Sterling Computers Corp., an I.T. products and services supplier to businesses, schools, healthcare organization and government agencies, launched an updated and expanded e-commerce site this week. The website enables customers to browse and buy from Sterling’s products, provides enhanced accessibility, and convenience, the company says.
Sterling sells hardware and offers I.T. asset management including hardware and software installation and upkeep, security and data management services, and mobile app development. The company serves commercial businesses as well as federal, state and local governments and educational institutions.
The new website, SterlingComputers.com, offers access to more than 1 million products from more than 1,800 manufacturers.
“Our mission is to make it easier for our customers to access the hardware, software and services solutions they require,” says Tim McCabe, vice president of sales. The new site will “revitalize product awareness and procurement. For us, this is the next step to easier I.T.,” he says.
The upgraded e-commerce site will support purchasing from its federal government contracts and open market (non-contract) requests for quotes. Authorized customers can purchase directly from contracting vehicles such as SEWP V (a U.S. government purchasing contract managed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration), Netcents-2 (a U.S. Air Force technology procurement system), and CIO-CS (purchasing contracts administered by the National Institutes of Health’s I.T. Acquisition Center) using conventional purchase orders or agency procurement cards.
The site lets customers from various industries submit an online to requests for quotes on one or multiple products. In addition to federal government agencies, SterlingComputers.com caters to state and local government agencies, schools and healthcare organizations. The e-commerce site displays a video detailing how it worked with the Troup County School System near Atlanta to procure 1,900 desktop and laptop computers for 1,300 schools within four weeks.
SterlingComputers.com also features branded “showcases,” or sections where customers can shop among products from a particular brand of computers or related technology like network servers. It includes showcases branded for Dell EMC, Hewlett-Packard, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, IBM and Oracle.
Sterling also maintains an online network of some 12,000 certified technicians to work on client projects through its online service portal.
