At Ecolink, many of our customers who order acetone are large companies and big organizations, but we also serve small businesses. Small businesses often need cleaning solvents for the same reasons as big businesses, but the economics of solvent purchases can be quite different for these two customer segments.
Every customer wants to purchase solvents economically, but small businesses operating a conservative solvent budget have the most to lose when purchasing chemicals from acetone solvent suppliers. In some cases, the small budget means there’s no financial recourse for purchasing the wrong solvent and/or buying a solvent on the wrong terms.
With this in mind, we look at four crucial services small businesses need from acetone solvent suppliers and sellers of other high-performance solvents. Ecolink offers these services to all of our customers, regardless of their solvent budget, industry, and size.
- Technical Assistance
Some acetone solvent suppliers are vendors who expect customers to know what they need before making a purchase. Large outfits often do know what they need. The person or department that manages solvent orders has professional solvent knowledge.
With small businesses, this is often not the case. They need a supplier to provide pre-sale technical assistance that’s not available in-house. Without assistance, their ability to identify the right solvent is compromised and could lead to purchasing the wrong product for the application.
- Custom Formulations
When a small business receives technical assistance for selecting a solvent, it may find that none of the supplier’s stock products are a good fit for the application. In this situation, receiving a custom formulation that’s tailored to the business’ unique needs is optimal. It’s what a large business would do, and small businesses should follow suit.
- Free Test Samples
You’ve identified what appears to be the right stock or custom solution for the job, but you’d like to see the efficacy of the solution firsthand before making a purchase. When you work with acetone solvent suppliers that offer free test samples, this is a part of the sales process. Once you see how the solution works, you make a highly-informed decision about the purchase.
- Supply on Demand
Small businesses typically use less solvent than big ones. Consequently, they often prefer to order solvent “on demand” instead of taking the opposite approach and buying in bulk. Some acetone solvent suppliers only work with large order customers, while other suppliers provide solvent in almost any useful volume to serve the needs of a broad customer base.
