Customer Connect Mobile was developed to help independent dealers win online. As the technology di-vision of United Stationers, MBS Dev formulated this software as part of United’s strategy to provide leading content and capabilities that enable breakthrough merchandising and cross-selling capabilities to their independent dealers.
“As dealers diversify their categories, as they get into breakroom and safety, for example, the mobile plat-form will better enable them to serve different buyers who may not have access to a computer,” said Beckie Watson, chief technology officer of MBS Dev. “Also, as the millennials enter positions of higher influence in business, they will expect their B2B interactions to be as personalized and interactive as their B2C interactions, including the ability to shop anywhere, anytime.”
