1 February 2007 — St Louis (MO): A new affiliate programme has been launched by Indoff to support the US independent dealer community.
The Next Day scheme allows dealers to have access to working capital, state of the art information technology for back-room processing and customer order entry as well as access to comprehensive, dealer-specific marketing programmes.
Jim Malkus, President and CEO of Indoff, said Next Day is designed to assist independent office products dealers to profitably grow their business and compete with the power channel.
He added: "Our objective is to create a national brand and provide independent dealers the ability to level the playing field. We see a tremendous opportunity in the office products channel to successfully compete and win market share.
"We know from our current model that when we handle the challenges of managing the non-sales related activities of a business, bright marketing and service-oriented individuals can capture significant market share. Next Day is designed to provide these services to the independent dealer."
