“We are very excited about all the new capabilities included in this release of ECinteractive,” says Paul Gatens, Director of Marketing Information at S.P. Richards. “All the enhancements with the SPR PSN make the user experience faster, easier and more informative.”
“We are excited to offer these new features on ECinteractive,” adds Becky Manion, Senior Product Manager, ECinteractive & is.D-Force2. “We are always looking for ways to improve the online shopping experience. We hope that these new features will help drive even more online sales for the independent dealers.”
The new functionality includes:
•One of the top requests from B2B customers has been the ability to sort by price
•Enhancing the content in the Favorites and Quick Order screens provides consistent content regardless of the point of entry by the customer
•Auto-Complete in the search function will make searching easier by providing suggested search terms as the user types, similar to the technology utilized by Google
•The new Ink & Toner Finder is a state-of-the-art service linked to an industry-leading ink and toner cross reference service, a technology SPR licensed on behalf of the dealer community in order to provide up-to-the-minute machine matching functionality
“The partnership between SPR and ECi has never been stronger,” Gatens concludes. “Our joint investments are contributing to a more robust and competitive independent dealer community.”
