RangeMe now has a Home page for buyers. The Buyer Home makes it both easier and more efficient for retail buyers to discover new and innovative products that meet consumer demand.
As a buyer on RangeMe, you will be taken to the Home page whenever you log in or when clicking the RangeMe logo at the top-left of your page.
On your new home page, you will always be shown the following discovery options:
- Review products in your categories
- Discover emerging products with RangeMe Collections
- Submissions to your Retailer
You will also be shown the following at random:
- Upcoming ECRM programs
- The next big upcoming tradeshow, and suppliers who will be attending
- RangeMe Verified brands
- Review brands you’ve expressed interest in
- Trending product areas for buyers like you
Each mode of discovery is meant to help ease the process of finding new and relevant products, as well as using the platform as a whole!
Review products in your categories
You will now be able to better visualize which categories you are subscribed to, and what kind of products are within those categories thanks to this new scrollable section.
Browse the sub-categories you have selected by clicking the respective arrow to the left, or to the right. If you are subscribed to more than one type of category (such as Food + Beverage), simply click the category drop-down box to change the selected category you wish to explore.
Should you wish to update your selected parent categories, click the blue “Update your categories” link.
Discover emerging products with RangeMe Collections
Select a RangeMe Collection, to explore curated lists of brands and products that RangeMe has gathered for you, based on the Collection chosen. This is a great tool to use if you’re looking for that next hidden gem!
If your buyer group has opted into receiving Submissions, then you will see Submissions to your retailer on the 3rd row on your home page. Scroll through products 4 at a time or click the “View All” button at the top-right to be taken directly to your Submissions tab!
Upcoming ECRM Programs
You can find relevant ECRM’s programs here. Browse the ECRM collections to see what brands will be attending these programs! If you’re a buyer who will be attending one of these shows, it can be a great way to get a sneak peek and the attending brands, or even a way to set up some meetings on your own time.
You can now review upcoming tradeshows that are relevant to your selected categories! Suppliers often specify which of their brands will be attending these tradeshows, so it’s a great way to get a sneak peek of those attending, as well as a great tool to set up some meetings or find some new interesting brands in the weeks leading up to the show.
If you’re curious to look at the RangeMe Verified brands on the platform, this section will take you straight there! Here, you will only see brands within your subscribed categories that have achieved this Verified status, which means they are retail ready.
Review brands you’ve expressed interest in
Here you will see brands that you may have saved at a previous point in time so you can review them and get in touch.
Trending product areas for buyers like you
RangeMe provides you real-time trends for buyers to explore! Whether it’s CBD, Supplier diversity, or Sustainability, you can always click either of these trending collections and you will be shown brands that meet the selected criteria.
