Want to Sell More Without Stocking More?  Do What Amazon.com Does
Chances are that every one of your customers has purchased something from Amazon.com ("Amazon").  If you are a manufacturer or a wholesaler-distributor of industrial products, this is a problem.  But not because Amazon might be a direct competitor.  Rather, it is a problem because Amazon has seduced your customers into expecting everything to be available from stock for immediate shipment.  How can you meet this expectation of next-day product availability on a wide variety of products, without investing in more inventory?

Featured Feature:  BROADCAST REQUEST

is an email communication tool that allows you to send an inquiry to every member of a selected inventory-sharing community.  This feature is used when a needed item is not found in a SEARCH at WarehouseTWO.  Many WarehouseTWO members do not upload inventory data to their accounts. But these members own inventory.  It is simply not visible at WarehouseTWO.  BROADCAST REQUEST helps you access this "hidden" inventory via an email request.

Upcoming Training
