KHS Bicycles Goes Live with CenterStone For Online Retailer Ordering

Rancho Dominquez, California

KHS Bicycles has gone live with CenterStone Technologies, a Web-based sales order management software, to bring online order entry to retailers. KHS went live on Wednesday, September 21, 2005 and has already started receiving orders using the new system.

KHS customers can now view inventories and order 24/7 directly via Centerstone. KHS has more than eight thousand SKUs currently available.

"We had been looking for a solution for sales order management for quite some time, but until we found CenterStone Technologies, we were not convinced that other vendors truly understood the unique challenges and complexities of the cycling industry," said Wayne D. Gray, Vice President of KHS Bicycles. "To remain competitive, we knew that we needed a sales order management application, and were impressed by the level of professionalism that CenterStone brought to our discussion. Their sales order management application allows KHS to provide 24/7 access to product information and ordering capabilities for our retailers and sales reps."

Tom Detmer, president and CEO of CenterStone Technologies, Inc., commented, "KHS's decision to offer CenterStones solution will allow them to take advantage of the thousands of cycling retailers already using CenterStone's sales order management solution. Dealers and sales reps have been very quick to embrace the CenterStone solution, and we expect that KHS's choice of CenterStone will have a significant, positive impact on their business. Currently more than 8,000 retailers have access to the on-line solution, and this extensive dealer base should be a great benefit to KHS."

"KHS will be leveraging CenterStone's experience with a host of other clients, and it will be particularly valuable for KHS to be showcased alongside such well-known brands as The North Face, Pearl Izumi, Marmot, Helly Hansen and others. This vertical trade environment that is offered through the CenterStone solution will make it that much easier for our customers to do business with KHS," said Gray. "Ultimately, it will allow KHS to serve cycling enthusiasts more efficiently and effectively by getting our quality products to our retailers in a more timely manner. With this new sales order management application KHS expects to set a new standard for customer service in the cycling industry."
