With the SAGE Supplier Center, you can:
Add and update your products and contact information in real time
Update your company’s contact information to make sure SAGE has the correct information in their database. This way, each time a distributor searches for one of your products in any of the SAGE research tools, the information will all be correct.
Be sure to include the email addresses you want catalog requests, sample orders, quote requests and more to be sent to. This way, every email you receive from SAGE is sent to the correct person so the process is as efficient as possible.
Upload multiple product images
Help distributors sell more of your products! Upload multiple product images showing different colors and angles. Distributors will be able to create virtual samples using their clients’ brand colors, showing them exactly what their order will look like to close the sale.
Add product specials and resources
With the SAGE Supplier Center, adding product specials and resources, such as marketing flyers, documents, videos, and more, is easy. These resources give distributors more information on your products to set them apart from your competitors’ products and can serve as a resource for distributors when selling your products.
Distributors set alerts to be notified of product specials and also choose to search exclusively for product specials, so by adding specials, you increase the likelihood that distributors will see those products.
View your statistics
Do you ever wonder how many distributors are viewing your products? You can view your product statistics in the SAGE Supplier Center to measure how many people are viewing your supplier information and product information and how many orders you’re receiving directly from SAGE. This helps you measure your progress to see if you are improving.
Communicate with distributors using SAGE Chat
Providing good customer service is pivotal to retaining customers. By installing SAGE Chat through the SAGE Supplier Center, you give distributors live, instant access to someone at your company who can answer their questions. This is much more efficient than a phone call or email and gives distributors nearly instantaneous answers to their questions. Learn more about SAGE Chat here.
Control most of your advertising

Measuring your advertising success helps you see your return on investment and what types of ads have been more effective so that you can adjust your advertising plan and put more effort into the most successful areas.
The SAGE Supplier Center is also where you can set limits, completely control your advertising budget for pay-per-impression ads and update your artwork anytime!
How many calls does your customer support staff receive each day about order status? You can add order tracking information in the SAGE Supplier Center so distributors can simply check the status of their order in SAGE Online.
