It’s a well known online purchasing routine: Enter a search term> Click the Find/Browse button > Add to basket> Checkout.
Whilst logical and systematic, this common method for online purchasing comes with a set of shortcomings. When buying patterns become more complex, established or predictable.
Let’s say you have a fleet of Atlas Copco Drills and Hitachi Excavators that are coming up for service work. Most online buying systems require a list of dozens if not hundreds of parts to be entered – one by one. The common method becomes a repetitive task, susceptible to “square eye” syndrome, errors and time wastage.
As a Geographe customer, it can be useful to know that you don’t have to take the traditional route, ensuring you not only buy what you intend to, but save yourself valuable time in the process with the following suggestions:
1. Make sure you are an account holder
This may seem obvious, however, if you are not already an account holder wishing to view prices and availability, your full access may take up to 72 hours to approve. So be prepared in advance and open an account today at store.geographe.com.au.
2. Search using OEM part numbers
We update our cross referred numbers regularly and searching an OEM part number is the quickest way to find what you are looking for. It will also cross refer the part you need to our Geographe reference number.
3. Mass Upload – Quickly populate your cart using a list
Save the effort in the common method of purchasing (ie: search, find, add, check out) by using the “import csv file” function on the site. This system works by uploading directly into your shopping cart the list of parts in your spreadsheet whether it be 5 or 500, eliminating the need to search and browse first for individual items. Magic. This feature only works uploading Geographe part numbers.
