Trade Only Launches GATEWAY Analytics Program
Specialist cloud-based software provider to the promotional product industry Trade Only has announced the release of Trade Only GATEWAY, a detailed analytics program for suppliers listing their product catalog on Trade Only's distributor solutions.
Using GATEWAY, suppliers can review which distributors are actively reviewing their range, their most popular products and how they're being found, generating a hot prospect list and quantifying their return on investment.
Suppliers can also delete, edit and add products, ensuring that their data is both up to date and inclusive of all colors, sizes and additional cost information. Distributors can see when a product was last updated, and can quote their customers with confidence, reducing the necessity to double-check pricing information every time.
GATEWAY also facilitates Special Price Lists; suppliers can choose individual or groups of distributors to provide special pricing for, e.g., EQP, EQP less a percentage, NQP, NQP less a percentage, or x-percent off all price breaks. These rules can be applied to all products, selected categories, or individual products, enabling suppliers to provide incentives to buy and/or seasonal promotions.
"Having worked closely with our supplier partners in developing GATEWAY, we knew we needed more than a simple statistics package," said Chris Yaw, vice president of sales for Trade Only. "GATEWAY functions both as a lead generator, product editor and special price list creator, and in each area it's easy to use and interpret. The great feedback we've received from suppliers suggests that GATEWAY is exactly what they needed from Trade Only."
