A few years ago, there was a tradition where the salespersons would go door-to-door to advertise their brand to the customers. They would be carrying a bundle of paper brochures and catalogs to display the products. They may travel to different locations throughout the year to find the right customers who could buy the product. This practice is diminishing since the invasion of technology.
Demerit of paper catalogs
Consider that a shoe company has recently released a new range of shoes. The manufacturer is trying to sell some specific types of shoes to the distributors by using paper catalogs. In this process, the company representatives would physically take the catalogs to the distributors at a meeting place. They need to include every small detail in the catalog because these shoes are not yet a huge demand in the market.
Due to some inconvenience in the catalog, size types of some shoes with limited edition are out of stock and they are still visible in the catalogs. Thanks to this small mistake, the reps would need to explain it to each and every single buyer. This situation may escalate into a chaos when other chain suppliers such as wholesalers and retailers face the same problem.
The only means to avoid this messy situation is to reprint the catalogs all over again. This could push the company to spend extra money on printing and distributions. It might also lose the position in the market due to the delay of product information.

Save your money with digital catalog
A digital catalog can reduce the product cost on the unplanned reprinting of catalogs. With Catalog Bar, you can save your time, energy, and money for updating the catalogs. This catalog software allows you to update the designs in its computer management system (CMS) portal without redesigning the catalogs for adding new information in a new season. Once you are ready with your updated catalog, you can start sharing it with B2B partners.
Digital catalog provides you a simple customer portal
Catalog Bar has an exclusive stock keeping unit (SKU) facility that allows you to track a specific product for inventory purpose. An SKU helps you to identify any ready-to-buy item which is available in the catalog. For example, you are selling ribbons on your e-commerce catalog app. You can use an SKU number R-2-34 for a particular type of ribbon. This SKU tells the character of that ribbon – style R, size 2 metre, 34 orange colour.
With Catalog Bar, you can permit or block your customers from viewing the SKU details. This system helps in easy trading between B2B buyers and sellers. A sales order can be made flexible and customisable with this facility.
