"It was almost no time before we were integrated with one of our largest, most important distributor partners. Essent represents the most efficient path to integration in the promotional products industry.” -- John Glucksman, President of Quake City Caps.
Essent® implemented an integration for supplier Quake City Caps® in one day.
Essent and Quake City kicked off the Inventory Availability integration project on a Thursday, and on that Friday the integration was already live with Quake City sharing inventory information with its distributor partner.
Essent implemented the integration via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using PromoStandards. The integration provides distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Quake City inventory information.
Quake City selected the Essent Fast-Track™ service, where a supplier can integrate almost immediately after providing the data that needs to be shared with trading partners. Essent provides the Fast-Track service for Inventory, Order Status, and Advance Ship Notices, and is expanding the service to more endpoints.
"The one-day integration underscores that Essent provides the most efficient path to integration in the promotional products industry,” said Essent Vice President of Research Steve Luisser. "Factors that allow Essent to implement integration quickly include extensive experience in integration projects and a deep understanding of the promotional products industry.”
"It was almost no time before we were integrated with one of our largest, most important distributor partners. We simply provided Essent the inventory information, and the integration went live the next day. Essent represents the most efficient path to integration in the promotional products industry,” says John Glucksman, President of Quake City Caps.
Distributors who ask for and receive credentials from Quake City Caps can look up complete, accurate, real-time Quake City Inventory at any time. It isn’t necessary for distributors to have an OrderTrax subscription to access Quake City’s Cap inventory information.
By integrating via OrderTrax, Quake City Caps is able to connect with many distributors through the single integration rather than create a unique new integration for each distributor. OrderTrax also allows Quake City to integrate with distributors who use different integration standards.
"While not every integration project can be completed in one day, Essent provides the most efficient path to integration in the promotional products industry. The Quake City implementation is the most recent example of that,” Essent Business Development Manager Marco Peña said.
