"Sunscope typically holds $20 million in inventory including more than 2,000 different products at any given time. The ability to automatically provide information about inventory of this volume creates a great deal of new efficiency."
Sunscope, the 13th largest supplier in the promotional products industry, is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Inventory Availability to save time and make more efficient partnerships.
Essent® implemented the integration for Sunscope via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using PromoStandards. Distributors integrated with Sunscope now can look up complete, accurate, real-time Inventory Availability 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.
"Manually answering questions about high volumes of inventory is time-consuming, and Sunscope typically holds $20 million in inventory including more than 2,000 different products at any given time. The ability to automatically provide our distributor partners information about inventory of this volume, at any time around the clock, creates a great deal of new efficiency for Sunscope,” Sunscope Chief Information Officer Vinay Arora said.
Sunscope 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 Inventory are: Order Status, Order Shipment Notification, Product Data, Media Content, Invoices, Purchase Orders, and Product Pricing & Configuration.
