Attribute Data Management

When selling millions of products it is essential that customers are able to quickly find the products that exactly match their requirements. Sometimes there are only minor technical specification differences between products and a normal product search may not be that helpful. With comprehensive product attributes and a fully featured faceted search the customer can quickly filter down to the relevant items and then compare features to make the final selection.

Configurable Items

It is a common belief that certain orders can only be handled offline because they require configuration or customisation. Netalogue has comprehensive functionality which allows you to sell even the most complex items online by attaching questions and choices to the product which the customer answers online. This removes the need for call back requests and sign off approval which ultimately delays the completion of the order and prevents the customer from ordering online.

Payment of Invoices

Your smaller customers may wish to place a new order with you but their account has reached its credit limit and your finance team have finished for the day. This is a common scenario and can typically require a phone call the next day to obtain copy invoices and make a remittance in order to be able to place a new order. The Netalogue B2B platform allows your customers to instantly view and pay invoices online by credit card which reduces their account balance allowing them to place new orders without the involvement of your finance or sales team.

Kits

Where products should be purchased in conjunction with others to complete a shop fit out or a new office starter, this functionality allows you to group items for a set price with the appropriate quantities prefixed for speed of ordering. This is particularly helpful where the compatibility of products is not obvious and customers rely on speaking to account managers. The kits do not even have to exist in your ERP solution, the kit or BOM can be extrapolated back out to individual line items so there is no added complexity in terms of integration.

Staff Allocation Control

Sometimes your B2B customer will buy products that are allocated to staff, e.g. uniforms or personal protection equipment and they want to ensure these are tightly controlled and correctly used. Whether or not the staff who require the item are the ones placing the order or the ordering is being performed on their behalf by a manager the items are logged against the relevant employee.

Reporting allows your customer to instantly see how many items have been consumed by each member of their staff.

Single Sign On

Oauth2 is a single sign on technology used by leading technology companies (e.g. Microsoft, Google, Facebook) and this is built into the Netalogue solution. As an approved standard it will either already be supported by your other business solutions or can be easily added. By also implementing Oauth2 into your public facing websites where prospects may initially register and raise an enquiry you can ensure a customer’s data is centrally maintained in one place avoiding unecessary replication or having multiple different logins for the same customer.

If you have other systems/sites for managing specific aspects of your customer relationships, e.g. a finance portal, marketing material, training guides, etc. which all have different logins and urls these can be combined into a single customer portal whereby the customer has a single login to access the Netalogue solution as well as the third party solutions. This provides a simple and unified way of bringing all your customer touch points together via a single username and password.
