Gaining Control with Technology: Ordering and Distribution through Single Sign-On with Business PayPal
As manufacturing companies grow, they often choose to store and distribute their own promotional materials—only to regret it later. One such ﬁrm, a global HVAC manufacturer with more than 500 brands, did just that. It was ﬁlling ongoing requests from more than 2000 distributors, and soon found it was spending too much time taking orders and shipping printed materials—time it could invest instead in growing its own business.
When the company’s directors looked for a ﬁrm to take over the process, they turned to ColorArt to automate the process. Orders are processed on time, inventory monitored automatically, and packages shipped promptly. Utilizing Kadena’s K-Center eCommerce portal, distributors are now enabled to enter orders right from their computer or mobile devices. Plus, ColorArt added a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution, so the company can offer secure access to the system via approved user credentials, and a Business PayPal solution, allowing distributors to pay for their materials without having to access their own PayPal accounts.
The company directors now leave the distribution of promotional materials to ColorArt, and use their time to focus on their operations. The company has relieved itself of a time-consuming, laborious process—while gaining more control over its operations.
