CASE STUDY: H & H Archery
H&H Archery (http://www.hharchery.com/) came to us with a business need, a very big business need. For years they had been servicing their archery dealers using manual systems. With over 1,000 dealers you can imagine how much overhead this can create from just a staffing perspective alone. Through a joint effort if implementing a new internal inventory management system and integrating that system with our iMerchCart, H&H Archery was able to offer their dealers a private and secure web tool to not only communicate with H&H Archery but also place orders thus reducing the amount of staff required to man the phones and fax machine.
But we didn't stop there, once the H&H Archery database was completed and being updated several times each day from the internal inventory system, we launched a whole new marketing solution for the dealers. Each dealer could subscribe to H&H Archery's Dealer Network Solution which also included a marketing and eCommerce website solution. What was totally unique about the dealer commerce sites is that they came preloaded with the entire 8,000 plus products in the H&H Archery inventory. Imaging being a dealer in a rural location and overnight becoming an online business with thousands of products that you would never be able to carry in your retail location, it was amazing.
The best part for the dealers is the product database is keep up to date by H&H Archery simply managing their inventory. The dealers also have the ability to add other items to their online store, set their own product pricing, create sales and promotions and much more. The dealer network solution also includes the AHODWeb PowerTools system so that the dealer can create and manage sustained marketing campaigns with all their online customers.
