Paradigm provides you with maintenance-free online tools that simplifies the process of selling your products throughout your dealer, sales, and distributor network. With Paradigm’s online tools, you can help your outside sales network deliver interactive, engaging content and decision support applications to increase RFQ volume; accelerate their buyer’s decision-making process in your favor; reduce product returns; and create a distinct competitive advantage.
Paradigm has the capabilities to create and customize an array of interactive and engaging modules that feature product configurators, product comparisons, CAD Cam product files, electronic catalogs, calculators, quote carts, and custom portals. Each online sales enablement tool is available with or without a Quote Cart. Because every manufacturer is unique, we customize each tool to align with the nuances of your specific situation and current workflow. Here is an example of our most popular online manufacturer sales tools.
Product configurators enable users to create custom products themselves saving significant time and labor dealing with product specifications and order processing. Product configurators also prevents the incompatible combination of parts, as well as incomplete or inaccurate RFQ specs to minimize delays and potential product returns.
Comparison tools allow users to see detailed side-by-side product specifications, which is especially helpful when evaluating products that are so similar, that the wrong product gets purchased.
Electronic catalog functionality generally includes the ability to find both standard or configured items through category drilldowns, searches, and filters. E-catalogs also allows users to obtain information such as sales sheets, product descriptions, and product images, making it very convenient to gather all needed information from one place. This functionality is especially useful when a company's product line includes both standard and configured items. By integrating an E-catalog with a configurator, a quote or order containing both standard and configurable items can be constructed from a single source.
Quote carts help companies improve the quality of the quotation sent to their customers. Quote carts work complimentary with product configurators, e-catalogs or by themselves like a check out cart but without prices or payment.
Distributor portals can be customized to reflect the unique factors used to manage existing accounts. By offering distributors access to their own personalized portal, business hours can be extended to 24/7. Manufacturers that run lean or have distributors around the world find personalized distributor portals especially helpful. Each portal account is customized to accommodate salient and subtle differences between distributor to maximize sell-through including language; inventory status of past purchases (out-of-stock to running low); order history; special product pricing (by multiplier or even product specific pricing); discount structures; repeat orders; allowable limits, shipping, and payment terms.
It is easier to do business with manufacturers who provide visual, interactive, and engaging sales tools. The benefit of this significant value-added service not only translates to a distinct point of differentiation but a competitive advantage.
