CatalogueMaster for Distribution

In distribution, there are a large number of suppliers, and one of the key costs is catalogue management and profit is determined by margin management of the catalogue items.  The problem is that the fast moving items, have the lowest shelf, inventory and logistical costs and are the most competitively prices with the lowest margins, and the slow moving items have better margins and higher inventory and handling costs.

CatalogueMaster allows the automation of the catalogue management for slow moving items, and the ability to provide pass through ordering so that these items can be shipped directly from the supplier.  This increase profit on items that already have better margins and increases sales by making available items that would not be available via a print catalogue route.

A CatalogueMaster customer has increased their range from around 50,000 items to over 150,000 items with significant increases in turnover and improvements in profitability, by passing the website maintenance of the 100,000 new items down to the suppliers and getting direct delivery for these items.

CatalogueMaster works by providing the suppliers with their own @UK PLC e-commerce sites and integration solutions.  These make it easy for the suppliers to improve their product content, and generate additional sales through increasing the product range that they supply.  This benefits both the CatalogueMaster customer and their supplier.
