Amazon To Use BSA Standards For 3rd Party Ink And Toner Resellers in the US
By Andy Braithwaite.
Amazon has adopted the Business Solutions Association (BSA) ink and toner naming standards for its third-party resellers in the US.
The move has been taken in an effort to improve efficiency for ordering and reduce customer confusion and comes after the BSA Standards Committee suggested the need for the change to Amazon.
“This is a major development for the industry, and it relates the important role that BSA plays in helping shape the future of the business solutions industry,” said BSA EVP Paula Kreuzburg. “We hope that this is just the first in a series of changes that BSA is able to effect with our industry partners.”
April Fabien, Director of E-Commerce Services at SP Richards and co-Chair of the Standards Committee, added: “The BSA Standards Committee is focused on defining standards for the office products industry, including images, videos and descriptions, that enhance the consumer experience. Amazon’s promotion of the ink and toner naming standard is a validation of our efforts.” http://www.opi.net/category/it-eos/amazon-boost-for-bsa-standards
