FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | March 2018 | Distributor ePromos® is embarking on a company-wide supply chain initiative to integrate with its suppliers and has selected Essent to work on behalf of ePromos to implement the integration.
The ePromos Supplier Integration Initiative directs ePromos suppliers to integrate with ePromos using PromoStandards™. Essent is a Founding Member of PromoStandards and co-authors the standards.
"The product details and order information we use and transmit everyday can be sent accurately and automatically through integration, lowering costs and errors for everyone in the supply chain. We’re excited for our suppliers to be in touch with Essent and see how easy it is to integrate and enjoy the benefits of integration” Steven Stanley, ePromos Director of Technology, said.
Essent Business Development Manager Marco Peña is leading the initiative and will work with ePromos suppliers to move the integration projects forward.
"The promotional products industry is truly embracing trading partner integration, and for good reason: Integration creates a more efficient supply chain and better business for everyone. Once suppliers see the clear path to integration via Essent, they’re excited to see how much it will benefit their companies, and Essent provides the most efficient path to integration in the promotional products industry,” Mr. Peña said.
"We’re looking forward to this technology enhancement and the positive outcomes for our business,” said Steve Paradiso, President of ePromos.
Documents and information that can be integrated include Inventory Availability, Order Status, Order Shipment Notification, Product Data, Media, Pricing and Configuration, Purchase Orders, and Invoices.
Essent provides the Essent OrderTrax® Network, the promotional products industry-standard integration network. OrderTrax allows companies to integrate on standards of their choosing including mature, established standards such as ePSA and ANSI X12 and emerging standards like PromoStandards.
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.
