System Solutions Limited (SSI) Announces the Implementation of SmartSearch Into its Iindustry Leading SSIWEB eCommerce Platform
Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, CAN (October, 2008) – System Solutions Limited (SSI), one of North America’s leading OP Industry software providers, is pleased to announce that they will be among the first to implement the new, feature rich SmartSearch technology into their SSIWEB e-Commerce solution.
SmartSearch is United Stationers’ enhanced search engine and product content system that raises the bar on search, navigation, and product content. Recognizing that SmartSearch will add tremendous value to the online business of their Dealers, SSI has undertaken significant investment to integrate SmartSearch into its web content management system.
Dealers will benefit from the integration by offering their customers a more sophisticated and user friendly shopping experience. By gaining more information, such as better descriptions, images, and product comparisons, they can make a more informed buying decision. This results in reduced cost, smoother supply chain processes and loyal customers. SSI’s development of SmartSearch is largely completed. Beta testing is to begin in December 2008 with a target release date of January 2009.
“This release of the SmartSearch capability by SSI is another important step in making it available to a broad number of dealers,” said Dave Bent, United Stationers Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer. “We’re pleased to work closely with SSI to help improve dealers’ access to world-class content and state-of-the-art search and navigation that will strengthen their eCommerce expertise.”

Developed by SSI with significant client input, the system has all the features that business-to-business and consumers demand - easy order entry in multiple ways through advanced shopping cart technology. It is fully integrated to the SSI Distribution System featuring powerful, easy to use applications built on a solid LINUX platform. SSI has been specializing in complete OP Dealer systems since 1980. Their reputation is built on continuous software improvement and development incorporating the latest technologies, reliable, fast and experienced customer support, understanding the OP business and dedication to their clients’ success.
