ProQuip launches online trade ordering

ProQuip, the UK’s best selling rain suit brand, has launched an online ordering service for retailers. Customers can now order products from the Scottish-based weatherwear manufacturer, and check real time stock availability, at the click of a mouse.

Richard Head, ProQuip managing director and chief designer, said, “ProQuip knows a lot about beating the weather but we never pretend to know when it will rain, so our stocking policy is designed to help the retailer sell out, not for us to sell in. Our online trade ordering site is convenient, easy to use and gives retailers the flexibility they need to stock correctly.”

Orders can still be placed with a ProQuip sales representative or agent, by phone and in person, but the benefit of ordering online is that it can be done at the retailer’s convenience, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the site provides real-time, up-to-date stock information.

“Each customer will have a personalised, protected account that lists order history and spend and uses the simple shopping trolley and check-out basket method. As soon as an order is placed, a confirmation email will be sent to the customer with the full order details,” added Richard Head.

To register, retailers should log onto and complete the registration details. As soon as registration is complete, an email will be sent with a login code and password, which can then be used to access the account and the on-line store.

The new website will also be the first place to view ProQuip special offers that will frequently be available, so retailers should register now to avoid missing out.
