Katun joins ECI’s PO processor platform

Katun® Corporation, one of the world’s leading alternative suppliers to the Office Equipment industry, is pleased that KATUN EMEA is the latest partner to join ECI Software Solution’s growing PO Processor platform - which has seen almost one million orders from its e-automate customers this year alone.

ECI e-automate’s PO Processor, integrates MPS businesses’ purchasing process with their central ERP, automating ordering. Providing users with benefits including automatic price updates, real-time stock availability and the functionality to select preferred vendors to stay ahead of trends.

This all ensures the smooth order and delivery of print products to MPS businesses’ customers - reducing costs and removing time-consuming processes along the way. For each dealer who uses the platform it saves them countless hours of manual labour a year.

Katun, which has a long-held relationship with ECI in North America and through ECI’s acquired companies in Europe, is the latest supplier of print solutions to make its line of toner, printers and components available to ECI customers in EMEA who have the PO Processor integration with e-automate.

“Purchasing no longer has to be a time consuming manual process for dealers,” says Laryssa Alexander, President, Field Service Division at ECI. “We want to enable more customers to automate ordering from their preferred suppliers to increase stock availability, maximise seasonal and micro trends and improve service to their customers. It enables businesses on both sides to focus on growth and that’s why we are seeing more customers taking advantage of our PO Processor platform, not just in EMEA but around the globe.”

Heidi Boller, General Manager of Katun EMEA: “By becoming an ECI PO Processor partner, Katun EMEA takes a further step to support our Dealer customer community. Dealers can have clear sight to Katun’s product availability and costs in real time and make the best possible purchasing decision for their MPS business. This reinforces Katun’s position as a market leader supplying the industry with high quality products, programs and services that support a MPS Dealer’s drive to profit. We are very pleased to partner with ECI in EMEA – it is an integral part of Katun’s ERP Integration strategy”.

Across the globe, there are more than 40 vendors on the PO Processor platform.
