"Essent has a demonstrated ability to add significant capabilities to an entire industry." - PSDA Executive Vice President Matt Bruno
Essent, a leading technology solutions provider experienced in working with industrywide organizations for automation and efficiency, has joined the Print Services and Distribution Association and has accepted an invitation to join PSDA’s Technology Committee.
Essent automates custom product sales and integrates trading partner systems, particularly in the promotional products industry where many Essent clients work in both print and promotional products. Essent is also a founding member of PromoStandards, which aims to improve supply chain efficiency in custom product sales.
"PSDA and the PSDA Technology Committee invited Essent based on their prominence in the promotional products industry, especially when it comes to shaping technology for the industry as a whole and creating efficiency among the industry’s members. Essent has a demonstrated ability to add significant capabilities to an entire industry,” PSDA Executive Vice President Matt Bruno said.
"Solving integration for print is a natural fit and extension of solving integration for the promotional products industry." - Essent President & CEO Eric Alessi
Essent is meeting with print industry leaders to better understand the industry’s technology needs and implement solutions.
"Print and promo are sister industries that share customers and very similar workflow. Leaders in both industries are looking for the same thing, which is the ability to conduct custom product sales as efficiently as possible. Solving integration for print is a natural fit and extension of solving integration for the promotional products industry,” Essent President & CEO Eric Alessi said.
As mature, experienced integrators first working with ANSI X12 in 1990 followed by RosettaNet, cXML, and PromoStandards as well as other public and proprietary protocols over the years, Essent has a demonstrated ability to implement digital integration with a wide range of standards, including standards tailored for particular industries.
Essent employs an award-winning integration team and provides the Essent OrderTrax Network, which simplifies digital integration among trading partners. Essent implements, secures, and maintains integration endpoints on behalf of the companies it serves, representing the most efficient path to integration in both the print and promo industries.
OrderTrax is used to integrate Inventory Availability, Order Status, Order Shipment Notification, Product Data, Media Content, Invoices, Purchase Orders, and Product Pricing & Configuration. Common business information is shared automatically, greatly reducing time-consuming manual practices like phone calls and emails.
