Headwear supplier, Outdoor Cap Company, Inc. is now offering distributors real-time, around-the-clock visibility to Order Status to save time and make more efficient partnerships.

Essent® implemented the integration for Outdoor Cap via the Essent OrderTrax® Network using PromoStandards. Distributors integrated with Outdoor Cap now can look up complete, accurate, real-time Order Status at any time.

The advantage of integration is that the information needed to move transactions forward can be shared automatically and in real-time, rather than slowly and manually through countless calls and emails.

“Order Status is among the information that customers most routinely want to know. Integrating Order Status improves customer service by providing instant answers to common questions, and Outdoor Cap becomes more efficient because now we have more time to focus on the orders themselves,” Outdoor Cap Product Experience Manager, Mark Stein said.

Outdoor Cap is actively seeking to share the time-saving service with more distributors, who can contact Essent to get started.

Promotional products companies used OrderTrax to exchange business information with trading partners more than 5 million times in 2019. OrderTrax hosts an industry leading 1,400+ trading partner integrations.

Inventory, Order Status, Order Shipment Notification, Product Data, Media Content, Invoices, Purchase Orders, and Product Pricing & Configuration can be shared via OrderTrax using PromoStandards.
