Suppliers' self service

DLF's database of equipment and equipment suppliers contains details of thousands of products and suppliers. To help DLF keep important information up-to-date DLF has developed a web-based Self-Service System that suppliers can use to update some of their own information.

If you are a national supplier of daily living equipment (i.e. not a local retailer) and are already listed as a supplier on our database, you can register to use the Self-Service system by following the simple instructions. Please bookmark the site for future use.

If you have any problems using the system please contact our Data Services team on 020 7289 6111 or email data.services@dlf.org.uk

The Self Service System allows you to: 

  • Update your company contact details
  • Update the list of products that you supply
  • Update your products’ prices, names and weblinks - please note our user testing shows that people who visit our websites generally prefer to contact companies who provide a price and don't say POA
  • Add YouTube™ videos and manuals for your products
  • Notify us of new products
  • If you are a manufacturer, you can add your own description of your products and change the image

Why should you update your information? 

  • With hundreds of thousands of people visiting DLF's new websites every month, you will want to make sure they get the most up-to-date information about your products
  • DLF's rating systems in 'Living made easy' and AskSARA are based on certain criteria such as whether companies have provided a price and whether they are a member of certain trade associations, such as the BHTA. By providing this information you can ensure that you maximise your ratings in the websites and thus appear higher in the lists.

If you have several products then you may wish to enquire about the possibility of sending us a spreadsheet for entry into our new spreadsheet batch importer.
