Our website www.koleimports.com was designed to be easy for our customers to use. The site shows all of the newest dollar store items as they come in, and lets customers know what is in stock so they can be sure they will get what they order.
It also shows customers the dollar items they have previously purchased, making reorders that much easier. On-line orders are given to the customer's sales representative, who contacts the customer to arrange delivery.
Koleimports.com is also a great place to find dollar store trade show information and company news. With more than 70,000 visitors per month, the site continues to be very popular with old and new customers alike.
Palm computer programs enable sales representatives to quickly sell wholesale general merchandise in the showrooms and at trade shows, as all necessary information is in the handheld devices including a scanner to scan items into the Palm type devices. This makes the process time of taking orders the fastest in the industry, which saves customers' time while at trade shows or in the Kole Imports dollar store showroom.
The state of the art wireless and handheld device warehouse programs which Jim is currently in the process of implementing will enable quicker picking of orders, better utilization of warehouse space and faster turnover from order to shipping, giving the customer the shortest lead time possible.
The use of cutting edge technologies such as these are another way that Kole Imports continues to lead the dollar store general merchandise business and to provide the kind of customer service that truly makes Kole Imports… your profit source.
