Fieldhouse® Awarded DECA National’s Exclusive Online Store Contract
1/24/2008

BELLEVUE, WA—Fieldhouse Inc., a leading provider of fundraising and eCommerce services for schools, teams and leagues, camps, churches and non-profits, announced today that it has been awarded a contract to be the exclusive online store provider for the Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA). DECA Inc. (www.deca.org) is a sixty-year old student organization with 200,000 high school and college members in 5,000 schools across the U.S., Canada, Guam, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Germany.

The competitive award process involved companies submitting proposals for this contract, with Fieldhouse being selected. Fieldhouse will build an online store for DECA in which individual chapters can customize and purchase select items with various DECA-approved logos on them. Each order will be shipped directly to the customer.

“We have had many requests from local chapters to be able to purchase smaller quantity items for special events and competitions,” explains Julie Kandik, Director of DECA Images. “The Fieldhouse technology is proven, their pricing is competitive, they have a 100% customer satisfaction policy, and the company already works with many of our local chapters, all of which influenced our decision.”

“Fieldhouse is excited about the opportunity to work with DECA as the organization’s online store provider,” Carl Lombardi, Founder and President of Fieldhouse, said. “We already understand the need for local high school and college DECA chapters to be able to easily customize and order smaller quantity items online, as this is the premise on which Fieldhouse was founded. Our technology is completely scalable – it meets the needs of large national contracts such as this one, while still working well for smaller schools and teams."
