What's included?

Designated Account Manager
Work closely with an assigned account manager (AM) to prioritize tasks, activities, and improvements that can impact your sales, operations, and customer experience. SAS Signature enrollment includes standing weekly 1:1 calls, personalized attention, and access to additional teams via your AM including SAS centralized support, your vendor manager (VM), in stock, and others.
Strategic Business Advice
Your AM will conduct analyses and provide recommendations across key areas that can help grow your business. Depending on your needs, you may receive advice in areas like catalog and branding, inventory and operations, profitability, traffic drivers, conversion, and insights on growth opportunities.
Troubleshooting and Support
While strategic planning and advice is the goal of our program, we understand there are times where additional assistance with issues may be requested. For times when you would like additional help, your AM will have access to a support team to assist.

Our team is ready to assist you with fixing catalog defects, providing detail page recommendations to help improve search results and gain visibility for your products, and drive conversion through executing and monitoring promotions.

If I enroll in SAS Signature, can I expect to receive different or preferential treatment when it comes to Amazon’s policies?
No. Amazon’s policies are the same for all vendors and applied equally, regardless of whether you’re enrolled in our program or not.

Your account manager

Will my account manager be dedicated to my brand (1:1 ratio)?
Our program structure is based on a centralized model. You have our commitment to delivering a high level of service. We flex up or down on resources as needed to best service an account; this includes backend team support as well as AM support. An AM may service more than one account.
What if I am unhappy with the level of service I am receiving?
Vendor satisfaction is a key indicator of our program's and AM's success. It is essential that you participate in our monthly surveys so that we can collect your feedback and action any areas of concern. We also provide a real time feedback link in each AM’s email signature for immediate feedback. You are encouraged to share positive and negative program feedback with our management team and will be provided a direct point of contact that manages your AM.
