Retail and manufacturing B2B exchange services company SPS Commerce launched a
Yellow Pages directory, calling the move “part of the company’s commitment to
customer-focused services to small and mid-sized businesses.”
The directory represents “the next generation of sophisticated,
pre-qualified, electronically capable companies currently doing business on
the SPS Commerce exchange,” enabling retail and manufacturing companies to
trade with these vendors instantly without encountering compliance or
technology issues, the company said.
The directory provides profiles of vendors and buyers in SPS’ trading
community. Retailers and manufacturers can now source new products and locate
new vendors online from one central access point.
Once a new vendor is
identified, the buyer has immediate access to that vendor’s contact
information and online product catalog that details product
descriptions, sizes, cost and availability.
All vendors listed are electronically enabled, assuring the retailers and
that the vendor they choose can comply with their electronic requirements,
“This new yellow pages directory service is the latest innovation to our
exchange services, and is designed to enable our customers and their vendors
to streamline supply
chain processes for better e-business,” aid Steve Waldron, president and chief executive officer
of SPS Commerce.
The Yellow Pages Directory is the second in a series of planned exchange
services SPS will launch. Earlier this year, SPS unveiled an online product
catalog, which provides both buyers and vendors with a way to maintain and
access detailed product information.
