The Magnet Group Retools Site To Benefit Distributors
Based in Washington, Mo., the Magnet Group (TMG) announced its Web site has emerged from a design and technology makeover and now includes distributor-driven e-commerce benefits and content. TMG is the parent entity for leading promotional products suppliers Magnet LLC, Innovations by Magnet LLC, Fusion by Benchmark, Benchmark Clocks, Crystal by Benchmark, The Bag Factory, PhoneCard Express and Perfect Line.
The company believes the site’s state-of-the-art infrastructure technology allows the free flow of information between the company’s customer-service and sales staff and promotional product distributors. As a result, distributors have access to live, current data 24 hours a day.
TMG has also invested in TechnoLogo’s digital catalog technology so distributors can work with digital catalogs online in addition to being able to use PDF catalogs. Distributors will also benefit from improved product searches. At the site’s new ideas page, product searches may be conducted by various product categories including: quick ship availability, price busters, think green, and what’s new, and closeouts. After finding a product, distributors can now upload FTP artwork, check order status and track shipments.
CEO of The Magnet Group, Bill Korowitz, recently appointed Jacque McHugh—a TMG sales and service professional since 1996—to the newly created position of e-business manager, further supporting the company’s commitment to ongoing, online sales and service improvements.
