Without the materials you need, where, and when you need them, your project grinds to a halt. This is the primary job of any distributor and a basic expectation. The real difference in distribution boils down to their knowledge, inventory, and services. In this post, we’re focusing on knowledge.
Do you need to give your account manager or sales representative a part number each time you order or ask about a product set? When you’re preparing a bill of materials, there are many parts to consider. A knowledgeable distributor knows the solutions, the manufacturers, and can help you select options that work best for your job and budget. They can even catch missing components and identify errors that could waste time on the job site.
How well does your distributor know your business and the customers you serve? Your distributor should be able to help ensure your bill of materials is appropriate for the environments you support as well as make recommendations that are standards-compliant.
When your distributor demonstrates expertise, they gain your trust. When you trust your distributor’s recommendation, you’re open to trying products that can save you time or perform just as well at a lower cost. With access to a variety of suppliers, and experience with the quality, differences, and similarities between the solutions, they can give you sound guidance.
