Cilio Technologies to Exhibit at KBIS 2014 Booth N468
Brookfield, Wisconsin – January 29, 2014 – Cilio Technologies, LLC Partners Portal, a web-based platform that helps manufacturers and builders gain more visibility and control within their trading partner network, announces it will exhibit at KBIS, the leading Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, Feb. 3-6, 2014.
At the show, Cilio will demonstrate how its Partners Portal helps salespersons, manufacturers, builders and retailers increase leads and sales and increase process efficiencies. According to the Home Improvement Research Institute (HIRI), activity in the housing market is expected to continue to climb in 2014, and the home improvement products market is forecast as a growth leader in the US economic recovery as well.
“The Partners Portal technology manages communication and gives control over the order distribution and management process so manufacturers and builders can capture and track orders and view transactions in the same environment. It automates an otherwise cumbersome paper-based and time-intensive process, freeing time to focus on expanding into new sales channels and generating additional revenue,” said Randy Olejnik, President of Cilio Technologies. “It is a key component in managing complex orders, which can often be scattered among a network of distributors, dealers, fabricators and installers.”
Designed as a user-friendly technology that can be up and running in as little as 30 days, the Partners Portal eliminates the need for expensive investments in hardware, software or custom development, according to Olejnik. Its automated, self-service custom reporting feature provides reports on data elements such as order status, product reports, fabricator sales and vendor performance, order aging and product order analysis.
The Cilio Partners Portal has processed nearly $1 billion in sales and related purchase orders with some of the largest building materials manufacturers and retailers in the U.S., helping them to realize increasing margins on their piece of the $31 billion home improvement installed sales channel.
