In response to growing customer demand for more online products and services, XSAg.com(TM) is announcing the launch of the http://www.xsag.com parts exchange.

The site will feature the unique XSpert Shopper(TM) cross-reference capability allowing users to choose among all available brands.

XSAg.com, the leading neutral online exchange of agricultural inputs, is expanding its services beyond crop protection chemicals and seeds to include equipment parts to better serve users in the agriculture community. The exchange differentiates itself by offering users a neutral trading floor, no listing fees, and the cross-reference functionality of XSpert Shopper. "XSAg.com serves farmers, dealers, distributors, and manufacturers," says Ed Sechrest, director of parts and equipment for XS, Inc. "The introduction of the online parts exchange provides buyers the best selection of available parts and sellers an expanded market geography -- particularly small dealers and distributors who want to utilize e-commerce but don't have the capability of maintaining their own site."

Initially, registered users will be able to access a database of more than 3,000 equipment parts, with more being added every day, from manufacturers and suppliers such as Temco, Hoober Incorporated, Texas Battery, Adams-Herschel, Murray Equipment and Sotera. Part categories currently include: Basic Farm Supplies (e.g. fencing materials, pipe), Agricultural Transfer Systems (e.g. chemical pumps, tanks), Engine Parts, Planter Parts, Tillage Parts and Combine Parts.

"The online equipment parts exchange was developed because our customers and the industry wanted it," Sechrest said. "Our sales representatives report feedback almost daily from XSAg members who ask for such an exchange." Buyers can search for a specific part by product line, brand, or part number. Users interested in selling equipment parts will expand their market reach via XSAg.com's 40,000 registered users, a figure increasing every day.

"The parts exchange component of XSAg.com will assist all segments of the industry in managing their business," said XS, Inc. founder and CEO Fulton Breen.

The parts exchange feature is the latest of what will be expanded products and services available through XSAg.com. XSAg.com is a neutral online exchange for chemical, seed, equipment parts, and other agricultural inputs that brings buyers and sellers together, providing a secure, seamless e-commerce experience. XS, Inc., parent company of XSAg.com, is headquartered in Raleigh, N.C. For additional information, visit http://www.xsag.com or call (919) 327-9500.
