ECi Software Solutions has announced that version 10.3 of the DDMS® business system has been integrated with alternative office equipment supplier, Katun Corporation, using ECi’s Private Supply Network (PSN).
ECi’s PSN automates the process of exchanging B2B data. The Katun PSN integration in DDMS 10.3 automates item and pricing file import via ECi Content Integration software. It allows sales agents to check Katun's stock availability and pricing in Order Entry in real time and allows purchasing agents to securely transmit purchase orders and receive Katun acknowledgements of allocated inventory.
“Our growing partnership with Katun is part of ECi’s commitment to help independent dealers do business more efficiently and profitably,” said Tom Kapp, ECi Executive Vice President. “In August 2011, we completed a similar integration with ECi OMD, our business system dedicated to office machine dealers. In both cases, the result has been to make it easier to do business with Katun at no additional charge to our mutual customers. The DDMS integration will especially benefit dealers who sell office supplies, or who sell and repair office equipment, or — as is unique to DDMS software — dealers who sell in multiple industries.”
