Winston-Salem, N.C. - Nationwide Marketing Group (NMG) is working with web developers Site on Time and CMIC Data to provide its independent dealer members with more tools to build a competitive online presence.
According to CMIC Data president Bill Ward, "Site On Time's website platform coupled with CMIC's extensive product database will offer dealers a quality, effective and affordable website while offering their customers the optimal online shopping experience."
Ward noted that CMIC's database system currently drives many of NMG's programs. The database keeps track of dealers' brands, product catalogs and promotions so that each website will have a personalized front end that takes full advantage of the member's local presence and brings it online.
"This addition to our existing web services fills an important niche of step-up websites that can capitalize on the growing number of consumers who research products online before they make a purchase," said NMG member services operations director Frank Sandtner. "These fully featured sites lead online product searches directly to the store where sales teams can then provide additional information on pricing, package quotes, and full service store advantages that make and complete the sale."
According to Site on Time, NMG dealers can choose from four complete website packages that are priced to include website hosting, product catalog, optional shopping carts, payment options, and continuous support. Add-ons include an outlet store, service inquires and even gift registries.
"Any of our packages will allow the dealer to create a unique presence on the internet," said Site on Time principal Jennifer Danko. "We have been working side by side with Bill and CMIC Data for years. This new partnership with NMG will only serve to enhance the web services they already offer to their members."
Site on Time and CMIC Data will both be exhibiting at next week's
, NMG's biannual buying show and conference, which will be held Feb. 20-23 at the Venetian and Palazzo hotels in Las Vegas. The buying and marketing organization for independent appliance, electronics and furniture dealers is projecting record attendance for the event.
