We transform the customer onboarding process for wholesale and distribution businesses, delivering greater productivity and efficiency, resulting in increased sales and profitability. Wholesalers using our technology platform dramatically streamline their prospecting and new account approval process while improving the customer experience. It is designed to serve as an intelligent CRM system for any business in the food and drink space. Prolonged credit decisioning processes will inevitably result in sales being lost to competitors. Companies that do not embrace the new opportunities afforded by technology will be surpassed by those that do. The contemporary customer expects and demands rapid service and responses.
