SupplyStream, the web-based platform that aggregates industry products and suppliers into a single website for dealers, has launched an “affiliate program” that offers manufacturer reps a tool to streamline their business along with a recurring commission when they sign up dealers for a SupplyStream account.
In addition, participating reps will have a dedicated account inside SupplyStream where they can manage all their product lines, price columns and orders in one place.
For reps, communicating critical information in real time to their entire dealer base can be very challenging. Much of the industry has been built on antiquated “technology” to distribute pricing and product information, such as PDF’s or pricing binders. With SupplyStream, reps can not only promote real-time pricing, but also save time processing orders and add transparency to the ordering process.
“If you are a rep, you want to be spending as much time as you can demoing and selling products, not processing paperwork, orders, and distributing price sheets.” said Kirk Chisholm, founder and CEO, SupplyStream. “SupplyStream is available at no cost to reps and provides their dealers a state-of-the-art portal and web purchasing experience. Reps love our online catalog because it’s the most efficient way to disseminate useful information to dealers 24/7 while maintaining complete control over the orders.”
“We first learned about SupplyStream at IPRO last October, and to say we were impressed would be an understatement. When we were asked to participate in the Affiliate Pilot Program, we jumped at the opportunity,” said David Humphries, principal, Atlantic Integrated LLC and former IPRO president. “SupplyStream solves problems that we’ve faced in the industry for many years. This solution helps dealers, vendors, and especially reps.”
