We empower suppliers to access new markets and accelerate growth. There are no costs associated with conventional wholesalers for suppliers to trade, no range reviews nor relentless price re-negotiations.
Greater Market Reach
irexchange aims to make it easier for suppliers to reach large scale consumer markets. Suppliers of all sizes can grow at their own pace – from local, to state, to national suppliers, or to define their own service area.
We aim to release the true cost of product (including promotional discounts) to the independent retailer, increasing transparency and removing much of the complexity from pricing. Industry competitive terms of trade and promotional discounts are passed on to the independent retailer. Suppliers set the price to the IR. Pricing is flexible and irexchange can customise pricing at the group or store level.
Simple trading terms reduce the need for price re-negotiations on individual products which contributes to saving time and money. Simple processes minimise invoice chasing, paperwork and administration.
Efficient and Streamlined Ordering & Fulfilment
Ordering and fulfilment is made more efficient through our digital trading platform and next generation fulfilment methodologies. Suppliers can save transport costs by delivering to the nearest distribution centre. irexchange consolidates costly sub-scale direct delivery networks. The ‘last mile’ cost of deliveries is shared across a larger supplier base.
irexchange’s open and transparent platform provides free business intelligence from real-time data into customer product preferences. This can help suppliers with marketing and promotional strategy development.
Marketing & Promotional Support
irexchange can provide competitive and targeted marketing and promotional support - for individual suppliers and Independant Retailers - including catalogues and eDMs.
