Multiple Vendor Catalog

Connect with vendor catalogs.

Parts stores and retailers depend on supplier eCatalogs for a vast amount of product information. This feature allows the user to access multiple parts price catalogs from multiple vendors without cluttering the main EBMS inventory catalog. This product information is then easily and quickly accessed from the sales order and work order.

Seamless Interaction with Vendor Catalogs

The vendor supplied parts information can be viewed or selected from within EBMS using the inventory list dialog. This allows the user to select a product, located in a vendor supplied list, directly from the EBMS invoice or quote. Product information can be copied into the EBMS inventory database without retyping descriptions, costs, and other details from the vendor's product list.


Automated Updates

This module facilitates the product update process so that multiple vendor catalogs can be updated on a regular basis. This can be accomplished by automating a copy from the vendor supplied files located on an FTP site. List pricing, unit costs, UPC codes, and other information within EBMS can be updated directly from the vendor catalog.


Common Interface

Vendors distribute their product information in a variety of file formats with a variation in product information. Organizing and viewing this valuable information within a common interface can save a lot of time and frustration.

Less Clutter
