DistributorCentral (UPIC: DC) and eBlox (UPIC: eblox), both web technology providers serving the promotional products industry, have entered into a collaborative relationship to enable improved product data dissemination and more convenient access for distributors.
eBlox, based in Austin, Texas, is now able to directly extract data from the centralized product database hosted by DistributorCentral, headquartered near Kansas City. The integration is the first of its kind for both companies.
According to Brent Buford, eBlox CEO, the primary advantage of the integration with DistributorCentral will be both speed and improved accuracy.
While product data is critical to eBlox’s ability to support customers, Buford said the company’s primary focus is providing customizable e-commerce solutions to the promotional products industry. Relying on DistributorCentral to access suppliers’ product information enables eBlox to concentrate on building robust e-commerce solutions for its clients.
