"In addition to improving customer service as a result of immediate answers, the integration endpoints allow Sunscope to focus more time and energy on moving orders forward."
-- Sunscope Chief Information Officer Vinay Arora
Supplier Sunscope, the 9th largest supplier in the promotional products industry, now can receive complete, accurate, electronic Purchase Orders ready for immediate processing – in addition to offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to critical business information to save time and make more efficient partnerships.
Essent® most recently implemented the Purchase Orders integration for Sunscope via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using PromoStandards. It allows Sunscope to automatically receive Purchase Orders from their distributor partners electronically so that orders can be processed faster with shorter lead times.
Sunscope previously made the Inventory, Order Status, and Order Shipment Notification endpoints available to distributor partners by integrating via the Essent OrderTrax Network and PromoStandards. These endpoints allow Sunscope to provide distributor partners the information they need automatically and in real-time, rather than slowly and manually through countless calls and emails.
"By integrating Inventory, Order Status, and Order Shipment Notification, Sunscope is automatically providing answers to the questions that buyers ask most frequently. By integrating Purchase Orders, Sunscope is receiving the information we need to process orders efficiently. In addition to improving customer service as a result of immediate answers, the integration endpoints allow Sunscope to focus more time and energy on moving orders forward,” Sunscope Chief Information Officer Vinay Arora said.
Sunscope is actively seeking to share the time-saving services with more distributors, who can contact Essent to get started.
