Vishay Sales Channel Locator: A Valuable New Tool
Vishay's new Sales Channel Locator system has debuted on the World Wide Web. It provides a quick and easy way for customers to retrieve contact information for Vishay representatives, distributors, and sales offices around the globe. Its design emphasizes "one-stop shopping" by providing immediate results via one universal locator page, as opposed to the less user-friendly click-around systems offered by some of our competitors.
Vishay's elaborate network of over one thousand sales channels, each representing some or all of our products in hundreds of sales territories, required a novel approach to searching. In developing the Sales Channel Locator system, the corporate Marketing Communications Department focused on two questions: What kind of products is the customer looking for? Where is the customer located? When users of the Sales Channel Locator answer these basic questions, a database-generated report delivers address, phone, fax, and product authorization information.
The Sales Channel Locator is a key step towards the goal of making it easier for customers to do business with Vishay. To access it, simply go to the Vishay Web site and click on either the SALES CHANNEL LOCATOR link near the top of the home page or the REPS & DISTRIBUTORS link at the bottom of the page.
