Northwest Stoves is the exclusive distributor in BC, Alberta and the Yukon for six different fireplace and stove manufacturers. While they do not sell directly to the public, promoting their brands and models and directing visitors to dealer sites, contributes to increased sales.
The primary purpose of their website however is a functional one – to keep their dealers up to date with ready access to product information including sales brochures, installation and safety information.
A custom designed database keeps track of dealers and which brands and products they sell. When new material is added to the database, an alert is only sent out to the dealers who need it.
This site was built using Microsoft Sharepoint for content management. Functionality was enhanced with a custom built dealer management and document retrieval system designed to manage hundreds of dealers and thousands of documents and technical manuals.
