The online network consists of a wide selection of office products including computer equipment and maintenance repair and operations supplies.


"The strategic relationship between iPlanet and Firmbuy leverages the core strengths of each company," said Lynn Schiller, Firmbuy executive vice president of operations. "Further, it provides clients with the key benefits they need to drive their procurement costs down and increase profitability."


In addition, iPlanet also announced it has updated its iPlanet BuyerExpert software. Company officials said the software now allows international organizations to issue purchase orders in multiple currencies. In its enhanced version, the software paves the way for users to track and compare suppliers.
