Storm Duds Raingear Providing Distributors Time-Saving Services with OrderTrax® and PromoStandards

"Storm Duds Raingear is investing in partnerships by making it easy and fast for distributors to get the information they most often want to know."
- Gary Libman, Storm Duds Raingear President & CEO

Supplier Storm Duds Raingear is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Inventory, Order Status, and Order Shipment Notifications to save time and make more efficient partnerships.

Essent® implemented the integration for Storm Duds Raingear via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using the PromoStandards™ protocol. Distributors integrated with Storm Duds Raingear now can look up complete, accurate, real-time Inventory information, Order Status information, and Order Shipment information at any time.

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.

"Storm Duds Raingear is investing in partnerships by making it easy and fast for distributors to get the information they most often want to know. At the same time, Storm Duds Raingear is able to reduce the effort spent on communicating the information so that we can focus more on the colorful imprinted rain gear that we’re known for – all while also now offering even better customer service," Storm Duds Raingear President & CEO Gary Libman said.

Storm Duds Raingear is actively seeking to share the time-saving services with more distributors, who can contact Essent to get started.

"Implementing PromoStandards integration endpoints with the Essent OrderTrax Network was easy. We plan to work with Essent to build our integration initiative further so that we can continue to provide enhanced efficiency for our distributor partners and ourselves alike,” Mr. Libman said.

Inventory, Order Status, Order Shipment Notification, Product Data, Media Content, Invoices, Purchase Orders, Product Pricing & Configuration, and Product Compliance can be shared via OrderTrax using PromoStandards.
