Acsellerate Announces Record Fourth Quarter Sales

Industry Leading Sales Intelligence Solution adds 45 new clients to close a successful 2010

Fort Worth, TX—Wednesday, January 26, 2011  eCommerce Industries, Inc. (ECi), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, announces a record fourth quarter for Acsellerate, the premier sales intelligence solution for independent businesses.  More than 45 new clients were added in the fourth quarter of 2010, joining Acsellerate’s fast-growing account base of almost 400 organizations.

“Acsellerate has been gaining momentum throughout the year, expanding our product offering, growing our team of industry experts, developing new partnerships and becoming an official part of the ECi family,” says Steve Sabatini, President of Acsellerate.  “We are excited and proud that the market is responding and recognizing the Acsellerate team’s unique ability to successfully help customers reach their sales and margin goals.”

2010 was a landmark year for Acsellerate.  The company officially launched their integrated CRM application, formed exclusive partnerships with AOPD, InterBizGroup and Fortune Web marketing, and hired four industry veterans to lead their sales, marketing and training initiatives.  In September, Acsellerate was acquired by ECi and the organization promptly launched Acsellerate in the UK.

Pat Crowley, Vice President of S&T Office Products in St. Paul, MN, chose Acsellerate to help his team of over 30 sales representatives uncover and manage their opportunities.  “When Acsellerate introduced the CRM component, we made a decision we wanted to combine both the data analysis and the CRM into one package and we chose Acsellerate to do that,” reports Crowley. 

“S&T is one of the many customers that chose Acsellerate because of the depth of valuable information we provide to our dealers’ sales and management teams.  We had a fantastic fourth quarter and a record December, but we believe our success in 2010 is just the beginning of our growth,” says Sabatini.  “Our mission has always been to help independent businesses maximize margins, increase customer retention and grow sales.  We will continue to demonstrate how Acsellerate can help dealers reach their sales and margin goals by easily accessing the valuable opportunities hidden within their data.”
