TAMPA, Fla. (August 30, 2011) – A pet dog is part of the family to 78.2 million Americans while 86.4 million Americans have a cat as part of their family. At least 39 percent of all U.S. households have a pet. That’s a lot of bones to chew. For consumer retailers, this exemplifies the demand in pet supplies. Savtira Corporation, a new provider of B2B Cloud Commerce solutions, in an effort to increase its catalog offerings has partnered with TopDawg Pet Supply, Inc. in order to tap into 15,000+ pet supplies.
“We currently have nearly 13 million items in the Savtira catalog,” said Timothy Roberts, Savtira Corporation CEO. “We are constantly building this inventory base for our clients, so aligning with TopDawg Pet Supply is an ideal, mutually beneficial relationship.”

“It’s truly a win-win situation. Savtira is a liaison for us getting our inventory out to more retailers. Those retailers have the opportunity to generate up to 45 percent profit on our products,” says Jason Santini, CEO of TopDawg Pet Supply, Inc. “We couldn’t be more pleased in our partnership with Savtira. It moves us up to a whole new level in the e-commerce market.”

Like a franchise, TopDawg supplies independent entrepreneurs, pet stores and online retailers the products they need at wholesale rates. With their stock being added to Savtira’s immense catalog, consumers will have an even larger variety when shopping at their favorite online stores. Savtira also has a carrier-class “Entertainment Distribution Network” (EDN), which streams all digital media from the cloud to any device. No download or installation necessary. All data and configuration is stored within the cloud. Should retailers choose to have their eStore built on Savtira’s platform, they will have the opportunity to add to their inventory via the Savtira catalog with both physical goods and digital downloadable goods.
“Pet stores online, small or large, can have their branded eStores built by Savtira on the back-end. By adding our catalog, they are offering their customers more options with the convenience of purchasing both the unbreakable chew-toy, along with a digital download of Cesar Millan’s Dog Whisperer, for example, in one transaction,” explains Roberts. “They can watch their purchased video (stored in the cloud) from their phone at the park or at home on the couch.”
