Trade Customer Management and Wholesale Ordering
A specialised site that streamlines the ordering process for wholesale customers whilst providing product resources and information, including special offers.
The Trade Area system allows for AST to provide an easy to use online ordering facility specially designed for their wholesale customers. Not intended to be used by the consumer, the trade area has been developed with features in mind to allow wholesalers to quickly and easily sell products to likely repeat customers in an efficient fashion.
Trade Ordering Development
Often, wholesalers need to provide supporting material on their products to help their customers market their inventory successfully. The trade area keeps all this information in a single place, including wholesaler special deals and offers, allowing AST’s trade customers a quick, easy to use interface when topping up their stock.
Each of AST’s customers are assigned their own wholesaler account which they use to place orders. AST can then administer their customers by creating price lists per account (or grouping them together into bands). Currency conversions are also configurable, which is important when dealing with wholesalers located overseas.
Order management seamlessly integrates with their current process, including integration into accounts exporting facilities. This means their internal order processing sees no disruption or changes necessary.
AST now benefit from offering their wholesale customers a much streamlined and improved ordering facility without any internal changes.
