CenterStone Technologies, Inc., an internationally recognized developer of Web-based sales order management software for manufacturers of sporting goods, recreation products, apparel and footwear selling through specialty retailers, today announced that Garmont North America, of Williston, Vermont has selected the company’s online sales order management software application for three of its brands: Garmont boots, Bridgedale socks, and Icebug footwear.

“One of Garmont's key business values is to be easy for our customers to do business with us,” said Bill Hill, Chief Financial Officer of Garmont. “We believe that it is important to be able to provide our customers as many access points to our product as possible. B-to-B e-commerce solutions are an integral part of that. CenterStone's solution is going to allow Garmont to provide 24/7 access to product information, inventory availability and ordering capabilities for our specialty retailers. Garmont will be leveraging CenterStone's experience with a host of other clients, and it will be particularly valuable for Garmont footwear and Bridgedale socks to be showcased alongside such well-known brands as The North Face, Pearl Izumi, Marmot, Helly Hansen and others. This vertical trade show environment that is offered through the CenterStone solution will make it that much easier for our customers – the specialty retailers – to do business with us. Garmont intends to be 'live' on the CenterStone solution at the Summer O.R. show.”

Tom Detmer, president and CEO of CenterStone Technologies, Inc., commented, “It’s great to have them on board. Garmont’s decision to provide the CenterStone’s solution to its sales reps and specialty dealers will allow them to take advantage of the thousands of specialty retailers already using CenterStone’s sales order management solution. Dealers and sales reps have been very quick to adopt the CenterStone solution, and we expect that Garmont’s choice of CenterStone will have a significant, positive impact on their business. Currently more than 8,000 retailers have access to our on-line solution, and this extensive dealer base should be a great benefit to Bill Hill and his team as they continue to grow the Garmont business.”
