TREVOSE, PA – May 25, 2016 – The Advertising Specialty Institute® today announced over 20,000 users from 9,500 distributor companies are experiencing enjoying a faster, more intuitive experience in the latest upgrade to ESP®, which makes everyday activities in the top sales and search engine in the promotional products industry even easier and more efficient.

Top 40 distributors Proforma, HALO, Geiger, InnerWorkings, American Solutions for Business, Kaeser & Blair and Jack Nadel International – representing nearly $1.2 billion in total annual industry sales – are among the major players already enjoying system-wide performance gains in ESP. The ESP rollout will continue until mid-summer, with more and more companies automatically receiving free upgrades to the most powerful version of ESP yet.
