PLYMOUTH, Minn. — Countrywide Tire & Rubber Co., an international wholesale distributor of tires, inner tubes and wheels, has launched a new website.
The site, countrywidetire.com, offers customers more automated features and more ways to order. Customers now can key orders directly to the site or they can upload spreadsheets directly.
Current price sheets are available for download as well.
Earlier this year, Countrywide launched a text message notifications programs, QuickAlerts, which offers updates on order and shipping status; and QuickNews, which gives information about company promotions and new products releasing.
The site also offers a new tool for ordering, called the container order builder. Customers can put together and place their entire order online, including uploading their order spreadsheets directly, eliminating all keying.
Chad Isaacs, CEO of Countrywide, said his company is on the cutting edge of technology. "This has been a trend for us, to invest in the web experience for our customers.
"The website right now is an interface connecting the customer's system and our system...It reduces cost, it reduces time, and it increases efficiency."
