@UK Announces new punchout link with Blackwell Books.

Feb 27, 2009

Blackwell is the leading specialist and academic bookseller in the UK and has over 55 shops across England, Scotland and Wales. Blackwell’s staff is renowned for their expertise, depth of knowledge and love of books over 125 years after Mr. Blackwell's 'little shop' first opened its door. Blackwell Online was first launched in 1995. Since then it has evolved into a leading website for specialist book sales. From 2002 it has also acted as an electronic catalogue for some 100 UK and overseas institutional customers accessing over 3.5 million books via a punch out service

@UK PLC is delighted to announce that Blackwell Online can now be accessed via our eMarketplace. This gives all our buyers instant, up to date prices, access to the entire range of books supplied by Blackwell that are published by thousands of publishers in the UK and the USA.

Richard Gisborne of Blackwell said

We are looking forward to promoting Blackwell through the @UK eMarketplace. This gives us the opportunity to offer our large range, good value pricing and substantial stock holding to all public sector bodies using @UK PLC. Blackwell has provided many benefits for customers in internet purchasing, and this is a great way of extending our e-commerce capabilities. We can drive down the costs of the customer’s buying process.

Buyers who would wish to establish a commercial arrangement with Blackwell, and discover more about saving cost via an eCommerce solution, should contact Richard Gisborne from the Blackwell Books web site.
