Tustin, California-based buying group BrandSource has formed a partnership with Storis, a provider of software solutions for the appliance, bedding, furniture and electronics industries.
“This partnership with Storis can benefit members in many different ways, but perhaps the most important is to be able to provide a fully comprehensive solution to help a dealer manage their business,” said Chad Evans, general manager of merchandising for BrandSource. “This adds to efficiency, which, in turn, adds to profitability and success.”
The software company, based in Mount Arlington, New Jersey, provides digital solutions such as serial tracking, integrated customer services, in-store and mobile point-of-sale materials, inventory management, merchandising tools, e-commerce, in-store kiosk and business intelligence.
“Storis is happy to partner with BrandSource to bring technology solutions to the group,” said Doug Culmone, chief operating officer. “We know our clients have found value in what BrandSource delivers and we look to leverage our technology platform to give them a competitive edge.”
The alliance between BrandSource and Storis grew out of the interest of some BrandSource members, who requested assistance with e-commerce solutions. Through the partnership, BrandSource members can expect industry-specific technology and assistance from knowledgeable professionals who can help them run their multichannel businesses in a unified way, according to a news release. Storis also offers incentivized cloud packages to BrandSource members, including benefits related to implementation services.
Storis will participate in the BrandSource Convention Aug. 26-29 in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace, presenting an educational technology seminar for members.
