Canon Now Providing Dealer Gateway Cloud-Based Solution for Easier Product Info Access
February 19, 2015 – To help streamline information updates for its independent dealers, Canon U.S.A. reports that it’s now offering Dealer Gateway for Canon. The Dealer Gateway for Canon is a new cloud-based solution that allows dealers using ECi Software Solutions’ e-automate Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, a subscription service, to access and incorporate the latest Canon item information through an integration between the two technologies.
“The Dealer Gateway for Canon helps dealers have the most up-to-date product information in their management systems,” commented Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A.’s Business Imaging Solutions Group. “Canon is committed to investing in new technologies to help increase productivity and save time for its dealers.”
The Dealer Gateway for Canon, created in alliance with ECi Software Solutions, gives dealers the ability to quickly push information updates about Canon’s items into their management systems as soon as new information becomes available. Canon says helps increase accuracy for several business functions, including ordering new products, inventory management, finances and analysis.
Canon was the first manufacturer to form an alliance with ECi’s Service Technology Group, formerly known as Digital Gateway, Inc. (DGI), by offering its dealers the ability to place orders via the PO Processor solution. This latest solution gives dealers the ability to place orders to Canon directly through their own e-automate ERP system, streamlining the ordering process and eliminating the duplicate work required.
The Dealer Gateway for Canon is now available to Canon dealers using e-Automate. To learn more about Canon’s offerings and products, visit Canon U.S.A. here.
