7 things you didn’t know about Office Power dealer partners
Have you ever wondered how our dealer partners successfully manage to work with any supplier they want? How they structure their deliveries to meet their specific business model? Or even what they really have to say about their partnership with us? To help you find out the answers to these questions and more, we’ve put together a list of 7 things you probably didn’t know about Office Power dealer partners:
1 THEY WORK WITH ANY SUPPLIERS THEY WANT
Our dealer partners have complete flexibility in terms of which suppliers they want to work with. Some suppliers are fully integrated into the platform, which gives dealers access to the group cost price file and suppliers direct admission to the platform, making the ordering process seamless. Any other suppliers that a dealer wants to work with can be easily added too, in line with their individual customer requirements.
2 They have the ability to turn fixed costs into variables if they want
It’s up to the dealer to decide which fixed costs – if any – they want to turn into variable. They choose what’s right for their business based on their situation, and we support them with insights for their business development and improved performance. It’s never a one-size-fits-all solution and our dealer partners always find the best way to manage their overheads and operational headaches if they need to.
3 They choose whichever delivery type they want
Our dealer partners decide on the delivery type that best suits their customer’s needs, and have the flexibility to change to serve their customers in the way they want to. During the Covid crisis, dealers were able to quickly switch to well-managed drop-ship in response to the new and unprecedented climate. All dealer customers benefit from contact-free and home delivery too.
4 They have a rock-solid support network
All our dealer partners are strong and independent businesses, but together they form a robust network of smart, like-minded dealers. They have access to our online community platform, which provides training, access information and form connections. But our community is much more than just an online platform. Our dealer partners form relationships, and they know each other and our team on a personal level. No matter where they decide to take their businesses, they’re never going it alone, and they know they can get support when they need it.
5 Their businesses are independent and they are in full control
Office Power dealer partners have full control and visibility of their businesses. Each dealer business is different, and their growth plans vary greatly. It’s up to them where they want to take their business, and we’re there to support them on that journey. They are in control of their identity, building their brand equity, strengthening relationships with their customers and moving their business in the direction they want.
6 They enjoy insights from the entire EO Group to support their growth
Our experience and technology enable us to help dealers anonymously benchmark their performance and access specialist resources to help them grow their business. Being part of EO Group means that they enjoy insights from a partner with over 20 years’ experience in running an office supplies business, as well as working with independent dealers as partners.
7 They say that they are better off in partnership with Office Power than not
“We can only imagine what life would have been like had we not moved to Office Power.” – Nick Bugden, Stylus Stationers
Our motto is to join forces only with the dealers whose partnership proves financially viable for both sides. Our dealer partners are very loyal to us, and we are loyal to them. We play to each other’s strengths and facilitate each other’s success, making it a true partnership.
