What is SAVVY and WHY did we develop it?
SAVVY stands for: SPECIAL ACCESS to VIP VENDORS YEARROUND and what this means for you is being able to source products and services for your business in REAL TIME, ANY TIME.
WHY we developed SAVVY.. to empower you and make shopping easier! You will be able to go directly to the company through our SAVVY Platform Portal. We are CONNECTING YOU directly with the COMPANY in real time 24 hours a day 7 days week!
Participating companies will upload available inventory in real time, and the system will remove items as they are purchased, so you will not be left wondering if an item is REALLY available – you will know it immediately. They will still operate with business hours they choose, however, they will be notified when an order is placed so they know to follow up and fulfill the order.
We have also asked our partner companies to narrow down the options so our members can more swiftly place orders for items needed for our business.
This will save you time and focus.
We want to be efficient with our orders and time, and SAVVY will let you do that.
There are many more amazing features of SAVVY that we will be sharing with you as they are confirmed. You will still receive your pre-arranged discounts from our partners, and will be able to check on the status of your orders through the portal as well, communicate with our primary contact, and even schedule deliveries with freight carriers.
WOW! This is going to make is so much EASIER to place orders to things you need. We hope you are excited about SAVVY!
Special THANKS for our fabulous TECH TEAM for their work on the SAVVY Program – Duane, Derrick and Gabe – you guys ROCK! And to Christa Jessup, our Vice President of Vendor Relations for taking the ball and running with it! The initial response from the companies she has spoken to is VERY promising and they are extremely excited and impressed with what IAHSP has developed with the SAVVY Program.
This is yet ANOTHER benefit of being an IAHSP® Member – and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you!
