ECI Launches Suppliers Partners Platform

(July 16, 2020) - ECI Software Solutions has launched a new platform to connect suppliers directly with distributors.

The ECI Supplier Partners platform is designed to help OP businesses streamline their supply chain and speed up order lead times for end users. It connects ECI’s suppliers with its collective database of more than 500,000 end users from businesses across the UK and Europe.

For the 250+ distribution partners that use Horizon and Progress, product catalogs can easily be updated with existing offerings, as well as the addition of new lines to coincide with buyers’ habits and seasonal trends.

Paula Newman, Head of Sales, Distribution for Europe at ECI, said: “At a time when e-commerce is becoming even more important to businesses as they add new stock lines and diversify their product offering, this platform provides simpler access to item codes and information.

“By helping our customers increase the efficiency of ordering from manufacturers, it delivers a best-in-class integration for all parties. For suppliers, it offers multiple opportunities for direct exposure to the market, including increased marketing activity via our channels or a presence at ECI-hosted roadshows.” - (OPI)
