Why join forces with TIDAL?

The automotive industry has seen considerable change in recent years, impacting every segment of the market. Some products have become so overdistributed that value has been driven out of the brand.

This means either an alternative to the preferred brand gets introduced, or it sparks a price war which accelerates the “race to the bottom”. Both scenarios have a negative impact on brand image and loyalty.

TIDAL is a selling organisation dedicated to promoting and supporting selected brands in the national arena to ensure maximum sales potential and brand loyalty is achieved.

The benefits of becoming a TIDAL Cornerstone Partner

Given the challenging environment we find ourselves in, it’s vital to ensure we’re doing everything as an industry to help our continued growth. To support our cornerstone partners, TIDAL will be:

A national network built on trust and commitment

TIDAL allows strong independent distributors to stay autonomous and adaptive to their local market, but have the access to a national platform. Customers can be satisfied that the supplier understands thoroughly their local market but at the same time are working with a fully supported supply chain that is working together. Effectively customers don’t choose suppliers, but instead the best network, platform and supply chains. TIDAL understands this and is in the best position to offer this solution.
