Elo TouchSystems Introduces New e-Commerce Site www.elotouchexpress.com Provides Customers with B2B Services

Fremont, Calif.-March 16, 2001- Elo TouchSystems, the global leader in touch technology and a unit of Tyco Electronics, today launched its new e-commerce system at www.elotouchexpress.com. The new e-commerce system includes a storefront where visitors can use their credit cards to shop for all their touchmonitor needs on-line, without having to establish an account with Elo. The site also provides existing customers with on-line access to a wide range of information about their account and Elo products. New customers can apply for credit terms and reseller discounts by simply clicking through on-line forms.

To complement this new range of on-line services, Elo has expanded its flagship Web site, www.elotouch.com, with an improved interface, easier navigation and integration with e-commerce services.

www.elotouchexpress.com: B2B Buying and e-Commerce Services
Using www.elotouchexpress.com makes doing e-business with Elo faster and easier than ever before. The site's click-through navigation will streamline service, whether the visitor seeks speedy delivery of a product or fast access to information about an order.

"Elo created our new business-to-business e-commerce site as an on-line shopping center right at our customers' fingertips," says Gayle Schaeffer, worldwide vice president of marketing and customer experience for Elo TouchSystems. "Visitors can select from a comprehensive range of Elo Entuitive CRT and LCD touchmonitors, add them to their 'shopping cart' and pay for them at the 'checkout' in familiar e-commerce fashion. Customers can choose from touchmonitors in a variety of form factors and touch technologies for kiosk, industrial, medical, hospitality and retail applications. Design engineers now have a direct route to the product specs, part numbers and product drawings they require to select the right touch solution for their needs."

Interactive Account Services
Visitors to Elo's e-commerce site can apply on-line for credit terms and reseller discounts. Existing customers can check their account information on-line by logging into Elo's interactive account services, which enable them to:

  • Check an account balance, including credit limit and outstanding invoices.
  • Check order status, including tracking shipments (with a direct hyperlink to carrier).
  • Look up standard part numbers and/or product descriptions.
  • Use on-line forms to request a touchmonitor under Elo's QuickStart Product Demo Evaluation program, a product price quote, or a return authorization number.

"Future phases will add such features as checking inventory and lead time, and warranty and repair status," says Schaeffer.

Leading Industry Web Site Provides Even More Benefits In addition to an easy, efficient interface for on-line purchasing, information retrieval and technical support, visitors to Elo's Web site can now benefit from improved content that includes a new touch technology section, a custom product configurator, on-line product agency certifications, expanded market and application information and more links to partner sites.
