LEADING supplier of bearings and power transmission products, Bearings International (BI), has launched an e-commerce platform that now gives customers access to its products from anywhere in South Africa.
“We aim to create a 24-hour, seven-day a week, access experience for our existing customers, as well as to reach out to new customers, including those living in remote areas,” says BI MD Bart Schoevaerts.
“The platform allows for building quotes, adding out-of-stock items to a wish list, and placing orders. It links directly to our ERP system for accuracy and direct transactions,” says BI Business Systems Manager JJ Jansen van Vuuren.
The platform also allows access to pricing, product range, and stock availability, and existing customers can trade on agreed pricing.
The platform also offers technical information, product selector tools, installation guides, maintenance advice, and a wide-variety of applications to help you to make an informed product selection.
“Our e-commerce platform is a good way to not only have information about product and price on hand, but extras like installation, training, and maintenance tips and tricks,” says van Vuuren.
Customers using the platform will find ongoing promotions offering special discounts in June.
