CenterStone Technologies, Inc., an international developer of Web-based B2B e-commerce software for manufacturers selling through specialty retail channels, today announced that Timbuk2 is now “live” on the company's iVendix software application. iVendix provides Timbuk2 with a business-to-business (B2B) on-line ordering solution for their retail dealers and sales reps. Dealers and sales reps are now able to view automated catalogs, check on the availability of product, place orders, and track and monitor the status of those orders using iVendix because it is accessible 24/7 via the Web.

“Timbuk2 is always looking for ways to make things easier for our customers. That's why we've partnered with CenterStone's iVendix to provide our retail customers with a proven B2B order management system that is easy to use and has the best adoption rate and track record in the specialty retail industry,” stated Mark O'Keefe,Timbuk2's service center manager. “CenterStone will help us remain easy to work with by allowing our dealers and sales reps to place orders 24/7 at their convenience. At Timbuk2, we are committed to manufacturing the best messenger bags, backpacks and totes on the planet, and CenterStone will help ensure that we are also the easiest company to do business with,” he added.

“Timbuk2 is now ‘live' on iVendix and open for business 24/7. We are seeing more and more companies come to the realization – as the management team at Timbuk2 has – that their B2B site, targeted at specialty retailers and sales reps, is as important as their B2C Web site, which is targeted at consumers. Essentially, iVendix becomes the foundation for their B2B internet strategy for their retailer community,” commented Tom Detmer, CEO of CenterStone Technologies. “In addition to being an order-taking engine for dealers and sales reps, this new Timbuk2-branded B2B e-commerce solution can deliver targeted marketing messages and promotions to these other customers, the specialty retail, wholesale buyers. In reality, who spends more dollars directly with a manufacturer, an individual consumer or their specialty retailers? We are excited that Timbuk2 has recognized the potential of iVendix as their B2B e-commerce solution, and with more than 12,000 active users of our Web-based B2B application, we are confident that dealers will also be quick to embrace iVendix for Timbuk2,” added Detmer.
