MORE SALES AT

LESS COST

The best networking and selling suppliers will do all year is at N1’s annual event. N1 brings the members and suppliers together for face-to-face meetings and networking with the owners. The Group’s marketing programs also help boost supplier sales by keeping their brands and products top of mind.

GROWTH IN YOUR PRODUCT CATEGORY

The members evaluate and advise N1 of the needed number of suppliers in each product category. This practice makes it easy for suppliers to grow in their product category within N1.

SUITE OF BENEFITS

REBATE PROGRAMS THAT DRIVE REPEAT ORDERS

Suppliers offer rebate programs that are ‘earned’ and paid out after the Group purchase plateaus have been achieved. After hitting your targets, members are rewarded with their earned rebate, which then encourages repeat purchases.

A TRUE PARTNERSHIP

N1 doesn’t just ‘check the box’ and collect a rebate from our suppliers. N1 views each supplier partnership as a true partnership where we help each other grow. N1 becomes an extension of your salesforce to facilitate sales opportunities and spread your brand value proposition.

SUPPLIERS ALWAYS GET PAID

As a supplier partner, you can expect a reduction in your days of outstanding receivables, reduce your accounts receivable management costs, and reduce your credit risk as all invoices through the N1 system are guaranteed for payment (some conditions apply).

SALES & MARKETING SUPPORT

N1 Suppliers gain access to a “Playbook” of sales tactics for added sales opportunities communicated directly to the Members through authoritative communication channels. Members recognize these as privileged opportunities and respond well to these exclusive promotions.

HOW TO BECOME A SUPPLIER

Request to Join & Needs Analysis

After expressing interest in becoming a new supplier, N1 will conduct a needs analysis of your proposed product categories. If the supply category is in current need, the supplier will proceed to committee presentation.

Present Offering to Selection committee

N1 will organize a date and time for the supplier to present their offering to the Supplier Selection Committee. N1 provides the supplier with a presentation template to populate with the exact answers the committee is looking for.

The Selection Committee Votes

After careful consideration and due diligence, the Committee will vote to deny or accept the proposed supplier as an N1 Supplier Partner. N1 will present the supplier with a contract if accepted.
