elcom, inc., the eProcurement and eMarketplace solutions subsidiary of Elcom International, Inc.

Robert J. Crowell, Elcom International's chairman and CEO said, "We believe that our eMobileLink(TM) wireless platform represents another step in B2B eCommerce as we give our customers access to our eProcurement systems to review and approve orders while traveling using wireless devices.
