GSSI and Boundless Network Strike Joint Marketing Agreement

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Aliso Viejo, California and Austin, Texas -- Global Sourcing Solutions, Inc. (GSSI), a leading international sales, sourcing and logistics company, with a focus on printing, packaging and premium promotional products and Boundless Network, a technology-enabled branded merchandise distributor, today announced a joint sales and marketing agreement. Under the terms of the partnership, both companies will work together to promote the sale of branded merchandise to clients by leveraging Boundless Network’s technology platform and client relationships to promote GSSI’s printing, promotional, as well as international supply chain management and logistics services.

“Out of a industry with thousands of independent distributors, Boundless Network is one of the few that has brought proprietary technology to bear that streamlines client’s processes, reducing costs and strengthens their brand,” said GSSI’s CEO, James Letzel. “In addition, they are at the forefront of change in a lucrative industry that has seen consistent year over year growth.”
Boundless Network’s technology platform allows clients to manage their total branded merchandise needs from one simple, customized Web-based portal-with no cost to their clients organizations. In addition, Boundless Network offers both Group Buy and online product catalogs that help companies maintain brand and cost control while eliminating the overhead and administration associated with centralized purchasing. On the other hand, GSSI provides managed services and design to delivery solutions for global product sourcing, logistics and distribution. The company has a comprehensive focus on their clients print, packaging and premium products as well as consultative services. GSSI’s supply chain expertise allows them to streamline their client’s processes through a unique business model that offers extensive hands-on account services, matched with a global sourcing network managed by their own local in-country management personnel (ICM Network).

According to the Advertising Specialty Institute’s (ASI) annual research, industry revenues reached $19.6 billion in 2007, up 5.4 percent from 2006 and a new record. In addition, spending on advertising specialties or promotional products—items and incentives branded with a company logo or marketing message—was 83 percent greater than radio advertising, 73 percent greater than Internet display ads and nearly five times larger than outdoor advertising for the same period. Industry increases also outpaced the 2.2 percent growth rate for the United States GDP.
