ECi Software Solutions announced the latest integration of its Private Supply Network (PSN) with B O X Partners, a leading wholesaler of packaging, shipping and industrial supplies. This integration provides a new workflow for independent dealers who use ECi DDMS software to purchase directly from BOX.
It will allow dealers to add an expansive selection of quality products to their current online offering and provide their customers with a more comprehensive shopping experience.“The astonishing growth of e-commerce has created abundant opportunity in the packaging and shipping business,” said David Burbrink, Vice President of B O X Partners. “It is estimated that small parcel shipments within the U.S. exceeded nine billion packages in 2014.
With an anticipated growth of 10 percent in 2015, the total number of packages needed to feed the online shopping engines equals a very healthy growth opportunity for office supply dealers who choose to participate in this channel.”“As a platform for vendor communication, the ECi PSN enables the independent dealer to strengthen supply chain capabilities and offer a wider range of products with leading wholesalers like B O X,” said Tom Kapp, Executive Vice President of ECi Software Solutions. “This PSN integration is tightly woven into DDMS, ECi’s leading software solution for the office product industry. Our joint effort will provide our mutual customers with a powerful tool to improve productivity and enhance profitability.”
