PromoStandards™ Founding Company Essent® Helping Fund 1st PS Development Workshop at PPAI Tech Summit

PromoStandards LogoEssent, a founding company of PromoStandards, is helping fund the first-ever PromoStandards Development Workshop just before the 2017 PPAI Technology Summit.

The workshop is 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 15, at the Hyatt Regency in Austin, Texas. That’s just a few hours before the Tech Summit begins, and less than a mile away.

The workshop is designed to provide promotional products industry IT professionals the information needed to jumpstart PromoStandards integration, or just get started.

PromoStandards is a group of distributors, suppliers, and service providers dedicated to improving supply chain efficiency in the promotional products industry.

The group, including Essent, is defining and writing integration standards -- computer code -- that allow distributors and suppliers to integrate for the real-time, automatic exchange of the information most often needed to move transactions forward.

There are three sessions at the workshop:

  • Getting Started with PromoStandards & The Basic Services: Covers integration for Inventory, Order Stats, and Order Shipment Notification.
  • Product Data and Purchase Orders -- Basic Orders (non-configured data): Covers integration for Product Data, Product Pricing and Configuration, and Purchase Orders.
  • Product Data and Purchase Orders -- Fully Configured Orders: Also covers integration for Product Data, Product Pricing and Configuration, and Purchase Orders.

In addition to the workshop, Essent provides free consultation for getting started and moving ahead with integration projects. Here’s how to make the most of a PromoStandards integration.
