Concora and Edgewood Announce Strategic Partnership
Edgewood launches its Digital Experience Platform powered by Concora to streamline product selections and accelerate specifications, sales
Concora, developer of the commercial building products industry’s only Digital Experience Platform, and Edgewood, a wholesaler of high-quality athletic flooring and commercial entrance products in Canada, announced today that both companies have formed a strategic partnership. Edgewood is a full-service wholesaler of commercial entrance products and athletic flooring.
This business alliance begins with the recent and successful commercial launch of Edgewood’s brand new Digital Experience Platform technology, which core architects, engineers and contractors (AECs) can access via Edgewood’s corporate website. The Digital Experience Platform — which serves as an expansive and detailed product information hub for Edgewood’s web visitors — not only serves as a branded extension of the Edgewood corporate website, it also provides architects, engineers and contractors with a simpler method for searching, selecting and specifying its commercial building products.
“AECs are starting to expect to be able to visit websites to get all information needed for specification. Manufacturers have to adapt to keep up, or they run the risk of losing business.”— Eric Snyder
“We’ve been experiencing a fundamental shift in the way building product manufacturers work with AECs, Due to the pandemic, AECs are starting to expect to be able to visit websites to get all information needed for specification. Manufacturers have to adapt to keep up, or they run the risk of losing business. Edgewood is just another great example of how our solutions help save time cross functionally.”— Eric Snyder, CEO of Concora.
“Now more than ever, our design community requires a digitally-driven product selection experience that accelerates its projects and removes unnecessary barriers,With competition so widespread, one critical gap in the user’s product selection experience could mean lost opportunities. Concora’s Digital Experience Platform closes those gaps in our long-term sales and marketing strategies.”
— said Shaun Collins, General Manager at Edgewood.
“Having our core Edgewood products and associated technical documentation housed in one central location for designers, including user history and activities, gives us a competitive edge for specification.”
— Concludes Collins.
