Written by Jaap Jan de Lange on . Posted in Exact Online

As a Wholesale Distributor, knowing your products, prices and availability is key to make a sale. Having a catalog at hand offering this information in real time is a necessity no sales rep can do without these days. But what happens when the assortment is large or items are very much alike? You do not want to struggle finding products or make mistakes as your prospected customer expects a direct answer.
