Introducing the new DistributorCentral public website

To complement the recent launch of our new, responsive website platform, we wanted to redesign our public website leveraging the powerful tools available in DistributorCentral’s new responsive web builder. As part of designing a new website our team felt it important to showcase our “story” so visitors could learn more about what we mean when we say that DistributorCentral is, from product research to delivery, “the complete solution for distributors and suppliers.”

The mission behind the creation of DistributorCentral’s technology has always been to create Accurate Orders; for an end user to order products from a distributor website and have those orders flow seamlessly to the supplier with all the pertinent information required for the supplier to accurately produce and ship the order to the customer. The foundation of DC is that accurate orders start with accurate and complete product information from the supplier, which is why it’s important to understand that suppliers have direct access to update their data and why they commit to honoring the pricing they have listed on DistributorCentral.

The desire to better explain how our services support our mission led us to create a very different type of home page. Users can scroll down and see how DC takes you seamlessly through the order process and gives you the website, product research and customer management tools you need to run your business more effectively. Additional changes were made to enhance the feature and pricing information in order to provide distributors and suppliers are better picture of our service offerings.

“We are especially proud that this redesign was built entirely within the new, responsive DC Web Editor”, says Rachel Dykes, DistributorCentral’s User Experience Developer. “In addition to the basic tools offered in our web builder we did employ some custom Javascript to achieve the cool scrolling effect on the front page, but any DC user familiar with advanced web design can replicate the effect within our editor by using similar Javascript techniques. We hope our new site showcases the power and flexibility of our new web editor.”

Even if you are already a DC distributor or supplier user, we encourage you to take a few minutes to learn more about how our technology works seamlessly from product research to delivery to save you time placing and receiving accurate orders.

Different Activities, Different Results

I’ve had the pleasure to be part of the promotional products industry for well over fifteen years. In that time, I have seen many displays of boldness as people started businesses, took risks, and tried to stay one step ahead of the competition by doing things differently. Unfortunately, this is the exception and not the rule. In many ways, branded merchandise professionals have cornered the market on the phrase, “that’s the way we’ve always done it.”

It’s been said countless times – if you do things the way they’ve always been done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. Whether you’re a distributor, supplier, or a service provider in this industry, it’s time to dip a toe in the water and do things that might make you a little uncomfortable:
