How does the hot water bottle trading company work and their fatal flaws

This part of the work must be done every day when there is no order. Other work content also includes clean the office and the office of the boss, meet to discuss the order situation, share work experience, etc.

The work for this order is over and then we continue to talk about the order with other customers.

Fatal flaws of hot water bottle trading companies

1. The salesperson is not familiar with the hot water bottle and only pays attention to the rubber content

2. The salesperson is not familiar with the factory operation process, does not know the progress of the order, and often does not know who the final manufacturer of the hot water bottle is

3. The salesperson is only responsible for receiving orders without paying attention to quality control

4. During the production process, the employees of the trading company rarely go to the factory to check the quality, just simply look at the appearance of the hot water bottle before shipment

5. The sales staff frantically lowered prices in an attempt to squeeze every penny of profit. The end result is that the manufacturer can only reduce the quality of the product to gain profit

6. The local trading company in Yangzhou hardly pays any deposit to the manufacturer and the billing period has been delayed for a long time, leading to the loss of many high-quality suppliers

7. The manufacturers of trading companies are almost not fixed. The most troublesome thing is the small quantity and many specifications of orders. Many manufacturers are unwilling to accept this type orders and can only put them to some small workshops, and the quality is not guaranteed.
