JLM Wholesale Delivers Improved Customer Service and Efficiency with Modern B2B Ecommerce Website

Hardware wholesaler gains eCommerce website with intuitive PIM, seamless ERP integration and game-changing automation.

"Our customers can shop more easily and our staff has gotten back hours of work time thanks to the automation. It's been huge." – Dennis Ingamells, CFO, JLM Wholesale

    MINNEAPOLIS, MN, September 15, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Channel Software, an industry-leading provider of purpose-built B2B eCommerce software, has published a new case study detailing how JLM Wholesale has improved automation, efficiency, and service with its robust B2B eCommerce website. JLM is a leading U.S. security door hardware wholesaler.

When Infor announced it was sunsetting the Storefront eCommerce product and support, JLM searched for a new B2B eCommerce provider. It selected Channel Software's CSX eCommerce platform, which offers a robust, purpose-built B2B platform, flexible tools that can cater to a customer's specific needs, and a built-in product information management (PIM) system.

Today, JLM has a site that is easier to manage on the back end and easier for customers who shop it. Due to the ease of the ordering functionality and tools, customers are contacting JLM less often, which has freed up the inside sales team to focus on other work. The PIM's automatic inventory updates have also given the team back more time; for example, 25,000 items can now be imported and updated instantly. On the customer side, JLM site users can view list prices and wholesale prices, so they're better informed and more accurate when quoting jobs.

"We wanted to give our customers an Amazon-like experience…a really easy-to-use, easy-to-buy-from website," said Dennis Ingamells, CFO of JLM Wholesale. "Our customers can shop more easily and our staff has gotten back hours of work time thanks to the automation. It's been huge."

"An intuitive, flexible B2B eCommerce platform enables small and mid-sized companies compete with the biggest players in their industry," said Curt Olson, president of Channel Software. "B2B customers want an Amazon-like experience and we're proud to help companies like JLM Wholesale deliver that."
