(PRWEB) June 22, 2005
CenterStone Technologies, Inc., an internationally recognized developer of Web-based sales order management software for manufacturers of sporting goods, recreation products, apparel and footwear selling through specialty retailers, today announced the availability of iVendix, its second-generation Sales Order Management application.
CenterStone makes it easier and more profitable for vendors to do business with specialty retailers by driving increased sales while also reducing order costs by as much as 75%,Â said Tom Detmer, president and C.E.O. of CenterStone. ÂUntil recently, our efforts were focused on North American markets. With the launch of iVendix we can now provide our clients with the truly global solution todayÂs business environment requires.Â
CenterStoneÂs iVendix solution will help advance the global business interests of those CenterStone clients that already have an international presence as well as those with international aspirations. CenterStoneÂs iVendix global application is already receiving orders from 16 countries in Europe in 5 languages and 7 currencies. The technology is now proven in markets outside of North America.
The iVendix application is also available with an Off-Line module that is designed to allow sales reps to work more effectively while they are on the road visiting accounts, showing the line, and taking preseason and re-stocking orders. It allows sales reps to take orders while in the field, synch up the orders at the end of the day, and transmit those orders into the vendorÂs ERP system. The Off-Line application has been particularly well-received by sales reps in Europe. It is anticipated to be just as well-received by sales reps in North America where there is a need for such a tool to help with the large volume of preseason business that is placed through sales reps. Sales reps in North America who are using the current CenterStone technology have seen a 30% increase in productivity. The Off-Line enhancement offered by iVendix, will make these sales reps and others, even more effective.
A blue chip list of well-respected, world-wide brands currently using CenterStoneÂs technology including: The North Face, Helly Hansen, Ripcurl, Ex Officio, Marmot, Pearl Izumi, KHS Bicycles, Jansport, Sport Obermeyer and many others.
