B2B Ecommerce Solutions for Suppliers of Pipes, Valves & Fittings (PVF)

Integrate with your ERP system and give your customers the ability to easily check your inventory and purchase your goods online 24/7

3 valves with pressure gauges

In the pipes, valves, and fittings (PVF) industry, your customers are often both price and inventory sensitive, and so you need a B2B ecommerce platform that can keep up with the frenetic pace of changes to both these aspects across your entire product catalog.

We know you handle complex pricing issues (stemming from price fluctuations in raw materials) and work with hundreds of manufacturers from which you purchase parts on a regular basis. And as a PVF supplier, your customers can be extremely stock sensitive – they need to know the moment their badly-needed parts become available. If a part breaks on the job site and there are no replacements, they may have shut down that piece of machinery until they can get that replacement.

Cloudfy’s out-of-the-box B2B features can help both you as the distributor and your customers with a variety of features to streamline the ordering process, access up-to-date stock information, improve customer satisfaction, and save time and money.

KEY FEATURES FOR P.F.V. SALES

Product Detail Downloads

You can add a documents tab to your customer’s product portal so they can view and download product details from anywhere at any time. This is important because your customers are often engineers who work in the field, and need fast access to details about the specific parts they’re using – things like specs, materials makeups, max pressures, assembly instructions, etc.

Multi Warehousing

The multi-warehousing feature in Cloudfy allows you to allocate different products to different warehouses. Sometimes, the warehouse is not a building at all but a truck that goes from job site to job site with the appropriate parts. Regardless, when your customers place their orders, your product must be pulled from the correct location, and Cloudfy makes this easy for you to do.

Custom Pricing Rules

In the PVF industry, you work with an intricate pricing structure to supply different products to different customers at different price points. Your Cloudfy's webstore comes pre-built with the most comprehensive set of custom wholesale pricing features on the market. You'll be able to give each of your customers their own unique login to access their own pricing and no one else’s.

Configure Price Quote

Cloudfy's CPQ product builder makes it easy for your customers to purchase your customizable products. CPQ can create efficiencies in your quoting sales processes too by eliminating errors and confusion that come from hand-scribbled notes or manually (mis)typed emails.

Salesperson App

In the PVF industry, your salespeople often work out in the field. Cloudfy’s sales rep ordering app gives your salespeople the ability to check inventory and place the order in the field or the office—wherever they happen to be.

Inventory Feeds

With the help of Cloudfy's inventory feeds feature, you can give your customers the ability to sign up to receive daily, weekly, or monthly email exports of your stock counts so they can view, download or import into their own business systems.

Quote Process

Cloudfy’s quote workflow features ensure you get the most up-to-date pricing from your manufacturers before passing the information along to your customer so there’s no surprises.

Back in Stock Alerts

Back in stock alerts allow your customers to check a box to be notified by push notification or email whenever a particular out-of-stock product arrives back in stock.

ERP Integration

Your Cloudfy ecommerce site integrates with your ERP so that your customers, salespeople, and all your company departments are working with the same, up-to-date information.
