DCX, or the Distributor Catalog Exchange, is another next-generation data solution from DDS, the leading product content provider serving electrical, plumbing, HVAC, automation, industrial supply, tool, and solar distributors.
DCX allows distributors to provide their customers with the same comprehensive, e-commerce-friendly product content as “the big guys,” but at an affordable cost—and without the transactional capabilities or requirements of an ERP-integrated solution.
Maybe you’re not quite ready for a full-fledged e-commerce site. Maybe you’re working on getting there. Or perhaps that just doesn’t fit your business model. Whatever the circumstances, finally there’s a solution that can help you provide a local, online source for product content that is critical to your customers—and your own sales force—as they research and source material.
The DCX catalog is branded to your company, and unique to your organization based upon the lines you represent.
And we update the content regularly for you, as part of your subscription, to ensure your customers receive accurate information from your suppliers.
