Brandwise has announced that Arteriors will debut its new VMi iPad sales app at the High Point Market. VMi, or “Visual Merchandiser for iPad,” is the latest platform extension of the Visual Merchandiser tool, making it the only hardware-independent order capture tool on the market – meaning it can be used on any laptop, tablet, PC or iPad.
With VMi reps can quickly and easily create high-impact, striking visual sales orders on the iPad. It seamlessly integrates with any existing backend software so sales orders are automatically entered - eliminating the time delay, cost and error associated with manual order entry. VMi also allows reps offline access to all their digital catalogs and can easily accommodate both multi-line agencies and suppliers.
“Arteriors has an uncompromising reputation for leading innovation in both product design and quality. We bring that same spirit to our sales and service processes, said Arteriors CEO and founder Mark Moussa. “The old way of doing business is quickly becoming outdated. We are always looking for opportunities to push the envelope and are excited to implement VMi to both enhance our customer buying experience and equip our sales force with the most effective sales tools available.”
“We’re proud to be working with industry leader Arteriors on the roll-out of VMi,” said Brandwise President Todd Litzman. “Our team has worked with numerous suppliers and sales agencies to demonstrate the new platform, and every one of them were blown away by its ease-of-use, graphical product presentation capabilities and functionality. Arteriors is the perfect ‘early adopter’ partner as we bring VMi to market.”
Visual Merchandiser is a revolutionary presentation and order capture tool that allows reps to create an unrivaled visual and interactive sales experience - on the road or in the showroom using the hardware of their choice. Literally in seconds reps can, with their retailer, graphically present and build merchandised orders of any complexity including various options and color stories across multiple store types. The program’s “digital whiteboard” allows reps and buyers to actually merchandise product as they build an order. Fixture and/or store sets can also be loaded allowing for groups, color-stories, accessories and rack programs to be added or created with just one click.
