Today with great excitement I’d like to announce the launch of a software application I’ve been working on for a long time.
Supplier Partner is a browser based tool you use to manage your product catalog that replaces spreadsheets and makes your information instantly accessible to your resellers.
- It replaces your spreadsheet (or whatever you use) on which you store your product & inventory information with a browser based database that you can access from anywhere.
- It allows you to import and export your product information in whatever format you’d like and save those templates for constant use.
- It can automatically email and FTP up to date product information on a schedule.
- It allows them to create their own account with access to whatever fields you choose to expose to them to have read only access in real time.
- They can create export templates on their own that match their needs, and save them for quick updates just like you.
- They can set up their own email and FTP automated exports just like you.
- If you prefer them to only view items in a browser and not export them you can turn those features off on a user by user basis.

Most of you that read and subscribe to this blog are in E-commerce like myself, so you aren’t necessarily the target market. What you are however, is the beneficiary of this software when your supplier uses it. Imagine being able to automate and customize the format, date, time, and method of transmission of your supplier’s product and inventory information. In the companies I’ve worked for we’ve invested tons of time just making sense of all the data that is sent to us in hundreds of different formats, Supplier Partner allows you to set it and forget it, thereby reducing work and ensuring your information is up to date. If you’re anything like me this product would be a dream come true compared to what we normally deal with.
Right now I’m offering a free month trial. If you’re a subscriber to this blog and shoot me an email, I’ll send you a coupon for an extra month free. If you’re in e-retail you know how big of a hassle product data management is, do yourself and me a favor and share SupplierPartner.com with your suppliers!
