Datastream Systems, Inc. announced that Ryan Herco Products, Atlantic Fasteners and Light Bulb Supply Company have joined the iProcureTM marketplace as strategic supplier partners. Through the additional suppliers, the iProcureTM network now offers customers a richer selection of MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) parts and supplies. These suppliers enhance the current iProcureTM network offerings with specialized products in their respective fields-specifically, fluid flow products, commercial fasteners and specialty lighting.
Ryan Herco, Atlantic Fasteners and Light Bulb Supply Company join current iProcure suppliers such as Applied Industrial Technologies, Fastenal Company, Ferguson Enterprises, LL National, PurchasingCenter.com and WESCO Distribution. With approximately 20 industry-leading suppliers, the iProcureTM network offers its customer base access to a comprehensive source for online procurement of industrial goods and services.
"iProcure eliminates the hassles typically associated with ordering parts and supplies for manufacturing plants and facilities," said Frank Gibbs, president of Ryan Herco Products. "What used to be a time-consuming process is now simplified by the joining of the Web with demand-driven procurement systems. iProcure enables us to offer our catalog listings to a much broader audience and ultimately extend the range of potential customers."
"Our customers have adopted the Internet as an integral element of their procurement processes," said Paula Leake, president of Light Bulb Supply Company. "iProcure is a natural next step for us to offer our customers a higher level of service and help them save valuable time and money with a fully-automated procurement system."
"The key to success for online marketplaces is attracting and maintaining customers," said John Sterling, president of the iProcure division of Datastream. "By connecting iProcure users with familiar, industry-leading suppliers, we are ensuring our marketplace is built on a strong backbone of long-standing relationships between industry specialists. The addition of Ryan Herco, Light Bulb Supply and Atlantic not only benefits individual iProcure users who have worked with the suppliers in the past, but also reaches out to the entire iProcure customer base who would otherwise not have had direct access to these suppliers."
