Well, tell 'em!! :-)   If they are anything like an ex-employer of mine,
the Marketing or Sales department has to be literally hit over the head
with feedback (constructive!) before they will expend re$ource$ to get
something done. If they have standard catalog products, they could be
convinced to put them online, that is if they've not already begun planning
to do that. If they concentrate more on high-volume OEM sales, then it may
fall on deaf ears. Can't hurt to try though.
