PBSeasy Data: Reliable, consistent and current product information is the fundamental basis for a functioning e-commerce. With PBSeasy® DATA manufacturers obtain a high-tech approved solution in order to commercially provide high-quality customer and format-customized product information in mere seconds and at any time. This speeds up processes and maximizes the data quality.
PBSeasy Marketplace: The B2B marketplace PBSeasy® is the basis for the direct distribution of our supplier’s comprehensive product information. Retailers receive upon request, permanent access to a supplier’s relevant product data, including customer-specific prices and product availability, in real time. This efficient approach provides greater transparency and optimizes the ordering process for both sides, saving time and resources. As an established e-marketplace PBSeasy® provides a level of trust for the buyer as it is dealing exclusively with suppliers who are members.
The use of PBSeasy® EDI guarantees the electronic data exchange of business data such as orders, order confirmations, advanced shipping notifications and invoices with all business partners within and outside of the paper, office supplies and stationery industry using common as well as individual formats. Different enterprise resource planning systems of business partners can be integrated to enable a fully automated business data exchange.
PBSeasy Mobile: Present your company and your products in a dynamic, progressive and contemporary light, by using the modern tablet solution PBSeasy® Mobile. As a sales tool, the iPad provides convenience and flexibility in showing off your products in an effective and efficient way. With PBSeasy® Mobile you have instant access to your product content, such as high resolution images, sales documents (i.e. PDF catalogs), and current prices. Immediate availability of customer individual information such as special offers and an overview of past transactions are a given. The visual presentation of your product range as well as the accurate recording and forwarding of orders in real time will insure improved productivity by being able to focus on your customers rather than searching for information. Upon request, PBS Network can modify the app to your individual requirements.
