CenterStone Technologies, Inc, a Denver-based developer of Web software and services for managing sales orders, announced that Redfeather Snowshoes has selected CenterStone to provide business-to-business sales order management software for its retail customers. Redfeather, a manufacturer of state-of-the-art snowshoes, joins a growing list of quality brands working with CenterStone to automate sales order management procedures for increased efficiency and ease-of-use.
“The retail landscape becomes increasingly competitive every season. Every retailer has limited floor space, and needs to select its vendors very carefully. At Redfeather Snowshoes, we are always looking for ways to differentiate our brand from our competitors. It's not just about the product any more. It's also about providing the highest level of service to our dealers. That's why we decided to adopt the CenterStone sales order management solution,” said Bonnie Glover, vice president of marketing for Redfeather Snowshoes.
Once the sales order management system is implemented, dealers will be able to view Redfeathers electronic catalogs with current product prices, check product availability, create worksheet order forms, and submit and track orders in real time. “With the implementation of our software system, Redfeather will become a vendor that retailers find easy to work with,” said Tom Detmer, president and chief executive officer of CenterStone.
“We want our dealers, as well as our prospective dealers, to know that of all the snowshoe brands on the market, Redfeather is the easiest and most responsive manufacturer with which to do business. With several clicks of the mouse, our sales reps, as well as our dealers, can easily place pre-season orders, check inventory availability and place reorders at any time. On top of offering a superior product that is made here in America, Redfeather Snowshoes will be able to offer – thanks to CenterStone Technologies – unparalleled service to our dealers,” said Glover.
