This successful launch reaffirms the Company’s ecommerce leadership in the B2B market

Montreal, Canada, October 19, 2021 – mdf commerce inc. (TSX:MDF), a leader in SaaS commerce technology solutions, is proud to announce the successful implementation of its k-ecommerce ERP-integrated ecommerce solution for UAP Heavy Vehicle, a division of UAP Inc. This implementation highlights that mdf commerce solutions can meet the ecommerce needs of businesses of all sizes in a wide variety of sectors, helping increase overall efficiency, improve user experience and ultimately aiming at increasing sales and generating operational savings.

UAP is the Canadian leader in automotive and heavy vehicle parts that operates 13 distribution centres, 738 stores, serves over 2,400 affiliated services centres and holds more than a million parts in inventory. Founded in 1926, UAP has over 4,700 employees working across Canada.

The k-ecommerce ERP-integrated ecommerce solution that was implemented for UAP Heavy Vehicle provides its customers with a high-performing webstore designed both for B2B and D2C users.
