GARDNER, Kansas (December 7, 2015) –DistributorCentral (PPAI: 220404 | UPIC: DC) is proud to announce their integration with a new commonsku (UPIC: C552077) feature called collaborate.
Collaborate is a new, more efficient way for distributors and suppliers to work together inside commonsku. Collaborate helps distributors discover new products faster, and makes it easier for suppliers to find new customers and gain more exposure to their products.
Product data that is maintained on the DistributorCentral platform will automatically feed into the commonsku collaborate tool. This gives suppliers the ability to suggest products via their DistributorCentral catalog without re-keying product or pricing information. Distributors can then add these products to their commonsku presentations, estimates and sales orders with one click.
“DistributorCentral is committed to supplying product data for the entire industry. We support the new commonsku collaborate tool because it is an easy way for our suppliers to generate sales using the product data they already maintain on DC,” said Jason Nokes, President of DistributorCentral.
“We designed commonsku’s software as a way to streamline communication across the promotional products supply chain. Having DistributorCentral data incorporated into collaborate makes it easier for suppliers to add their products right into distributor projects, thus saving everyone time,” said Mark Graham, Chief Platform Officer of commonsku.
Suppliers must be a Supplier PRO member of DistributorCentral for their products to populate into collaborate from the DC database. (Otherwise, they have the option of manually adding them from their commonsku database.) There is no cost for distributor customers to use this feature. If a supplier is not already part of collaborate, they can start a 15 day free trial when invited into a project.
