MarketTime, a provider of best-in-class B2B software as a service (SaaS) solutions for the business of wholesale and retail, will debut an Experience Center during the upcoming Total Home & Gift Market at Dallas Market Center, January 6-12, 2021. The MarketTime Experience Center, located on the first floor of the World Trade Center adjacent to Starbucks in WTC 139, will showcase MarketTime’s full suite of software solutions supporting business management and growth as well as supporting a global e-commerce marketplace.

The MarketTime Experience Center, open during market hours for Total Home & Gift Market but also for Apparel & Accessories Market and KidsWorld (January 12-15) as well as WESA’s International Western/English Apparel & Equipment Market (January 14-17), will provide hands-on demonstrations of the MarketTime tools, all of which are available today. MarketTime will also provide supporting information and personnel to discuss MarketTime advantages and ease of integration. This “test-drive” environment of an active and available suite of B2B software solutions, which also support global e-commerce, will be the first of its kind in the United States, according to Dallas Market Center.

“It’s critical that our unrivaled online experience be powered by the best in-person experience,” said Hemal Patel, founder and CEO of MarketTime. “That’s why the Experience Center will showcase the best qualities of our software and the physical Dallas market — new product discovery, trend exploration and strong relationships. Inside our Experience Center, guests will see firsthand just how simple [MarketTime is] to use and how intuitive our tools are while also seeing how MarketTime creates a supportive online community that is by the industry for the industry.”  

Added Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center: “MarketTime is more than tech tools; it’s a B2B community supporting business growth and bridging physical and online marketplaces. Everything you love about our physical marketplace – friendly interactions, unique points of view and curated offerings – is now at your fingertips and available around the clock. We are confident that the MarketTime Experience Center will amaze everyone by allowing guests to experience in real-time the full power of the software, see what’s available immediately to support business expansion, and demonstrate that this is the best system for connecting worldwide to physical and digital markets.”

MarketTime is a fully integrated, cloud-based platform supporting the complete omnichannel customer ecosystem across the consumer products spectrum including fashion, home, lighting, gift and toys. It also bridges online and physical marketplaces on multiple continents – supported by Dallas Market Center and the Brussels Trade Mart. Additional marketplace partners around the world will be forthcoming.

The MarketTime benefits are threaded throughout its platform for manufacturers, sales teams and retailers. First and foremost, the solution is easy to set-up and get started. Anyone transitioning from an existing platform will be able to do so with a simple data exchange, according to the company. Furthermore, MarketTime has efficiently solved challenges such as management and security of data, order transmission and tracking, expanding sales territories, customer service and commission processing. 

For manufacturers, this includes managing sales orders and product data, promotions, shipping information and useful documents for approved sales agencies and their salespeople. 

For sales teams including agencies and sales representatives, this includes tools for shared data to generate sales orders, track invoicing and commissions, and managing back office tasks. 

For retailers, this includes sales tracking, new resource discovery and review, and placing orders through a B2B e-commerce marketplace with thousands of products from leading brands across a wide range product categories.

MarketTime’s growing customer base includes thousands of iconic brands such as Mattel, Fisher Price, Aurora World, Schylling Toys, and Playmobil; and leading multi-line sales agencies across multiple industries including Diverse Marketing, NextGen Dallas, Gifts of Nature, Salesmark, Toyology Toys, Brad Hughes & Associates, Indigo Agency, and In-Detail. MarketTime’s ability to increase sales the first year can be as high as 22 percent year over year, the company noted.
