Atlanta, GA (Vocus) March 30, 2010
Edgenet, Inc., a leading provider of data, advertising and selling solutions, today announced that Pipeline Supply, the leading distributor of plumbing supplies, has selected Edgenet’s Big Hammer data services for product information management and distribution.
Steve Singer, Pipeline Supply’s President said, “Pipeline Supply is very excited about our partnership with Edgenet and look forward to the new level it will take us on the internet, through print catalogs and in-store business. Many of the suppliers that we already do business with see the large advantage of Edgenet’s Big Hammer data services and our goal is to use this successfully established service to continually increase sales rather than re-creating the wheel. Edgenet provides a streamlined and flexible method of data management and that is critical for the success of our suppliers. The decision to receive data from Edgenet was a clear choice because we significantly increase the quality of our product information and accelerate our in-store and ecommerce initiatives.”
“We are pleased to welcome Pipeline Supply into the Edgenet Network. This partnership means our hardlines customers can extend their reach to new endpoints and Pipeline Supply suppliers are guaranteed to present the highest quality data,” said John Sullivan, VP of Data Services at Edgenet. Sullivan went on to say “We are always seeking ways to increase value for our suppliers. Adding strong endpoints like Pipeline Supply does just that.”
