In March, IMARK Group chose Prophet 21 as a “member service provider.” In February, Equity/EDN selected Prophet 21 as their “exclusive technology provider member.”

Prophet 21 will partner with the marketing groups to develop increased efficiencies for their members, said two separate press releases from Prophet 21.

“Currently more than 16 percent of Equity/EDN members use a Prophet 21 solution to run their business,” said Chuck Boyle, president and CEO of Prophet 21. “Prophet 21 views this partnership as an extension of our relationship with those distributors and an opportunity to provide lasting value to all Equity/EDN members.”

Membership of Equity/EDN, Bluffton, N.C., includes more than 1,100 independent electrical distributor members.

IMARK Group, Oxon Hill, Md., is made up of 184 independently owned electrical distributors with a combined $6 billion in annual sales. More than 60 IMARK members currently employ Prophet 21 technology solutions.
