MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Consolidated Supply Co., a leading 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 specifically for manufacturers and distributors, InsiteCommerce Cloud provides a fully managed, SaaS-based eCommerce solution that delivers deep native 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% 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, making it possible to launch Consolidated's new digital commerce solution in conjunction with their 90th anniversary in March.
"Consolidated Supply Co. is fortunate that their leadership understands this new eCommerce system is much more than an online ordering application. They know that by partnering with Insite Software, they're continuing a true digital transformation for their business," said Karie Daudt, Vice President of Marketing and Customer Experience for Insite Software. "Consolidated has an incredible 90-year history of providing extraordinary value for its customers. We're honored to be the chosen partner to help deliver the next 90 years of value."
