Distributors, Dealers, Master Agencies

Any organization that manages multiple supplier relationships can have a Platform as a Profit Center program. Suppliers are motivated to directly engage revenue producers through the PaaPC platform by maintaining and managing online catalogs to distribute content, add promotional material, create calls to action, and correspond with revenue producers.
