How Your Dealer Portal Can Strengthen Your Distributor Relationships

Many manufacturers are turning to dealer portals to connect with their distributors. Dealer portals are a smart option for those trying to cut re-occurring costs and increase dealer revenue. These platforms are a connection point between the two parties conducting trade and include the basics of item pricing, timing, and the financial exchange itself.

A Centralized Hub

A dealer portal can be a centralized hub for all your needs by streamlining operations between distributors and product offerings. A dealer portal offers an efficient way for your distributors to find product availability, pricing, and information on demand.

Technology will never be able to replace the value of people-based relationships, but a portal can free up territory management's time so they can focus more on these relationships and less on administration.

An Informative Dealer Portal

But a portal can’t just be a dumping ground of information. It is vital that your information is easily accessible and provides up-to-date and relevant information. Gone are the days of printed and bound brochures and price books. Distributers don’t have time to waste on sorting through prices lists, product documents, and technical specifications, nor do they have time to wait for someone to get back to them the next day. By this time, they may go to your competitor. This is why having a reliable and informative dealer portal is vital for your business.
