Consolidated Supply Co., a distributor serving professional plumbers and utility contractors, has selected InsiteCommerce as the platform for its planned B2B eCommerce solution. The company plans to launch its new eCommerce initiative in March of this year in concurrence with Consolidated's 90th anniversary. Based in Portland, Oregon, Consolidated is an award-winning organization with 17 branches serving customers through the Pacific Northwest.
"At Consolidated our commitment has always been to making it easier for our customers to do their jobs. To deliver on that promise we have to leverage technologies that are becoming an interwoven reality to modern work life," said Josh Schoonmaker, eCommerce manager for Consolidated Supply Co. "Insite Software's solutions have the capability we need in terms of a rich B2B customer experience, 24/7 availability and a fully functional mobile app. Just as important, Insite and our implementation partner Xngage really understand the complexities involved with B2B commerce. They were painstaking in their endeavor to learn as much as possible about the specific needs of Consolidated customers, and our particular technology environment."
Architected for manufacturers and distributors, InsiteCommerce Cloud provides a fully managed, SaaS-based eCommerce solution that delivers B2B commerce capabilities as well as transformative B2C user experiences for desktop and mobile devices. While Consolidated's new eCommerce solution will be customized to meet the design standards of the organization and integrated with its ERP system, 85 percent of the company's core B2B requirements such as pricing, custom catalog and search capability, mobile experience and a robust content management system are provided out of the box. This will shorten considerably the time required for implementation.
