PromoStandards is a group of distributors, suppliers, and service providers creating the computer code that lets distributor and supplier computer systems automatically share business information.
PromoStandards is a group of distributors, suppliers, and service providers dedicated to improving supply chain efficiency in the promotional products industry.
The group, including Essent, is defining and writing integration standards -- computer code. The standards allow distributors and suppliers to integrate -- to connect their computer systems.
Once the integration is implemented, the distributor and supplier computer systems can automatically send and receive business information in real-time.
The information that can be shared is the information most often needed to share to move transactions forward. PromoStandards standards will allow companies to share:
- Inventory (Price and Availability)
- Order Status
- Ship Notices
- Product Data
- Purchase Orders
- Product Configuration
- And Invoices
Essent is a standards-setting member of PromoStandards, meaning that Essent helps define and write the code used for integration.
