Supplier The Book Company is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Order Status and Inventory to save time and make more efficient partnerships.
"Integration through the OrderTrax Network enhances our primary business, which is serving our valuable distributor partners."
Essent® implemented the integration for The Book Company via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using PromoStandards. Distributors integrated with The Book Company now can look up complete, accurate, real-time Order Status and Inventory 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.
"Integration through the OrderTrax Network enhances our primary business, which is serving our valuable distributor partners. By providing distributors instant access to the types of information they most often want to know, integration allows The Book Company to keep distributors automatically up-to-date while we move orders forward as efficiently as possible,” The Book Company Owner and President Doug Greenhut said.
The Book Company is actively seeking to share the time-saving service with more distributors, who can contact Essent to get started.
Other information types, or endpoints, that can be integrated in addition to Order Status and Inventory are: Order Shipment Notification, Product Data, Media Content, Invoices, Purchase Orders, and Product Pricing & Configuration.
