ATLANTA, GA — BuildNet, Inc., based here, announced that its HVAConline community has signed an agreement with Sealed Unit Parts Co., Inc. (SUPCO), with plans to enable its more than 1,200 distributors nationwide to use BuildNet to issue purchase orders and receive invoices directly from their back-office systems.

When enabled, BuildNet said it hopes HVAConline will link SUPCO to distributors’ existing accounting systems, so that purchase-order information can be easily exchanged from one back-office system to another.

“The Internet is bringing new opportunities to industries everywhere, including the hvacr industry, and with the relationships HVAConline has built within the industry, we have great confidence that their solution should give us a strategic advantage,” said Joseph Natoli, director of sales and marketing for SUPCO.
