Ordering with digital workbooks in the quintet24 portal works like a showroom or a trade show, only online.
The function of sample goods and sales staff explanations are taken from the workbook. In the trend overview, the buyer sees all his suppliers’ possible purchase lines. He has no access to outside suppliers. He chooses a pre-order or post-order line and leafs through a digital catalogue, from which he can drag products into his order bar and enter quantities.
For the post-order, he can also make selections for the desired goods according to product groups and price ranges. Again, he only sees results from his suppliers and cannot compare products. Just like at a fair: he only sees the offer at the exhibition stand. However, post-order goods are always linked with immediately available ranges.
The main focus is on high-selling assortments for immediate orders.
Once a year, the manufacturer and the customer meet to look at new products, set dates and negotiate conditions. Range ordering takes place online, continuously throughout the year. In this way we shorten the time between design and sales, respond more quickly to consumer wishes, always have up-to-date goods in the shop, reduced paperwork, less travel expenses, showrooms or sample goods.
