Fort Worth, Texas

ECi Software Solutions (, a leader in industry-specific technology solutions, today announced the integration of its e-automate® ERP software with Etactics’ custom invoicing products to provide additional invoice and statement solutions. Etactics, Inc. is a leading business services company committed to providing innovative, Web-based solutions that improve clients’ cash management and customer relationships. Dealers using e-automate version 8.5 or greater can enjoy this robust integration to improve the creation and delivery of invoices and statements. 

“We are extremely enthusiastic about this further alliance with Etactics,” said Laryssa Alexander, President of ECi Software Solutions’ Service Technology Group. “Dealers on e-automate 8.5 and above will have the ability to create custom invoices that incorporate their data and also make it easier for their customers to remit payment.  The invoicing process for dealerships in the services technology industry is complex due to partnerships, contracts and services like MPS, and is coupled with high transaction volumes. Accounting for data on an invoice or statement can be formidable. The tighter integration of e-automate 8.5 with the Etactics products will provide these dealers with custom solutions that can accommodate ever-evolving requirements. Etactics has been a fantastic ally over the years and we are proud to work in concert with them to bring valuable solutions to our mutual customers.” 

“The complexities associated with new services like MPS and MS challenge dealers to deliver a well-formatted invoice that allows their clients to remit payment quickly," said Bill Salm Jr., Vice President of Etactics, Inc. "Our automated invoice solution and the use of ECi's equipment supply network not only allows us to address complex invoice needs, but automate a task that most dealers today still manually address—the printing and mailing of all invoices in-house. We are excited to bring automation to this manual task and save dealers significant operational dollars while improving the process." 

Automation of the invoice delivery process is achieved by employing business rules to deliver the printed document via USPS, fax server, electronic presentment or a mobile device. Using additional calls recently added to ECi's API or ESN, Etactics can query invoice tables within e-automate and automate the delivery of contract, service, sale, and miscellaneous invoice types to the end user.
