New products, new services and new opportunities for Advantia members to grow
By embracing our diversification product strategy Advantia members are evolving from office products suppliers to suppliers of everything, able to sell anything, anytime embracing the ‘internet of things’ through our exclusive Merlin Marketplace e-commerce platform.
Using intelligence provided by our members and other sources Advantia’s purchasing team research different market sectors, finding new products and services and suppliers. They then create profitable partnerships with well-chosen suppliers enabling our members to diversify their portfolio and grow sales.
New suppliers and new products are added to our Merlin Marketplace e-commerce solution on an ongoing basis, and as soon as they are on Merlin members can start selling them. Members need to choose to sell the new products, they are not forced to sell anything until their sales teams are confident and able to sell them. And, if they decide they never want to add these products that’s fine, all our members are different!
