Terry Town Providing Distributors with Time-Saving Services with OrderTrax® and PromoStandards

We plan to continue to expand our integration offerings, with Essent, to better enable our distributor partners and drive business excellence.”
- Brian Prestgard, Terry Town Information Technology Manager

The supplier Terry Town is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Product Data to save time and make more efficient partnerships.

Essent® implemented the integration for Terry Town via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using the PromoStandards™ protocol. Distributors integrated with Terry Town now can look up complete, accurate, real-time Product Data 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.

"Terry Town strives to provide an unparalleled buying experience that enables its distributor partners to best serve their customers. Integration serves an integral role in that buying experience by providing distributors around-the-clock, immediate access to the information that they and their customers most often want to know so that all parties can be exceptional in business,” Terry Town Information Technology Manager Brian Prestgard said.

Terry Town has made all the endpoints available to distributor partners, except for the Purchase Order. They plan to have the Purchase Order endpoint complete before the end of the year. The endpoints have been created by integrating via the Essent OrderTrax Network and PromoStandards.

"Essent is a leading choice for integration services in the promotional products industry. This became clear to us from our early interactions with Essent, they set a high standard in terms of technology and industry. We plan to continue to expand our integration offerings, with Essent, to better enable our distributor partners and drive business excellence,” Mr. Prestgard said.

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

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.
