TORONTO, ON (10/2) – commonsku and DistributorCentral have announced a strategic partnership that will offer DistributorCentral’s product database as part of commonsku’s cloud-based CRM and Order Management solution.
commonsku has linked its integrated CRM and Order Management system with the centralized product database hosted by DistributorCentral. The mutually beneficial action gives commonsku subscribers access to an expanded array of product information and resources while at the same time extends the reach of suppliers’ product information as supported by DistributorCentral.
“Distributors looking to conduct business on commonsku now have all the more cause to do so with the integration of DistributorCentral,” said Mark Graham, CEO and co-founder of commonsku. “Having additional product search options integrated into commonsku saves distributors from re-keying product information into their presentations and orders.
Since it launched last year, distributors have used commonsku to process more than 11,000 orders and $20 million in sales. It has also been the stage for thousands of conversation threads that bring together suppliers and distributors in an industry-exclusive setting (i.e., no end users allowed). Distributors and suppliers looking to get started on commonsku, can do so for free by creating their industry profile at www.commonsku.com.
“We’ve watched as commonsku has steadily gained momentum and influence,” said Jason Nokes, President of DistributorCentral. “DC’s integration with this innovative platform makes supplier product information available to a technically savvy audience that openly networks with their industry peers.”
“DistributorCentral is quick and responsive,” Graham said. “Since the roll-out we’ve had a lot of positive feedback about the platform’s simplified tools, not having to rekey and being able to find products based on keyword search rather than item number.”
Nokes said the integration ensures subscribers of both commonsku and DistributorCentral will benefit as the companies continue to grow and innovate.
“We have integrated two dynamic platforms that place a high priority on keeping pace with the ever-changing dynamics of this industry,” Nokes said. “The importance of helping connect distributors with accurate product data as provided by suppliers cannot be overstated.”
