Q. I have a network of buyers I supply, how can the system help me manage my distribution channels?

A. The system is highly customisable and can be configured to show your specific network of buyers prices and offers according to their individual requirements or to groups of some of your buyers. You can manage these orders individually or collectively depending on the volume you want to sell to these customers.
