Supplies Network and The Office Supply Chain

St. Charles, MO, November 16, 2012

Supplies Network, the largest privately owned wholesaler of IT consumables in the U.S. and the Intec 2012 Wholesaler of the Year, and The Office Supply Chain, a leading developer of ROI driven web businesses, are proud to announce a new program designed to help resellers find new customers, increase sales and retain existing clients.

The Office Supply Chain has developed a cost effective and highly efficient customer-centric online business model for the ink & toner reseller, which is unlike anything else on the market today. The program offers Supplies Network resellers a full range of web development services – from the development of an e-commerce web site with a turnkey back-end for processing orders, to online marketing tools and strategies designed to increase traffic, conversion and revenues.

“The Office Supply Chain fills the gap between off-the-shelf applications that may not meet an individual dealer’s needs, and a custom developed application that requires significant time and financial investment. With The Office Supply Chain, a dealer can leverage a robust modular application that can grow with the dealer, as well as flex and bend to accommodate special requirements.

Further, The Office Supply Chain has a wealth of experience in generating online revenue that any dealer would benefit from. We look forward to our partnership with The Office Supply Chain in helping SN dealers succeed and prosper.” Bob Mondschein, eBusiness Manager, Supplies Network. With over 17 years of experience in web site development, e-commerce strategy, marketing and communications, The Office Supply Chain (www.theofficesupplychain.com) is a leader in creating, launching and managing innovative and revenue generating online businesses. “An effective online business strategy needs to focus on driving traffic and generating revenues,” says Stephen Padveen, senior partner of The Office Supply Chain. “Many online solutions focus on back end office management but if your online business can’t attract and convert visitors to buyers, even the best back end office solution on the market won’t help you”.

The Office Supply Chain uses proven business strategies combined with leading edge technology, online applications, social media tools, cross channel selling platforms and a multi step action plan to deliver cutting edge, forward thinking and ROI driven web sites that drive traffic and increase revenues for business owners. “A well designed and properly executed online business can engage customers unlike any other traditional marketing medium,” says Padveen. “You need to be able to build your business, retain customers, remarket to your visitors and generate customer loyalty. E-mail campaigns, social media marketing, cross channel selling capabilities, couponing, SEO, mobile and tablet compatibility are just a few of the marketing and selling features that must be part of your web business.” For a more comprehensive overview of The Office Supply Chain’s online program for re-sellers, view the presentation at www.distributionmgmt.com and click on the link to Software Spotlight.
