ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWEB) February 13, 2018
PowerChord, a leading SaaS company that transforms how brands drive local sales, announces their global expansion into Australia with the STIHL Group - a longtime client and German manufacturer of chainsaws and other handheld power equipment including trimmers and blowers.
PowerChord recently launched STIHL Australia’s first local dealer websites - creating a fully branded, digital presence for select pilot dealers across the country. With more than 400 additional local websites scheduled to roll out in 2018, PowerChord’s hyper-local digital solutions for brands with dealer networks will enable STIHL Australia to connect customers directly to the STIHL products they’re searching for online.
Also known as Digital Storefronts, these local websites are designed to increase local brand awareness and make it easy for shoppers to find a nearby location to purchase. Combined with PowerChord’s hyper-local digital marketing strategies, the brand’s launch in Australia is expected to amplify their online engagement, drive more in-store visits and grow sales specifically through their local dealer channels.
“Since the launch of the pilot program in December of 2017, excitement has been building within our Dealer Network. The opportunity to further build our STIHL dealers’ businesses and take advantage of the online space is an obvious step forward for our retailers,” said Nicolette Cottrill, STIHL Australia’s CRM & Direct Marketing Specialist. “Providing a 24/7 accessible store for our customers is imperative to the continued growth of STIHL Australia.”
“We’re extremely pleased to extend our partnership with STIHL into dealer locations across Australia,” said Lanny Tucker, PowerChord CEO. “We are firmly committed to delivering best in class digital solutions that give clients like STIHL a scalable platform to protect their brand, strengthen dealer relationships and grow global to local revenue.”
In addition to working with clients, such as Kohler & ODES, PowerChord currently provides services to STIHL dealers across 28 countries, 18 languages, and 11 currencies.
