Distributor AST Marketing Group (PPAI 627183), based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has announced that its AST E-Commerce division has launched a proprietary “e-commerce merchandise technology” to other distributors in the marketplace.

“We are ecstatic with launching this new revenue channel as we feel it will take us to the next level both regionally and nationally,” says President and Owner Carey Guglielmo. “Our proprietary e-commerce and supply chain model will allow the smaller distributor an opportunity to leverage resources and capitalize on today and tomorrow’s technology standards.”

AST is targeting the service toward small- to medium-sized distributors that don’t have the resources or time to develop it themselves. The program launched this week with its first client, Zehnder Communications in New Orleans.
