Catalogues



IDI takes the complexity out of catalogues. We recognized the generational shift from paper to electronic and introduced the IDI Centralized Electronic Product Database. Our dedicated team collects and manages data from hundreds of vendors, giving our member shareholders instant access to your products. READ MORE



Communication



IDI is notable for our transparent communication to both shareholder members and vendors, through such proprietary systems as IDI Rebate Tracker and the IDI Value Card. These are the cornerstones of the high level of engagement IDI approved vendors enjoy through our organization. READ MORE



IDI Distribution Centre



Through the IDI Distribution Centre, we provide a powerful platform that enables our vendors broaden their reach to all IDI shareholder members. Now vendors can service IDI shareholder members – large and small – on a weekly basis. READ MORE



National Accounts



Most independent distributors fear that last minute call from a long-standing customer informing them that they are issuing an RFP for an integrated supplier agreement. It likely means one thing: the business is being switched to a national chain. Relax. As an IDI vendor, you have access to the resources that protect your vendor relationships against sudden setbacks. READ MORE



Marketing
