"Integrating with the Essent OrderTrax Network is quick, cost-effective, and comprehensive. The implementations are on time and on budget."

Supplier Newell Custom Writing Instruments is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Product Pricing & Configuration, its seventh integration endpoint, to save time and make more efficient partnerships.

Information moves faster and automatically, improving efficiency for us and the buying experience for our distributor partners and the end customer, ” Newell Custom Writing Instruments Customer Service Manager Charity Musick said.

"Integrating with the Essent OrderTrax Network is quick, cost-effective, and comprehensive. The implementations are on time and on budget. Essent implements, maintains, and supports the integration. All we have to do is invite our trading partners to connect to make a better, more efficient partnership,” Musick said.
