Pittsburgh eBusiness Firm Cited by Inc. Magazine

January 12, 2001

Elliance, a strategic eBusiness technology and Internet solutions firm, developed an eCommerce site for Todays Office, www.officebydesign.com, that established it as one of Inc. Magazine’s “Best of the Web Online Office Furniture Stores”.

Inc. Magazine commissioned a panel of 14 CEOs to evaluate seven Web sites including www.officebydesign.com, that specialize in online sales of office furniture. The panelists judged the sites by value, selection and online customer shopping experience.

Today’s Office was evaluated as one of the highest ratings receiving an overall A- for the user experience. The panelists graded the sites on navigation, inventory, ordering, customer service, reliability and value. According to one CEO, the Todays Office site is "stylish and colorful with clear links. The shopping cart was easy to use. When I clicked on 'continue shopping,' it took me to the subsection I'd been browsing before -- a nice touch."

Elliance is also working on a “Move Manager” tool for the Todays Office site which will help customers schedule an office move and will send them E-mail reminders corresponding with each step of their move to provide a seamless transition.

Pittsburgh-based Elliance is known as a leader in eCommerce development, eMarketing and search engine optimization. Elliance has partnered with clients throughout the country such as, Reader's Digest, Carnegie Mellon, Mellon/Dryfus, STERIS, Zinsser and WaterPik.
