Deploy a modern customer experience on your website in weeks with Knowde.
If you’re familiar with Knowde, you probably think of us as an online marketplace. The Knowde Marketplace has grown exponentially over the past few years, now featuring 8,000+ suppliers and more than 250K+ products.
Now we’re taking the next step in our mission to bring the entire industry into the digital world. We’re constantly listening to our customers and we heard loud and clear that suppliers want to leverage the power of Knowde’s platform beyond the marketplace by bringing our industry-leading technology to existing websites and delivering value wherever their customers are online.
We’re excited to announce that our newest platform functionality makes it easy for suppliers to modernize the digital customer experience by deploying Knowde’s software on your existing website — and turn it into a growth tool for your sales team.
Your website is a huge, untapped growth opportunity.
Most suppliers rely on field sales or distribution partners to reach and engage customers. But this approach is expensive, inefficient, and impossible to scale. It’s tough for sales teams to reach customers at that exact moment when they’re working on a project in the lab that’s relevant to one of your products.
Meanwhile, the world has gone digital, and customers — especially younger buyers stepping into leadership roles — are spending more and more of their time online. Our industry is following suit, meaning customers worldwide come to your website to find products daily.
“Generational shifts in the workplace are turning the business buying process on its head. Lack of understanding about millennial and Gen Z buying behaviors can adversely affect providers’ ability to reach, engage, and ultimately win these buyers over.”— Amy Hayes, VP and Research Director at Forrester

Today, typical supplier websites in our industry don’t meet modern customers’ needs. Customers want to search and browse your products and learn about them. They want an easy way to ask an expert if they have a question. And when they need a document, sample or quote, they want to request them online. If you aren’t helping customers through an online buying journey, you’re missing out on sales and driving leads to your competition.
Creating a modern online experience isn’t easy.
There’s a reason many websites in our industry leave customers wanting more: building an online customer experience that supports the entire buying journey takes a lot of work. Your website serves many audiences — investors, employees, suppliers, and customers — which adds complexity. And in most cases, you and your agency lack the digital and technical skills to take on a customer-focused website project.
