DMF Lighting Adds Portal
DMF also has announced the launch of a purchasing portal exclusive to the CI channel. The portal features the ability to order complete lighting kits, housing, modules, and trim without ever looking at a product number.
The integrator simply selects the type of application, the lighting source features, the preferred visual aesthetic of the trim, and the quantity. The portal automatically ensures compatibility and eliminates errors.
The portal streamlines not only the ordering system but also fulfillment. Most orders ship within two business days. Because DMF has updated the production process to accommodate additional inventory and faster turnaround, some orders will even ship within 24 hours.
