Supplier Continental Headwear is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Order Status and Order Shipment Notifications (OSN) to save time and make more efficient partnerships.
Essent® implemented the integration endpoints for Continental Headwear via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using PromoStandards. Distributors integrated with Continental Headwear have 24-7-365 access to Order Status, and receive automatic notice when an order has shipped.v
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 is an extension of Continental Headwear’s commitment to provide all of the tools necessary to give brands the exposure they deserve. By automatically providing customers the information that they most often want to know, distributors and suppliers can focus on producing great products that build end customers’ brands,” Continental Headwear CEO Perry Ng said.
Continental Headwear 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 Content, Invoices, Purchase Orders, and Product Pricing & Configuration.
