Distributor Computer 2000 will launch a front end ecommerce Web site service for its resellers over the next couple of months as part of its overall plan to get its resellers to adopt its "drop delivery" scheme.
While C2000 claimed that the ecommerce for resellers Web service, called Partner Package, will help increase Web-based sales, C2000 also sees the adoption of the service as a route into being the "ultimate fulfilment house," according to managing director Graeme Watt.
C2000 wants to take over the shipping of product to its resellers' customers - what it calls drop delivery - and sees ordering through the Web as the ideal vehicle to get the process in motion. The distributor currently has 20 true EDI links into key resellers providing information such as pricing, stock availability, special offers and obsolete products.
Watt said that he hopes to extend this service to other resellers who, with the company's ecommerce front end, will then be able to react more quickly to customer demands.
"Partner Package will give the resellers a means to selling on the Web with a direct link into C2000 to check on things like stock availability and pricing," said Watt.
