ESP Orders Free With ESP Web Platform

Friday January 7, 2011 | Filed under: Industry Initiatives, Member Benefits, News About ASI

“Free” has got to be one of the sweetest words in the English language. We should all hear it more often. So I’m very pleased to announce ASI now offers ESP Orders, the industry’s No. 1 ordering platform, at no charge with our revolutionary ESP Web platform.

Since our initial rollout, the reviews have poured in fast and furious – along with some suggestions for improvement, which we always pay close attention to. Distributors tell us ESP Orders reduces processing time by 73% and suppliers say they’ve noticed a significant improvement in order accuracy.

Here’s what two members told us about their ESP experience:

“ESP Web and Orders have cut my behind-the-desk research time and product order entry time in half, which has allowed me to spend more face time selling,” said Amanda Maxwell, president of Marketing Communications (asi/261624). “I have closed more sales with the help of ESP than I could have ever done in the past, and I no longer make rekeying mistakes because Orders does it all for me.”

“ESP Web and Orders have revolutionized the way we do business,” said Craig Davidiuk, owner of Ultimate Promotions (asi/348057). “I can look up any product in a matter of seconds, create a presentation with my client’s logo on it, email it right to them and close the sale without even hanging up the phone. And, I can create purchase orders in no time. These products streamline the entire process.”

If that wasn’t enough, ASI’s latest version of ESP is now up to two times faster. If you haven’t already signed up for the industry’s most complete, accurate and up-to-date supplier and product database, I have one question for you.
