SupplyHog recently launched a redesigned site with a more streamlined look and feel and new features created to further their mission to better connect manufacturers and distributors with their customers.
What’s new? An automated signup process makes it easier than ever for manufacturers, distributors, and sales representatives to become a part of the SupplyHog community.
In addition, SupplyHog is now offering a Free 30 Day Trial across all membership plans (with no credit card required). New customers can now register and create a profile without any risk or obligation.
Once they signup, a SupplyHog team member with contact them ASAP to set up their storefront and input their products. They do the heavy lifting for you After proving out the model and selling millions of dollars worth of products in all 50 states, the company has begun working toward its original goal: a SaaS service that better connects building material manufacturers/vendors and their customers. SupplyHog now offers the tools, platform, and expertise they have developed to construction product manufacturers and vendors.
SupplyHog aims to have every step of the building materials purchasing process online. We build corporate storefronts for manufacturers, who supply us with the most uptodate
information about their products. In addition to linking to each of a manufacturer’s distributors to their corporate storefront, highquality vendor
storefronts and product pages are built for each distributor based on their feedback.
Basically, a DIYer or contractor can find a manufacturer they trust, a distributor in their area, a product they like, or any combination of the above, in one place. After that, they can talk to a sales rep, submit a quote, or purchase online, directly from vendors they trust.
No other ecommerce, web design, or online marketplace offers the dedicated, construction industry specific tools and support that SupplyHog proudly provides.
What problems does SupplyHog solve? For distributors :
Distributors typically do not have the time nor the funds to develop and completely maintain ecommerce storefronts, and because of that they have no platform for their unique voice in the industry. SupplyHog builds and maintains fullyfeatured
ecommerce storefronts for a portion of the cost of just one website
redesign. And using SupplyHog’s communication and storefront management tools, distributors can highlight the personality of their store and their employees.
For manufacturers : Manufacturers currently have no way to consistently push customers through to the sales process at one of their distributors. And if a customer does end up researching a manufacturer product on a distributor’s website, these distributors typically do not display products according to brand standards.
Finally, acquiring new vendors in unproven markets is costly and time consuming, necessitating long phone calls and extensive travel plans to visit face to face.
With SupplyHog, manufacturers can push customers through the sales process, control their brand image on all distributor storefronts, and attract new vendors with the
market data and metrics that our online marketplace can provide.
For sales reps : Currently sales rep have to call on the customers, visit them in person, and draft quotes and product information through a variety of platforms just to reach a potential lead. And obtaining new customers in existing markets (and especially in new markets if they’re trying to expand) is another time consuming proposition. A SupplyHog profile allows a sales rep, acting independently or within their company, to personally connect with customers and put a human face to the e-commerce process. Sales reps can blast messages to multiple customers, highlight their field of expertise and establish themselves as a voice of authority.
