ALightPromos now can receive complete, accurate, real-time Order Shipment Notifications at any time 24-7-365.

ALightPromos previously made Inventory and Order Status available to distributor partners by integrating via the Essent OrderTrax Network and PromoStandards.

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.


"By automatically and electronically providing information on inventory, order status, and shipping, we are also automatically providing information that our customers most often want to know. We save the time we used to spend on phone calls and emails providing this information, and our buyers to have the information at their fingertips,” ALightPromos Manager of Information Systems Frank Foller said.

ALightPromos 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 Shipment Notification, Order Status and Inventory are: Product Data, Media Content, Invoices, Purchase Orders, and Product Pricing & Configuration.
