ECi Automates Transactions Between Dealers and Image Star
Fort Worth, TX (June 2009) – ECi Software Solutions, a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, has announced the development of an Internet-based private supply network (PSN) service for Image Star, a leading wholesaler of OEM and compatible imaging supplies. The service provides new operational efficiencies both for the Connecticut-based wholesaler and the independent office products dealers it services.
The PSN enables fast, reliable Internet-based transactions between Image Star and DDMS and Britannia dealers. DDMS and Britannia dealers can use the PSN to access Image Star’s full line of over 5,000 original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and compatible printer, fax, copier, and data media products. DDMS & Britannia dealers can transmit purchase orders and receive acknowledgements via the ECi PSN. DDMS dealers can also perform real-time stock and price checks.
"Image Star is the latest wholesaler to take advantage of the capabilities offered by the ECi PSN,” said Ron Books, President & CEO of ECi Software Solutions. “Using the PSN saves time and money for the dealers as well as their suppliers, enabling the dealers to become more competitive in the marketplace.” ECi currently provides PSN capabilities with over 20 wholesalers and manufacturers, allowing dealers to communicate directly with the wholesaler or manufacturer of their choice via the Internet.
"Leveraging ECi's PSN capabilities enables Image Star to take what is already an outstanding value proposition and move it to the next level,” commented Charlie Antell, Image Star Director of Business Development. “As a result, our customers can now spend less time searching for products or processing orders and more time focused on growing sales and strengthening relationships with their own clients.”
There are no charges or additional fees for the PSN service from either Image Star or ECi. Dealers seeking more information should contact Antell at Image Star (PH: 888-632-5515 x.7317; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
