bolts and piping

These are challenging times for manufacturers and distributors of industrial parts and components. Supply chains are stretched thinner than ever. Commodity costs for raw materials are sky high. And an ever-increasing amount of international competitors are seeking to capture more and more of your market share.

Quite often, purveyors of capital goods and MRO products are well established businesses that have used the same (manual) business admin processes for years. To thrive in this modern, ultra-competitive environment, it’s more important than ever that you look internally to determine if there are areas of your business where you can introduce automation and convert from expenses to profit centers. Order processing and customer service are two responsibilities that are typically ripe with savings potential.

But if you’re searching for a tool that can best help you streamline these two departments, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one. Most trade-only ecommerce solutions are little more than a B2C-oriented software with a few surface-level wholesale features.

And then there’s Cloudfy – the best-in-class B2B ecommerce software for industrial parts manufacturers and distributors, with the most comprehensive set of trade-only features on the market. Cloudfy is a SaaS product that includes an ordering portal, mobile apps, client connectors and more – all designed to help simplify, save and scale your operation by automating your order processing and shifting client admin tasks to an online, self-service approach.
