UptimeOne Inc., a total solutions provider (TSP) for e-business, announced today the creation of a business-to-business e-commerce site for The Green Valley Pecan Company, the world’s foremost supplier of premium quality pecans.

The total e-business solution will streamline traditional business processes, improve efficiency and enable Green Valley Pecan to quickly and profitably reach a new market of customers over the Internet.

The new e-business system allows Green Valley Pecan to focus on what they do best — selling premium pecans. The UptimeOne solution improves efficiency for Green Valley Pecan by automating routine business tasks, which saves administration costs. The new B2B site also reaches a larger network of customers by allowing them to purchase products online directly from Green Valley Pecan.

UptimeOne’s e-business solution provides Green Valley Pecan with order entry, catalog and order management on its Web site. This cost-effective solution allows Green Valley Pecan to streamline their order processing, sell directly to customers, and offer preferred pricing levels based on customers’ buying habits, such as order volume. Order management allows customers to track the status of their orders, place new ones and review their contracts 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Overall, customers will be provided with an easy and trouble-free shopping experience. To round out the total solution offering, UptimeOne provides additional value-added services for Green Valley Pecan such as hosting the Web site and offering ongoing production and maintenance and technical support.

“We were looking for a technology and business partner that would provide us with everything for us to do e-business quickly,” said Tim Minnehan, Green Valley Pecan vice president of sales and marketing. “UptimeOne’s one-stop, end-to-end shop did just that, and ultimately it will improve the way we do business over the Internet.”

“Companies today are looking for an e-business provider who understands both technology and marketing behind the Internet,” said Michael Bertrand, UptimeOne founder and chief executive officer. “We allow companies like Green Valley Pecan to focus on their core expertise and leave the technological and e-business strategy to us.”
