Supplier Sanford B2B is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Order Status to save time and make more efficient partnerships.
Essent® implemented the integration for Sanford B2B via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using PromoStandards™. Distributors integrated with Sanford B2B now can look up complete, accurate, real-time Order Status at any time.
The advantage of integration is that the information needed to move transactions forward can be shared automatically and in real-time, rather than slowly and manually through countless calls and emails.
"Integration through OrderTrax allows our distributor partners to know where their order stands, 24-7-365, while Sanford B2B spends more time focusing on making powerful statements through powerful brands of writing instruments,” Sanford B2B Customer Service Manager Charity Musick said.
Sanford B2B is actively seeking to share the time-saving service with more distributors, who can contact Essent to get started.
Other information types, or endpoints, that can be integrated in addition to Order Status are: Inventory, Order Shipment Notification, Product Data, Media Content, Invoices, Purchase Orders, and Product Pricing & Configuration.
