The addition of industry-leading digital catalog and assortment planning technology from Elastic illustrates how Scott Sports is taking a major step to strengthen their growing commitment to sustainable business practices by reducing and eliminating printed B2B sales materials. The rollout is consistent with the company’s Re-Source by Scott, a key initiative designed to promote corporate responsibility while focusing on three key pillars: people, product and planet.

“We’ve had our eye on Elastic for a long time now and have seen the dramatic impact their technology has made on transforming wholesale merchandising across many industries, including the market segments we serve. With the shift toward more virtual B2B sales in the current environment, and with the greater sustainability provided by eliminating printed product catalogs, we’ve found the ideal partner with Elastic.
