When it comes to running a performance business, keeping up to date on the latest and greatest products on the market can be challenging. Gone are the days when new products are only released at the big tradeshows, and doing constant internet research can take a big bite out of your shop’s productivity.
Seeing the need for a new way for manufacturers and retailers to connect, Francisque Savinien developed an idea which became EPARTRADE. The name is an abbreviated version of “Electronic Performance And Racing Trade”, which is an apt description of what the service is and what it offers.
Not another E-commerce site, the purpose of EPARTRADE is to connect the industry’s manufacturers and buyers, globally, in business-to-business interactive community. Comprised of two main features, the first is called “Smart Sourcing” where buyers have access to pre-screened suppliers who are known to be able to provide quality racing components.
Smart Sourcing takes the miles of aisles you’d normally walk at trade shows, and puts all that information into a single, constantly updated place on the internet. That central location allows a much more efficient and productive method for sourcing the parts you need for your business, from trusted suppliers. Conversely, EPARTRADE also gives manufacturers a place to showcase their latest and greatest in front of verified buyers 365 days a year. Featuring over 900 product and service categories, to say all the bases are covered might be a bit of an understatement.
The second component of EPARTRADE is the interactive platform for buyers and manufacturers to interact with one another. By providing a network in which everyone participating is a verified, credentialed member of the industry, communication is accomplished in a much more efficient manner, without having to separate the wheat from the chaff.
