Infosys Technologies (NASDAQ: INFY) has worked with United Stationers Supply Co., North America's largest broadline wholesale distributor of business products, to implement a centrally-managed electronic catalog system that presents and makes United Stationers' content available to its resellers through a suite of web services.
