ScanSource Offers Custom Ordering Interfaces for VARs

Value-added distributor ScanSource is rolling out All-Access ScanSource, a program that includes a series of electronic interface opportunities that help enhance communications and integration between ScanSource and its reseller partners.

Through this program, resellers have access to ScanSource’s XML Application Programming Interface (API) that streamline the requisition-through-deployment process, to create customized solutions that meet reseller’s specific supply-chain requirements. The APIs open up channels of access for real-time data integration, such as price and availability, the ability to create an order and access to order status.

“We are always looking for ways to help our customers be more efficient and responsive to their end-user customers,” said Paul Constantine, president of ScanSource POS and Barcode for the U.S. and Canada. “By delivering new and enhanced e-business tools, resellers can more quickly connect with ScanSource to find the ordering and product information necessary to grow their business.”

The APIs are the first in a series of electronic interface tools ScanSource will be introducing in order to streamline processes, the company said.

“Removing time and effort from the sales and ordering process is important for resellers that need real-time information, right not,” said Tony Sorrentino, president at ScanSource Security. “Our leading-edge tools provide an efficiency and flexibility that resellers are looking for.”
