Winston-Salem, N.C. — The Nationwide Marketing Group has partnered with EcoRebates to provide its dealers with a tablet-based rebate and promotion search tool.
The comprehensive tool allows sales associates to identify for customers all savings offers, by both product and location, to help boost purchase decisions. Searches include state, local and utility-sponsored rebates for energy efficient appliances as well as vendor promotions, exclusive Nationwide deals and valuable “stacked” savings opportunities, the buying group said.
Optimized for use on a tablet, the tool automatically presents all available offers by ZIP code, allowing sales associates to view, sort and filter results by product type, brand or even model number, as well as verify rebate amounts, dates and important offer details, and download required claim forms.
The tool can also be configured specifically for each dealer.
“Our member dealers know that shoppers seek savings opportunities, so giving sales associates immediate access to rebates definitely drives purchase decisions,” said Frank Sandtner, Nationwide’s member services senior VP.
Added EcoRebates CEO Brett Battles, “We are pleased to be working with Nationwide Marketing Group and share their excitement for providing dealers with a rebate and offer tool proven to boost sales. When a sales associate can instantly show a customer specific products eligible for multiple offers — such as a utility rebate for $75, a vendor offer for $200 and even an additional Nationwide incentive — that is a powerful offer-driven commerce opportunity.”
The company said its Cloud-hosted, enterprise-class technology platform drives up to 15 percent incremental sales conversion and can save consumers millions in rebates and other promotional offers.
Nationwide is a $15 billion buying, marketing and services group with over 3,700 independent appliance, CE and home-furnishings dealers operating out of more than 10,000 storefronts in the U.S. and Canada.
