Through use of CenterStone's B2B platform, Haggar Clothing Co. will provide an on-line ordering solution for their North American retail trade accounts, giving users the ability to view automated catalogs, check product availability, place orders, and track and monitor the status of those orders 24/7 via the Web.

“After a seemingly straightforward and simple implementation process, we are now ready to bring our level of customer service to a new high within the organization,” states Tim Lyons, President of Sales, Menswear.  “If you are currently a Haggar and/or Kenneth Cole Reaction retailer, we welcome you to use this site as a way to easily interact with our brands.  If you are new to Haggar and our clothing lines, feel free to preview our product offering and contact us to set-up an account.  We have aggressive goals for continuing to grow Haggar and we know that opening our brand up for business 24 x 7, in this day and age, makes us easier to work with.”

The launch of the new B2B e-commerce site represents a significant milestone in accessibility to the trade channel for the well known and popular men's brand.  The breadth of Haggar product offerings will be directly available on-line for professional buyers, sales reps and customer service professionals, bringing valuable information about availability, order status and other information important to the ordering process, directly into the hands of users who will benefit from the information – anytime and anywhere.
