AN ONLINE builders’ merchant has added new tools to its site which it believes will help save builders and contractors time.
The new business tools add the ability to build tailored customer quotes online and add multiple site and customer addresses, as well as allowing additional buyers from their team to be added.
It also offers trade businesses the ability to have clear and transparent monitoring of quarterly and annual spend on materials to ensure cost recovery.
As with traditional builders’ merchants, CMO Stores.com also has a team of sales advisers and an online chat facility enabling customers to order in multiple ways to ensure that ordering is as convenient as possible.
Quote and Cost Management
“CMOTrade.co.uk is more than simply an online shop, it has become a vital business management tool for our customers, said Rob Martin, trade manager for CMOStores.com.
“As well as saving time and money by removing the need to go back and forth to collect materials, customers told us they also wanted the platform to offer specific features to help them to run their businesses more effectively.
“With our deep understanding of the construction trade, we were able to work with our web developers to incorporate a number of time-saving features which would help builders in their day to day business. It’s all part of our mission to be a positive disruptor within the building industry.”
CMOStores’ online trade portal now enables builders to create a quote on the website, add their own margin and forward it direct to the customer for approval.
With all quotes and invoices available in a single place online, there is less chance of losing track of costs on a project.
Andy Dunkley, CEO of CMOStores.com, added: “We’ve been listening and thinking about what other functions of business our services touch, and we’re adding these management tools to take a load off the customer’s mind, and help them speed up the admin and management of individual projects, so helping their overall business to run more smoothly and efficiently.”
