We're excited to announce a new strategic partnership between TOOLBX and Specialty Building Products (SBP), a leading distributor of specialty building products in North America. Together, we're empowering SBP member dealers to seamlessly navigate the digital landscape and capture the immense opportunities in LBM e-commerce.
The partnership will provide SBP's extensive network of dealers with access to TOOLBX's comprehensive digital LBM platform, empowering them to enhance their online presence, streamline operations, and better service their customers. Through this collaboration, SBP dealers will gain:
- Seamless product data: Synchronized product information ensures accurate and up-to-date online product listings, leading to improved customer experience and sales efficiency.
- Enhanced customer engagement: TOOLBX equips dealers with online ordering, customer messaging, quote tools, and a customer portal for account management and payments, building trust and convenience for contractors and homeowners alike.
- Streamlined business operations: TOOLBX's platform integrates with existing ERP systems, automating complex pricing rules like individual Pro discounts, while simplifying inventory management and order processing.
"We care about our dealer customers' success. And with e-commerce penetration at less than 1% amongst the average LBM dealer, we took it upon ourselves to bring a best-in-class solution to our customers," said Jeff McLendon, President and CEO of Specialty Building Products. "A number of our customers are already using TOOLBX and we want to make our product data available to them through TOOLBX."
"TOOLBX goes beyond the e-commerce checkbox. Dealers need a comprehensive digital solution that truly transforms their business. We provide that with a suite of customer-facing tools that enable them to streamline operations, enhance customer service, and boost loyalty among their Pro or retail segment," said Erik Bornstein, CEO and cofounder of TOOLBX. "We're thrilled to partner with a leader like SBP and empower their customers with the resources they need to thrive online".
