Supplier Alexander Manufacturing® has chosen Essent® to provide more distributor partners time-saving integration services and a more efficient supply chain.
Essent is working on behalf of Alexander Manufacturing to provide distributors data from Alexander automatically and in real time via the Essent OrderTrax® Network.
Alexander already offers Inventory and Order Status data to integrated distributors. In addition to helping more distributors receive the data, the Alexander Manufacturing Distributor Integration Initiative includes plans to make more types of data available.
Essent provides free Match Making to help connect suppliers and distributors for seamless transactions.
"Distributors who integrate with Alexander will enjoy the most efficient buying experiences possible. And in turn, distributors can provide greater experiences for their buyers. We’re excited to offer integration opportunities that continue to build upon our customer service levels that are already highly rated in the industry,” Bret Slane said.
Essent Business Development Manager Marco Peña is leading the initiative and will work with Alexander Manufacturing partners to move the integration projects forward.
"Instead of having to call or email, distributors who integrate will automatically receive information that they need to move transactions forward. It represents great time savings for distributors and suppliers alike,” Mr. Peña said.
OrderTrax is a mature, proven integration network that securely and accurately processes over 12 Million transactions representing over $3 Billion in commerce annually. Supporting ANSI X12, cXML, ePSA, PromoStandards, and other public and proprietary standards, OrderTrax allows companies to integrate using the standards of their choosing. Instead of implementing and maintaining a costly new integration for each trading partner, companies can integrate once through OrderTrax to become connected to many trading partners.
