GLENWOOD, MN – March 17, 2020 – American Solutions for Business has integrated their proprietary eCommerce technology (ACES) with FAST Platform, a technology company with a network of 20+ decorators around the country (a list that continues to grow).

“This integration with the FAST Platform provides a distributed, nationwide footprint for decorating,” explains Mike Schmitz, ASB’s Senior Director of eCommerce. “This means faster delivery and lower shipping costs for our customers. Sales associates don’t have to search for, source and validate the quality of the printers, since that is all part of the offering provided by the FAST Platform.”

This integration allows customers to place online orders for branded merchandise in quantities of one or many. Orders are placed on ACES and then directed to the FAST platform which then routes orders to the closest decorator to the end user. Decorating techniques available include embroidery, screen print, DTG and heat press – all with a 5-day production time.

“We are very excited to partner with American Solutions for Business. ASB is a well-respected industry leader full of great people and a visionary leadership team. We look forward to building on our partnership for years to come and providing their sales associates with industry leading technology and service,” says Taj Schaffnit, CEO, FAST.

American Solutions for Business is committed to finding and implementing additional tools and strategies to help streamline business, simplify processes and increase sales.
