Fort Worth, TX

ECi Software Solutions (www.ECiSolutions.com), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced new integrations between its DDMS® and Britannia® business systems and Diversified Computer Supplies (DCS) on the ECi Private Supply Network (PSN).

"The Private Supply Network makes it easy for independent dealers to integrate ECi business system software with that of wholesalers and manufacturers, which spurs improvements in mutual business processes, profitability and market share,” said Tom Kapp, Executive Vice President at ECi. “Integrating DCS with the DDMS and Britannia systems on the ECi PSN provides dealers and consumers access to an extensive selection of imaging supplies that comprise an area of growth in the office supply and imaging equipment markets."

By eliminating the need to enter catalog item information or re-key orders manually, the ECi PSN helps avert costly human errors. DCS has joined dozens of wholesalers and manufacturers who take advantage of ECi’s exclusive PSN technology. In particular, the DCS PSN integration automates catalog item and pricing import, real-time stock and price checks in order entry, online purchase order transmittal and automated acknowledgement of vendor-allocated inventory.

For DCS resellers using ECi DDMS and Britannia business systems, this integration promises a strategic product selection as well as valuable efficiencies.
DCS offers a unique portfolio of copier, fax, printer and multi-function printers, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) brand toner cartridges and brand compatibles. Not only does DCS test products onsite, it also directly manufactures many products from an ISO9001-certified facility. DCS resellers can thus combine OEM and remanufactured products in a single shipment with national next-day delivery. Packing slips can also be customized using the dealer’s logo, address and messaging.

“DCS is excited about our new integration with ECi and its PSN network,” said Diana Hollenshead, Vice President of Sales and Operations at DCS. “As a value-added wholesale distributor, DCS is committed to continued investment in technology that supports the independent dealer channel. This PSN integration will allow us to better serve our existing customer base and more readily communicate our low pricing on our full product catalog. We’ve worked hard to create meaningful efficiencies in the way we do business. A partnership with a company like ECi is a great example.”
