Every month, DistributorCentral receives the most online product data traffic of any service provider in the industry. There is a reason we’re #1, we generate more than 6 million product views for our suppliers every 30 days from the DC research tool, 8,000 e-commerce distributor websites, and our live product data feed used by other providers such as commonsku, PromoCorner, and Web Jaguar.
Our mission at DistributorCentral is to be the most accurate solution in the industry; for an end user to accurately order products from a distributor’s website, and for the distributor to create accurate orders to the supplier.
Accurate orders all start with accurate and complete product information from the supplier. Suppliers using DC agree to honor their products and prices listed so distributors are assured of having accurate data without having to verify during the selling process.
“The Suppliers that I work with find DistributorCentral to be the easiest system to update, export, and import data for shopping cart functionality and accuracy. Our Distributors and Suppliers work as a team to ensure accuracy and report inaccuracies when they are noticed. When a Distributor finds a discrepancy, they have a tool to quickly make a comment and send that over to DistributorCentral. Once received, the Supplier is made aware and is able to correct the item via their Supplier representative,” said Aubrey Weaver, Senior Account Manager.
DistributorCentral allows suppliers total access to their products and pricing. The Product Editor has been designed for ease of use to make real-time updates. Suppliers can also export product, option and choice data into an excel format to update and upload. “From the time the updates are received and started, we are able to complete the import in just a matter of minutes,” said Heather Windler, Support Specialist. Most suppliers only need to export their product data though for annual pricing update purposes.
Besides hosting product data and pricing, we have also been working with suppliers to help them be able to share inventory data electronically. This is another way how we are committed to providing enhanced technology and integration solutions that in turn, support our mission.
