ECi to Integrate FusionPlus Data into Horizon and Progress
ECi Software Solutions is to integrate FusionPlus Data into its Horizon and Progress platforms, giving users access to an increased pool of supplier catalogue and enriched product data to utilise in their business management and associated HorizonWeb and EasyOrder e-commerce solutions.
This latest integration means dealers have the ability to populate their ECi systems with highly enhanced and cross-referenced product data, comparable with online companies who are becoming increasingly prominent in the UK office supplies sector.
Nick Gradwell, division president at ECi Europe said: “The market has been crying out for us to integrate FusionPlus Data given that their rich data content will help our dealers better serve their own customers.
“Nowadays, end-users expect ready access to detailed product information, including key attributes, to assist them to make their final buying decision. Now ECi customers will be able to provide that information via their ECi webshop, through FusionPlus Data and FusionPlus-attributed supplier e-catalogues. Beyond these benefits, this also demonstrates our continued plans to work more openly with and increase our strategic relationships in order that we can serve our customers more effectively than we’ve ever been able to.”
Steve Bilton, MD, FusionPlus Data, added: "The integration with ECi’s Horizon and Progress platforms is great news for the dealer community and we're very much looking forward to working more closely with ECi over the years to come.
“I'm particularly pleased for our 'selling catalogue' and 'brand owner' partners, current and future, as this move further increases the reach for their e-catalogues and rich content, including some of the largest dealers in the UK and Ireland and their 1000's of customers – basically, everybody wins!"
