(CHICAGO) – August 20th, 2020 – ES Tech Group, a leading B2B e-commerce solution provider serving numerous distribution industries, including business products, jansan, electrical, plumbing, and industrial, is pleased to announce it has become an Associate Supplier to Network Services Company, a leading global B2B distributor.
"ES Tech Group’s eCommerce solution, EvolutionX, offers NETWORK distributor partners a scalable ecommerce solution appropriate for organizations of varying sizes." says Amanda Jackson, Manager of Associate Supplier Programs at NETWORK. "ES Tech Group helps mitigate the complexity and high cost of setting up and running an eCommerce platform."

EvolutionX is the website and eCommerce engine for over 300 distributors in various industries across North America and Europe. The platform is massively scalable, secure and robust. It is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that is proven to enable independent distributors to compete and win against the largest and most sophisticated online competitors.

According to ES Tech Group’s President of US Operations, Dave Bent, "Establishing and running a world-class B2B eCommerce website is viewed by many distributors as a daunting and expensive endeavor. We have built our business on making sure we change this paradigm. Our team has decades of distribution industry experience and we view our role as helping distributors create the best omni-channel customer engagement that enables them to grow sales with both existing and new customers. We have helped numerous distributors make their first webstore moves by providing catalog-only websites where we set-up a corporate site and an online catalog that replaces a supplier line card and can facilitate online quoting as a first step towards eCommerce. We have also enabled larger sophisticated distributors to replace their existing eCommerce platforms that have failed to provide the flexibility and end-customer experience that today’s online buyers have come to expect - we call these eCommerce 2.0 customers."

"Having personally led several B2B eCommerce initiatives for distributors during my career", adds Bent, "I have learned that, as ES Tech Group, we must help the distributor solve the complete eCommerce challenge: we call this Commerce–Content–Connected. This means the best commerce platform, combined with the best rich product content, connected to the distributor’s ERP platform. Distributors can sign-up with ES Tech Group as the single partner to solve this entire challenge.

Helping our members accelerate their online capabilities is one of NETWORK’s top initiatives, says Ms. Jackson. "ES Tech Group provides our distributors affordable options that fit their individual needs, and with quick time-to-market."
