• ECi completes opXML links for Badger Office Supplies

        • Horizon®, Progress®, and VisionTM business systems users can now trade electronically and access full catalogue data

          ECi Software Solutions Ltd (www.ECi.eu) today announced that it has completed a series of opXML links for Badger Office Supplies Ltd, giving users of the Horizon, Progress and Vision business management systems a further choice of trading partners.

          The company says that the latest technology partnership with Badger Office Supplies allows dealers to expand their product offerings to suit their changing needs. By utilising opXML for stock enquiries, purchase orders, purchase order acknowledgments, invoices and credits, dealers can further streamline their order processing routines and take additional costs out of their business.

          As well as the opXML electronic trading element, ECi customers will get access to Badger Office Supplies’ catalogue data, all fully cross-referenced, so they can be confident they are always quoting their customers from the latest price files.

          “ECi did a fantastic job in getting us live with opXML trading and including our data in the AtomicTM Database and we are looking forward to bringing ECi customers on board,” says Ian Brown, Commercial Manager at Badger Office Supplies.

          Paola White, VP Sales and Marketing for ECi, comments, “Electronic trading really is the way forward to simplify the order processing cycle. We already have established XML links with the wholesalers and a number of key EOS distributors but we are seeing a dramatic shift in this area. In just the last few months we have been approached by numerous suppliers all keen to get their products and data in front of our customers. We consulted closely with Badger and we are really pleased that they have decided to implement the whole suite of opXML options. ECi customers represent a huge proportion of the office products dealer market. ECi’s opXML trading and Atomic Data services are an essential combination for suppliers wanting a successful route into that marketplace. From our experience, those distributors who embrace both Atomic Data solutions and opXML trading links are the ones who fully maximise the potential benefits.”
