Premier punchout allows dealers to win large accounts
eCommerce Industries, Inc. (ECi), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced the integration of eProcurement with their premier e-commerce solution, ECinteractive. This integration creates another level of service for end consumers. Previously, eProcurement had been available to ECi customers through Dealer Station and D-Force2. eProcurement has also undergone significant development and is now even easier to use and provides more functionality than before.
“The real value in a product like eProcurement is the ability for all dealers at all levels to compete and win the businesses of large national accounts or any business that requires interfacing with procurement software,” adds Stacy Heemsbergen, Vice President of ECi DDMS. “eProcurement is affordable and easy to set up and I am excited to see our dealers embrace this new technology.”
Initially, only large entities such as government agencies, universities and Fortune 500 companies used procurement integration. But this technology is becoming more prevalent in mid-size businesses. It allows these independently owned businesses to level the playing field and offer full service and integration to their client base. In addition to allowing the acquisition of larger accounts, ECi’s eProcurement allows dealers to deploy electronic purchasing catalogs across their organizations and automate purchase order receipt and fulfillment functions. eProcurement is also simple to implement and integrates seamlessly with ECinteractive to provide an easy-to-use tool that reduces the processes and time required for purchasing and order fulfillment.
“We are so excited about this development,” says Becky Manion, Senior Product Manager for ECi ECinteractive. “eProcurement is a great tool our dealers can take to market that raises their customer experience from using just a website to using an integrated solution. eProcurement integrated with ECinteractive creates an affordable option for our dealers so they can be competitive in winning large accounts.”
