Director Joe Piccirilli as an advisor and board member.
Chisholm continued, “We’ve assembled a world class team, and built what we believe is a world class product. We’re thrilled to bring it to market and officially launch it to the industry.”
