Staples launched a business-to-business e-commerce Web site,, on March 11. The company's goal is to meet corporate demands for supplier consolidation and reduced procurement costs.

Managed by the company's business-to-business division, Staples Advantage, the site also features the offerings of its five recently announced business-to-business segments: print, facility and technology products as well as promotional and interior products.
