New Supplier? Before you Place Your First Stock Order, Do This
Are you a stocking wholesaler-distributor (“distributor”) who sells branded products from selected manufacturer partners (“suppliers”)? And have you recently taken on a new supplier? Before you place your first stock order with this supplier, do this first.

Member Feedback
WarehouseTWO helps us turn another 1-to-2 inquiries into sales orders every day. These are orders we would have lost otherwise. Also, we get 3-to-4 sales orders per week from other WarehouseTWO members needing an item in our stock.”

Distribution Quip of the Month
"Never express anger at a subordinate over his/her error or misdeed. Instead, express how disappointed you are. In addition to the latter being more diplomatic, it is has a much greater impact."

Got a favorite work-related quip? Or a snippet of wisdom applicable to the world of wholesale-distribution? Share it with us.
WarehouseTWO Tip of the Month
For security, delete user accounts from your company’s WarehouseTWO member account corresponding to ex-employees. Chances are that your ex-employee now works for a competitor. Or that he/she got separated from your company under less than friendly terms. Do you really want him/her to see your inventory data, and that of peer distributors? Do you want him/her to have access to your account so that he/she can disrupt it? We hope not.
Referral Rewards Program
The easiest way to get more value from your WarehouseTWO account is to increase participation by other distributors and manufacturers. Over the years, many of you have been loyal "evangelists", recommending WarehouseTWO to peer distributors, to manufacturers and to associations and marketing groups.

We want to encourage and compensate you for the results of your efforts. To learn more about our "WarehouseTWO Referral Rewards" program, and how you and your company can benefit, click here.
