Providing great quality products is at the forefront of IPD’s commitment to our customers. However, we understand that in today’s market it takes much more than that to compete with an increasingly aggressive Original Equipment Manufacturer’s network. We feel strongly that for IPD to continue to be successful, our Distributors world-wide must also continue to increase their capabilities in providing not only quality services, but their ability to communicate what they offer to the market.

A few points that seem in common with our most successful Distributors, regardless of their location are:

  • A strong outside sales effort. Making consistent sales calls on current and prospective customers is critical. There are too many people out there fighting to take your business from you not to have a substantial on-going sales effort in place to keep your business strong, and utilize the market intelligence you gather.
  • Offering services that differentiate your business. Engine Testing, Component Exchange Programs or Parts Delivery Services are items that will not only differentiate you from those that don’t, but will keep you closer to competing with the OEM!
  • A strong relationship for service and support from your vendors.
    • Does your heavy-duty supplier offer sales and marketing help?
    • Are they effective in helping you develop your company’s differentiations?
    • Are they experienced enough to help you convince end-users to consider you?
    • Are they moving forward with new products?
    • Do they offer a product that compliments your company’s reputation?

This brings us to this month’s “IPD Differentiation” feature, our new IPDNet™ online ordering system and catalog. For those of you that have used our IPD Parts Database™ for the past 6 years, we are certain you will enjoy the new system that offers many important features as described below. At this time, IPDNet™ is only available to Authorized IPD Distributors but the service that our Distributor can now offer to the end-user is greatly enhanced.
