DDS (Distributor Data Solutions), an e-commerce product content provider serving the electrical, plumbing, HVAC and related industries, has become a Member Service Provider to IMARK Group, Inc., the largest network of independently owned electrical and plumbing distributors in the U.S. and Canada, with more than 1,400 independently owned distributors as members.
“DDS is providing a much-needed service for a number of our members in supporting their customers who are asking for better product information and a better online experience,” says Steve Ruane, VP, Marketing and Member Services at IMARK Group. “We like that DDS offers various solutions that can help each of our member distributors—whether small, medium or large, and across multiple industries—and whether they’re just entering the e-commerce space, or looking to improve their existing online offering.”
According to DDS’ vice president Matt Christensen, “Creating an excellent online customer experience requires much more than an e-commerce platform. You need to deliver all the product content that contractors, MRO buyers and engineers need to make product selection decisions. We leverage the most advanced technology in the world, and some incredibly talented data analysts and software engineers, to manage distributors’ e-commerce product data at scale.”
