As such, these dealers will be able “to add an expansive selection of quality products to their current online offering and provide their customers with a more comprehensive shopping experience.”
David Burbrink, President of B O X Partners, said: “The astonishing growth of e-commerce has created abundant opportunity in the packaging and shipping business.
“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.”
ECi Executive Vice President Tom Kapp said: “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.
“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.”
