Web marketplace for Seagate partners
Drive manufacturer puts sourcing and ordering facility online to boost channel service and make it easier for the channel to work together.
Creating space online so your channel can gather to comparison shop and select an appropriate distributor is increasingly being seen as essential for a successful channel.
Seagate Technologies went live on its example in this space last month, calling its Reseller Marketplace, the storage industry’s first, collaborative, e-commerce marketplace—for US-based channel partners in its initial stages.
The Reseller Marketplace at http://marketplace.seagate.com is an exclusive service for resellers participating in the Seagate Partner Program (SPP).
The company says it is designed to streamline the purchasing process of Seagate solutions and provide value to Seagate’s resellers through real-time pricing and availability, fast and easy comparison shopping, and seamless integration with key distributors for a one-stop shopping experience.
