If it isn't you have some people who need to be fired yesterday.
Internet Texoma (in north Texas) is not far from me. They design and host Ecommerce sites for all sorts of mom and pop web businesses.
If your company can't find someone of their quality and pricing to handle distribution - then I will submit outright that there is likely embezzlement going on and you need a top to bottom outside audit right now.
