Just recently my vehicle engaged an “Auto Breaking” technology to help me avoid making contact with the car in front of me that slammed on its brakes. We were only going about 20 MPH each, in tight traffic, and it’s hard to say if I would have made contact, but regardless the system kicked in to help me avoid the accident. That’s when I had the epiphany, “THAT is a vendor’s job!”.
Let me elaborate.
Any vendor can just be a vehicle for its client. You know, like an order taker that just takes orders on direction, speed, and route to take. Literally anyone can do this, because the vehicle is not adding any value to the driver with its technology (aka experience & creativity). You could drive yourself off a cliff with a vendor who is just a vehicle. This is what many online deep discounting websites offer.
A great vendor, however, is going to have all of the bells & whistles for a fair price. Here are a few car technologies that represent services that Blezoo offers:
AUTO-BREAKS: The last thing you need is a vendor that you need to “check-on”. You are wearing too many hats to keep track of everything. It’s nice to have a vendor who behind the scenes is working for you, making sure things get delivered on-time and done the right way, to make sure that fender bender doesn’t occur.
GPS: There are several decisions that need to be navigated in order to get your products to you on-time. It’s nice to have someone who can navigate the decisions, asking you all the relevant questions, and that can just get the job done. Guiding you through the process so you can stay focused on your day-to-day duties.
ON-STAR/ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE: You had a last minute project sprung into you. You’re stranded on the side of the road on this one and the last thing you want to do is to deal with imprinted water bottles, and especially getting them delivered in 3 days. We’re that 1-on-1 service: the calming voice on the side of the road that finds a way to get it done.
Whether you are looking for talent with a staffing agency, trying to purchase Polos from a promotional products distributor or working on a home renovation, it definitely pays to have a vendor who can provide these value-added services. Otherwise, make sure you have good insurance because by murphy’s law you will be hitting more traffic jams & sustaining some dings along the way.
