D-Tools Cloud has partnered with many suppliers to provide dealers the best experience for building quotes and winning proposals. The main benefits are supplier provided costs for your catalog products, and product data (pictures, descriptions, and more) will be updated by the supplier, saving you time and ensuring more accurate pricing for your projects.
Connecting to a Supplier
Connecting to a Supplier provides you with access to authorized dealer cost - authorization is handled by the Supplier. There are multiple places to connect to your Supplier account
- Settings - configure Suppliers in your settings, in the Supplier section
- Catalog - you will see a banner for each supplier
To connect, enter in your Account Number as well as your Billing Zip code associated with that supplier. D-Tools will do a lookup on the entered codes and will see if the supplier has authorized you as a dealer.
If the Account Number and Zip code match up, you will be connected to the supplier and receive the dealer costs for your approved pricing tier. This should happen instantaneously.
If we don't find a match, we reach out to the Supplier to ask them if you should be approved. They may choose to approve or decline you as a dealer.
If approved, you will receive an email and in-app notification alerting you. This may take a few days to a couple weeks, so please be patient.
If you are declined, you will receive a comment from the supplier why you did not get approved. Any further communication should be done directly with the supplier.
Become New Dealer
If you are not an existing dealer for the desired supplier, just click the link to become one. You will be redirected to supplier's signup page. Once approved, you will get an Account Number from the supplier. Take that with your Billing Zip Code and come back to this step to enter it. You will then get approved and have supplier sync'ed costs added.
