PFSweb, Inc. (NASDAQ: PFSW), a global provider of integrated business process outsourcing (BPO) solutions, announced today it has won a three-year contract for a dedicated call center for an undisclosed consumer electronics manufacturer.
The value of the contract and its renewal options were not disclosed.
ÂWe have hired and deployed additional personnel in our Plano call center, expanding our business-to-business call center services for our spare parts offering,Â said Jonathan Walters, Director of Implementation at PFSweb. ÂThe center, which serves U.S. and Canadian customers, went live on March 21 using our in-house systems for order management and customer support services.Â

Those services, under a separate contract, will be performed at PFSwebÂs expanded Airways Distribution Center. (See Feb. 10, 2005 announcement.) The center expects to maintain about 30,000 SKUs and initially to fulfill an estimated 4,000 business-to-business shipments per month to the clientÂs dealers and parts distributors.
