ECI Enhances Haworth Integration for TeamDesign Software

Upgraded integration will offer direct purchasing to boost productivity for office furniture dealers

ECI Software Solutions, a leader in cloud-based business management solutions, today announced significant enhancements to its existing Private Supply Network (PSN) integration with Haworth for its TeamDesign® cloud-based software. The updated integration will allow TeamDesign users to purchase from Haworth—one of the leading office furniture manufacturers—directly through a single platform, significantly streamlining time-intensive, manual order processes and boosting productivity.

TeamDesign is a purpose-built software solution specific to the contract furniture industry. The fully integrated project management system interfaces with every major electronic specifying package to ensure more accurate orders. The software’s features support furniture dealers in virtually every facet of their business—from accounting and inventory, to project management and installation, and everything in between—and its cloud capabilities allow users the ability to conveniently access those features from anywhere, at any time.

ECI created an integration between TeamDesign and Haworth in 2015 with the goal of connecting office furniture dealers with the manufacturer through a unified, easy-to-use platform. With the enhancements unveiled today, TeamDesign users will be able to validate orders through that same platform with detailed specification, as well as retrieve lists of business partners, price agreements and dealer salespersons prior to sending a final purchase order. Once the purchase order is finalized in TeamDesign, the updated information—including acknowledgement number(s) and shipping dates—is automatically sent back from Haworth.

“As a platform for vendor communication, the ECI PSN enables dealers to strengthen their relationships with leading contract furniture manufacturers like Haworth,” said Brian Bowerfind, ECI Distribution Division President. “Updating the Haworth integration reinforces our organizations’ commitment to software development in the furniture industry and provides our mutual customers with a powerful tool that improves productivity.”

This is one of several new integrations ECI has planned to expand its PSN and connect dealers with premiere furniture manufacturers to support their business development and sales. To learn more, visit eciteamdesign.com.
