CMS has announced plans to direct more resources into its online sales channel, aiming to bolster revenue generated through its new online store.
Cmsdistribution.com has been optimised to give resellers a hassle-free online trading service and a short, simple signup-to-order process.
As the largest independent distributor of IT data storage products and solutions in the UK and Ireland, CMS Distribution has invested significantly in improving its website and IT infrastructure in a bid to revolutionise purchasing in the channel.
The distributor’s new site is far more than an online catalogue for displaying product information and data sheets; to open an account online takes a few minutes and for registered resellers the site offers direct access and integration into the company’s SAP ERP system. This means they benefit from live, up-to-the-minute stock availability and tiered pricing. Online customers will also be offered exclusive product deals via email..
CMS services thousands of VARs, resellers and consultants from multi-nationals to smaller, local IT companies, all of which will have 24/7 trade only access to its flexible automated online service.
Marketing manager Alexandra Stefanovich commented: “We’re really pleased with the new website for CMS Distribution, which greatly simplifies the online sign-up and trading process for resellers. Now thousands of data storage, consumer electronics and enterprise storage solutions are available to browse and purchase online from a user-friendly website.”
New resellers can buy products instantly from the online store at cmsdistribution.com/store and make 3D secure payments with a credit or debit card immediately after signing up. Placing subsequent orders will then only take seconds thanks to the integrated SagePay checkout and there are no surcharges on credit card payments. Resellers wishing to open a credit account can apply for one online and once approved can also track their orders and download invoices from one convenient dashboard. Customers in Ireland can also use cmsdistribution.com and view pricing in Euros.
Customers can request login details by contacting their CMS Distribution account manager directly or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
