National Eight-Track Tape Day

National Eight-Track Tape Day on April 11th recognizes an era that was here and gone in a short 20 years.  Nevertheless, it is a day to remember listening to the funky sounds of the sixties and seventies on eight-track tapes.

And for those of us who may have held on to these clunky bits of nostalgia… you never know when that song-ending click will come!

New Procedures for Unresponsive Suppliers

The GTO Accuracy Guru team works tirelessly to ensure you have the most current supplier information.  However, there are times when even our best efforts don’t get a response.

Here’s how we’re handling it:

  1. You request a supplier.
  2. The Accuracy Guru team creates a new supplier in the GTO system or tries to contact the supplier for updated pricing within 24 business hours.
  3. If there is no response, the team follows up every 3 days for 21 days via phone, email, and voicemail.
  4. If there is still no response after 21 days, the request will be moved to “unresponsive status” and you will be notified via email.
  5. Once moved to unresponsive, the supplier request is closed.

If you have information for the supplier or still require their information for an active proposal, please submit another request.  We will then continue to try to connect with the supplier periodically for another 21 days.
