6. One point of contact
Dahlsens has been providing our customers with exemplary service since our inception and we know, from our long experience working with our customers, that simplification is the name of the building game.
Every day, our trade builder clients have an array of suppliers and sub-contractors to deal with. Dahlsens plays a role and works closely with you to manage call ups, which reduces the likelihood of forgotten orders, mistakes and confusion.
This delivers peace of mind, reduced hassle and one point of contact for your building supplies means no more hand-balling between suppliers. In addition, Dahlsens simplifies your warranty process, and your build cost reconciliations are made efficient and easy.
Dahlsens invests the time to understand your business so we can tailor our service to meet your needs, including:
- A personalised account management structure
- A profile of your on-hand and future stock needs
- Precise processes to meet your project lead times
- Customised ordering and communication processes that suit your way of working
- The feasibility and potential benefits of incorporating electronic trading into your business.
There’s no substitute for having an Account Manager who is skilled in the industry to take care of our building supplies, end-to-end, so you’ve got one single contact to deal with, not dozens.
