Integration of two industry-leading sales and margin management tools

S.P. Richards Company and ECI Software Solutions have partnered to integrate the SPR MyAnalyst program with ECI’s Acsellerate to form a powerhouse sales and margin solution for independent resellers.  This new combined platform will marry the MarketLink, BidPro and MyReports components of MyAnalyst with Acsellerate’s robust CRM, Profitability Manager and Business Reviews. The combination offers an enhanced sales and margin management tool not seen before by independent dealers.

“Dealers today, more than ever, need the right tools and guidance to run a profitable business”, said Jim O’Brien, SVP Marketing S.P. Richards Company. “To help them meet the challenges of today’s marketplace, we’ve partnered with ECI Software Solutions bringing the industry’s two leading solutions together in a single platform that will deliver the best technology, consulting, training and support exclusively to Advantage Dealers.”

Acsellerate’s VP Jennifer Johnson added, “Every day, we strive to help empower our customers with the technology to make better decisions, effectively manage their business and fuel their success.  This exciting new platform delivers the best of both worlds to our customers and is a testament to ECI’s and S. P. Richards’ dedication to continuing to invest in our customers and help them invent their future.”

Charlie Kennedy, VP of Sales and Marketing at Kennedy Office Supply, an early implementer of the program had this to share, “The functionality of this program is fantastic. This new tool will save my team hours of time and as a result, my company a lot of money. I love it!”
