ECi to integrate FusionPlus Data in Horizon and Progress

ECi customers will be able to utilise additional supplier and product data

Cambridge, England—16 March 2017  ECi Software Solutions Ltd (www.ECi.eu) today announced it will be integrating FusionPlus Data into its Horizon® and Progress® platforms, giving users access to an increased pool of supplier catalogue and enriched product data to utilise in their business management and associated HorizonWeb® and EasyOrder™ e-commerce solutions.

This latest integration will mean that dealers will have the ability to populate their ECi systems with highly enhanced and cross-referenced product data, comparable with online companies who are becoming increasingly prominent in the UK Office Supplies sector.

Nick Gradwell, Division President at ECi Europe says “The market has been crying out for us to integrate FusionPlus Data given that their rich data content will help our dealers better serve their own customers. Nowadays, end-users expect ready access to detailed product information, including key attributes, to assist them to make their final buying decision. Now ECi customers will be able to provide that information via their ECi webshop, through FusionPlus Data and FusionPlus-attributed supplier e-catalogues. Beyond these benefits, this also demonstrates our continued plans to work more openly with and increase our strategic relationships in order that we can serve our customers more effectively than we’ve ever been able to.”

Steve Bilton, Managing Director, FusionPlus Data, added, "The integration with ECi’s Horizon and Progress platforms is great news for the dealer community and we're very much looking forward to working more closely with ECi over the years to come. I'm particularly pleased for our 'selling catalogue' and 'brand owner' partners, current and future, as this move further increases the reach for their e-catalogues and rich content, including some of the largest dealers in the UK and Ireland and their 1000's of customers - basically, everybody wins!"
