Leading reseller Government Technology Services Inc. last month upgraded its Web
ordering site to attract electronic commerce orders, particularly IMPAC credit card orders
of less than $10,000.
The Web site at www.gtsi.com maintains supporting links at the left side throughout and
links to GTSIs government information technology portal on the right side, said
Karla Knickerbocker, Web marketing manager for the Chantilly, Va., company.
The new site hosts a custom Army page with specific contract terms and conditions. GTSI
officials plan to open other so-called sub-Web sites for the Air Force, Defense
Department, Marines, Navy, State Department, and state and local agencies, Knickerbocker
said. The sites will compete with Dell Computer Corp.s year-old Premier Pages.
As on GTSIs previous ordering site, federal users can set up their own accounts
to configure systems, store price quotations, and search for contracts and products.
There are links to government-specific search engines such as the Federal Web Locator,
FedWorld and GovBot. One section links to government year 2000 readiness news and
government-focus trade publications. Also on the portal are a section dedicated to Office
of Personnel Management issues and a federal employee career center.
