Cambridge, England— ECi Software Solutions Ltd (www.ECi.eu), a leader in industry-specific business management software and information technology solutions, today announced the implementation of live pricing in the Evolution Web Shop e-commerce software for the Horizon® and Progress® platforms to further streamline the process of updating product/pricing data in front and back-office solutions in a more timely manner.
This latest integration will allow end-customers placing orders via the Evolution Web Shop to be presented with current prices. Dealers will no longer have to wait for nightly pricing files to update their e-commerce solution with data from the core ECi Business Management system.
Nick Gradwell, Division President at ECi Europe, said “We have listened to our customers using Evolution who have been struggling with the nightly uploads of product/pricing data. It has been a delight to work with Paddy and the Evolution team to integrate live pricing into their web platform. Live pricing is not a new concept, it now comes standard with all ECi e-commerce platforms in Europe. This latest development brings an even tighter integration between the two systems and continues to demonstrate ECi and Evolution’s desire to work more closely for the benefit of our mutual customers.”
Patrick Donnelly, Managing Director at Evolution Software Limited, added, "We're delighted to be working with ECi on this important integration which I'm sure will be very well received by our mutual customers. Duplicating pricing in multiple systems is time consuming and difficult to manage. I am confident our customers will appreciate the two organisations coming together to help further streamline their business processes and remove a very acute pain point. I'd like to extend a personal thank you to Nick and the ECi team who have been a pleasure to deal with."
