ECi Integrates Private Supply Network with Identity Group

Dealers using DDMS® software can offer customizable products via a user-friendly tool

Fort Worth, TX—Tuesday, August 16, 2016  ECi Software Solutions (, a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced the latest integration of its Private Supply Network (PSN) with Identity Group, the single largest U.S. manufacturer of stamps, inks and signs and best known for their brand U.S. Stamp & Sign®. This integration provides a way for independent dealers who use ECi DDMS® software to generate additional revenue by encouraging the end-user to shop, design and place orders through the dealer for customized office products from Identity Group. These products include stamps, daters, embossers, engraved desk and office signs, name badges, banners, posters, lighted signs, business cards and stationery, mailing envelopes, memo pads and notecards. 

"The independent dealer is still the best resource for small and mid-market American businesses, and ordering custom products for their customers used to be a challenge,” said Brad Wolf, President and CEO, Identity Group. “With this DDMS integration, dealers can now offer their customers a simple, user-friendly way to order a wide breadth of custom products and with faster turn times than ever before. Together, Identity Group and ECi are enabling the independent dealer to engage customers on a level playing field and free up time for more business growth.” 

“ECi’s PSN enables the independent dealer to strengthen supply chain capabilities and offer a wider range of products from leading companies like Identity Group,” said Susan Hunt, PSN Product Manager for ECi’s Distribution Division. “This particular integration is exciting because of the potential for growth in customizable markets and will provide a powerful tool to improve productivity and enhance profitability.”
