Today’s OEMs can no longer rely on legacy email, file sharing or extranet solutions to work with their distributor and reseller partners. Content, tasks, and feedback, are too easily lost in inboxes, and head office teams often have no way of knowing whether distributors (and their own field reps) are even using the latest versions of a document.
With a Huddle OEM Partner Portal, you can share files, manage tasks, track activity and ensure that everyone has access to the resources they need, when they need it; so that you can maintain quality, compliance and efficiency at every step. Huddle Workspaces can be created for each distributor partner – offering them a branded, and personalized space where they can access the content they need and engage with their OEM account reps and HQ teams.
"NGK Spark Plugs (UK) uses Huddle to help its team better communicate, share content and collaborate with its field reps and distributors".
