GCommerce technology enables “Infinite Aisles” with near real-time connectivity and automated supply chain visibility. This means customers can search online, expecting to find all the available products from a brand – not only the products in stock from a distributor.
Distributors offer the advantages of regional proximity to their customers and a wide assortment of manufacturers’ brands. But, because they stock only the more popular and proven-selling SKU’s, they rely on their manufacturers to stock and ship new products and slow-moving, long-tail products upon demand. Distributors and Manufacturers working together can offer the market the complete depth of a Brand’s assortment – the inventory stocked at the distributors’ premises plus the virtual inventory available for drop shipment from the manufacturers.
GCommerce partners with the leading aftermarket data pools to ensure that marketplaces have access to complete product content directly from the most dependable sources.
The buying experience and satisfaction of an online customer depends on the accuracy of the product content on the screen. Marketplaces prefer to have a direct relationship with the Brand Owners for application fitment information, product attributes and descriptions, images and other digital assets. No one has a greater investment in their brand reputation and equity than the brand owners. Frequent and direct updates of product content deliver a better online experience than pages that rely on screen scraping and manipulated product content that may be out of date or incomplete.
