Special Price on XML Integration

We are pleased to offer special pricing on XML Vendor Integration. XML integration allows the sending and receiving of documents from "system to system". This means that these documents do not need to be opened or keyed into either you or your vendor's systems. Below is a list of all the documents supported; however, some vendors may not be utilizing all documents. XML integration is normally priced at $500 per vendor. For a limited time, we are offering a flat fee of $500 for ALL vendors with current XML integration. (This offer does not include e-commerce punchouts or vendors who become integrated in the future.)

XML Purchase Order/Release- The PO or Release is transmitted from your e-Quantum system directly into your Vendor's production system. This reduces the need for the PO to be opened and entered. It saves time and eliminates the possibility of keystroke errors.
XML Order Acknowledgement- This is sent from the vendor's system to your e-Quantum system. This document lets you know that the vendor's server has successfully received the electronic order.
XML Shipping Notification- This is sent from the vendor's system to your e-Quantum system. This document updates your e-Quantum PO or Release (in some cases) with the ship date and tracking number.
XML Vendor Invoice- This is sent from the vendor's system to your e-Quantum system. This vendor invoice is automatically imported and expensed against the original PO and the vendor invoice is created in AP.

We currently have (8) vendors who have already completed the programming on their side to achieve XML interoperability with your e-Quantum system: United Stationers Supply, SP Richards, CE Printed Products, Colorcentric, Hodgins Engraving, Printegra, Acculink, Wright Business
