Compass Industries Providing Distributors Shipping Information via Essent OrderTrax Integration

"The need-to-know information is increasingly at distributors’ fingertips.”

Supplier Compass Industries is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Order Shipment Notification to save time and make more efficient partnerships.

Essent® implemented the integration for Compass Industries via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using PromoStandards™. Distributors integrated with Compass Industries now can look up complete, accurate, real-time Order Shipment Notification at any time.

Compass Industries already offered distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Order Status via OrderTrax 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.

"Compass Industries continues to grow its integration offerings that make transactions easier than ever for distributors. Distributors now can now know the status of orders and shipments instantaneously without ever having to call or email. For distributors who work with Compass Industries, the need-to-know information is increasingly at distributors’ fingertips,” remarked Michael Levy, President of Compass.

Compass 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 and Order Shipment Notification are: Inventory, Product Data, Media, Invoices, and Product Pricing & Configuration.
