Lowe's partners with Yardi to offer users the ability to purchase products from LowesForPros.com starting in 2020.
Lowe's uses the right technology and partnerships to work with property management professionals who require a fully automated end-to-end procurement and invoice processing platform. Yardi users can now login to the platform, select Lowe's as vendor and add items from LowesForPros.com to their shopping cart. The order is then approved within the buyer's e-procurement system and sent to a local Lowe's store for fulfillment. In addition to online purchasing, customers can make purchases through the Yardi platform at more than 1,700 U.S. Lowe's stores.
Fred Stokes, Lowe's senior vice president, Pro Sales and Services said:
"Our partnership with Yardi demonstrates our continued progress in making it easier for Pros to grow their businesses with us. Over the past year, we have focused on meeting the basic needs of our Pro customers and now we are investing in new partnerships and improved experiences to better serve this important customer."
Along with this strategic partnership, Lowe's has expanded its e-procurement offering to all Pro users which will help in creating a seamless shopping life cycle.
New customer benefits include the ability to:
- Create custom catalogues to make recurring purchases quick and easy
- Access purchase history reports for all employees
- Set-up and manage tax-exemptions online
- Access Lowe's Business Account support online and in-store
- Apply customer-specific pricing online
- Purchase contractor pack offers online
- Control spend and help protect against fraud with purchase approvals
Akshai Rao, vice president of Yardi Procure to Pay said:
"Yardi works with thousands of client properties whose needs differ, and our partnership with Lowe's gives our users access to countless services and products to continue growing their business. With such a wide selection of products on LowesForPros.com, clients can find exactly what they need to get the job done."
