Facilisgroup, a community of promotional products distributors, has added three new members: The Prestigious Mark (UPIC: CORP8780), Network Interstate and Ascentives (UPIC: HYK123).

San Antonio, Texas-based The Prestigious Mark was founded in 1998 and is owned by Amy Swaney. Company President Ben Swaney says, “We want to take Prestigious Mark to the next level and beyond. We are new to Facilis, but from what we have experienced so far, we believe Facilisgroup has the tools, the support and offers the networking potential to help us reach that next level. As owners, we want to surround ourselves with like-minded business owners who have an energy for our industry, and seek ways to improve it.”

Network Interstate is based in Houston and was founded in 1993 by Lily Clark and Brenda Ottesen. “Facilisgroup for us is about providing a competitive advantage,” says Ottesen, president. “The professionalism of the marketing materials and ease of order entry and workflow are just two of the benefits we know will enhance our value proposition.”

Rick Karls purchased Ascentives, headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, in 2000. He says, “Ascentives became a partner believing that the tools and community offered by the Facilisgroup closely mirrored Ascentives core values and our ongoing corporate desire to enhance the services, communication and purchasing experience available to our valued customers.”

Facilis is a management consulting and technology services group providing high-impact marketing programs, buying leverage, best practices consulting, graphics services and a fully integrated infrastructure for web-based business automation to promotional products distributors.
