Just this morning I was in a friend’s store and I was chatting to him about ordering from suppliers.
His suppliers currently send him pricelists as pdfs. He needs to browse through the pdfs to find the items he wants to order from the supplier. Then he calls the supplier to place the order.
He is more than happy to phone-in the order. However scanning through pricelist pdfs on his phone to find things, while trying to serve customers is not ideal.
He gave an example where he had to get an order in to a supplier by a certain time yesterday. He would have liked to order much more from the supplier, but simply didn’t get time to search through the full pricelist pdf to find everything he needed. Instead he ordered what he could find in the pdf and from what he knew by heart.
I showed him our online ordering for wholesale app and he said
“This is exactly what I need”
Exact quote- thank you kind sir! Ever since, I’ve been like:
