StructuredWeb Partners with Supplies Network
Inc., a leading provider of web-based sales and marketing services for office
equipment dealers and Supplies Network, the largest privately owned wholesaler
of IT consumables in the U.S., today announced a strategic partnership between
the two companies that will enable Supplies Network dealers to better utilize
the Internet to promote, sell, and deliver the full Supplies Network product
catalog to their customers.
Through the partnership, StructuredWeb will offer, as part of its managed catalog service, the entire Supplies Network catalog of more than 4,500 items. Through a direct connection between StructuredWeb and Supplies Network the catalog is automatically updated, saving dealers a tremendous amount of time and resources by eliminating manual content updates to their website every time information changes.
“StructuredWeb has become a dominant force in the office supplies industry, and more and more of our channel customers overlap,” says Robert Mondschein, e-commerce manager for Supplies Network. “Our partnership was a natural progression, as it represents a great opportunity between our companies to help independent dealers expand and accelerate their growth.”
With StructuredWeb, dealers can seamlessly and securely incorporate Supplies Network catalog and set up custom pricing and cost structures directly onto their customers – via dealer’s public website or through private portal accounts. Dealers can set up their website or each personalized customer account with specific pricing. Product and pricing can be customized to offer targeted programs to individual customers or groups of customers—directly from their browser, with extraordinary ease.
“Supplies Network is highly focused on helping independent dealers survive, prosper and grow,” states Robert Weiss, vice president of StructuredWeb’s office equipment division. “We are extremely pleased that Supplies Network recognizes the value that StructuredWeb can bring to the dealer sales and marketing process, and we are confident that our solutions will significantly impact those efforts.”
