Retailers and distributors should be able to check stock levels more easily thanks to a new Stock Availability Tool from appliance brand Sub-Zero & Wolf, which gives real-time updates on its portfolio of products.
The stock tracking tool is compatible with mobile, tablet, and desktop browsers. Retailers can access the tool via the brand’s existing dealer portal, where they can search for products by model number to receive instant updates on the products they want to know about.
Results are displayed using a traffic light system, which shows a simplified representation of the lead times available for each product. Users will also have access to appliance price lists, product brochures and brand materials.
Sub-Zero & Wolf has said it believes the new feature will “increase efficiency and cut decision-making times for end-user clients”.
Ricky Davies, managing director of Sub-Zero & Wolf UK and Europe, said: “We are delighted to roll out the Sub-Zero & Wolf stock availability tool to our distributor network. We hope this will be an invaluable asset to the designers, sales and logistics teams we work with.
“Previously, our suppliers would have to wait for updates from our sales representatives, whereas now, they can give their clients real-time updates on their desired products while they stand in the showroom.”
The appliance manufacturer has also recently reported that its lead times have returned to where they were prior to the disruption caused by the pandemic, and that the majority of its appliances are now held in stock.
