Groovystuff is proud to announce the launch of their website dealer portal. The new portal will give dealers instant access to extensive product details and pricing. Dealers will also receive exclusive discounting. The portal is also compliant with mobile web browsers for instant smart phone access.
Site developer, Jason Glisson said of the portal, “We've attempted to customize the experience for our dealers by making it easier for them to view our products in both a mobile format and desktop formats. Additionally, the new account feature will definitely be useful for quick pricing and ordering. All of these features will gradually improve over time with the feedback we receive from our customers.”
Through the portal, dealers will have access to more than 270 items, over 150 new items, and 119 proven repeat-performers that form the foundation of the Groovystuff line. The items are all organized in 24 easy-to-navigate categories for both indoor and garden applications. There are 120 items with dealer pricing of $99 or less, and 23 price reductions from the 2012 catalog, allowing retailers to purchase up to 20 percent of the Groovystuff line at less than 2008 pricing levels.
