The Spectrum Business Solution

Success breeds success and the multifaceted business offering from Spectrum looks like being the industry’s biggest success yet. We’ve researched, developed, honed and perfected all the elements you need to deliver the “ultimate” promotional merchandise distribution business.

We’ve started with the basics by simply collecting only the very best products from around the world and presenting them in a stunningly beautiful catalogue unlike any other in the industry. We’ve then transferred these products plus another 50,000 others onto a search portal which includes every type of promotional product you can imagine.

Finally we’ve taken all this collateral and translated these attributes onto multiple on line platforms and vehicles enabling you to grow, develop and succeed.

All these options come as part of our Spectrum Business Solution. This also includes the full range of online tools which all fit seamlessly together to help you reach your ultimate goal: to drive sales and win business. You can get access to the Customer Focus Product Sourcing Portal, encourage online sales through an e-commerce website and manage your entire business from the initial quoting process right through to invoicing AND in addition to this you’ll receive a virtual catalogue that matches all the Spectrum products, plus access to quarterly e-flyers designed to engage your customers...

...now that’s a successful start to any business.

The Best Products

Products

The SEARCH portal holds over 50,000 promotional products from 325 Trade Suppliers and includes every promotional product you can imagine, and this year there is a real focus on some new and innovative ranges in addition to the popular well-known products, offering you and your customers the ultimate choice.

By simply typing in the products you are looking for you can find detailed product, print and pricing information quickly and easily. You will see who the supplier is, the product image and description and all the critical pricing information to enable you to offer your customer a quote in minutes.

To summarise - you’ll have access to 1000’s of new and existing products from all of the Top Suppliers in the industry, it really is that simple.

The Best Website

The Best Website

With each of the packages you will receive your own website that you can brand with your own logo and customise as you want to. You can choose to have the site as an ‘enquiry’ or an ‘ecommerce’ site, it’s up to you. You will also have full control of the content of the site too so you can show as many or as few products as you want!

Here are some of the options:

  • Choose to just have the spectrum catalogue products
  • Choose to include the full data feed which will allow you to showcase over 50,000 products from search
  • Add your own products from any other source
  • The ability to remove products as and when you need to, choose to remove by supplier, category or at product level

All pre-loaded products will be priced, so when the suppliers enter the product data initially they will provide a recommended sell price for each product which is the price that is featured on the SEARCH portal/website and included in the catalogue itself.

Other than the catalogue where the price is fixed for the whole year you will have the flexibility to change any of the pricing on the web, again give you full control of what you want to sell the products for, here are some of the options below:

  • Show no pricing at all – turn the pricing off
  • Create a blanket change to increase or decrease by % on all products on the site
  • Amend the pricing to the price you want at product level

NOTE: please do bear in mind that the catalogue prices will remain all year round so if you do decide to change the spectrum product prices on your site then these will no longer mirror the prices in the catalogue.
