SAN DIEGO — Trade Service and Omni Corporate Services have announced that they will be partnering to offer product and pricing content to Omni member wholesalers. Trade Service said this will enable those wholesale distributors to efficiently update their pricing and product information, effectively merchandise non-stock items, power web-storefronts with attributed content, and enhance overall enterprise system performance.

Omni is a buying group for the plumbing and heating industry. The group includes 240+ wholesale distributors across the United States. Trade Service is a provider of standardized product and price information to multiple industries including plumbing/pipe, valves, and fittings (PVF) and HVACR.

“Omni members will be introduced to a proven method of greater business efficiency,” said Tod Moore, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Trade Service. “Our services are designed to help distributors increase sales, improve customer service, and generally accomplish more using less labor.”

Bob Hoff, president of Omni Corporate Services, said, “Many of our member wholesalers already take advantage of Trade Service products, and this new initiative will help expose our entire membership to content use models and technology that are already critical to competing in today’s challenging business environment.”
