PRESS RELEASE. IT4profit Enables Trading Partners to Automate Product Catalog Information Exchange.

IT4profit Ltd., a distribution channels solutions provider, has successfully implemented RosettaNet’s Partner Interface Process® (PIP®) 2A1® Distribute Product Catalogue Information, between the trading supply-chain partners, Intel and ASBIS, and tied in with their back-end systems.

The purpose of the PIP 2A1 implementation is to automate the push of product catalog information from Intel, an manufacturer, to ASBIS, a distributor, and to move from the manual (BDE) price list to automatic price list exchange.
The exchange of multiple transactions lowers costs by reducing keystrokes, errors, and the effort to publish and maintain product sales information and enables ASBIS to effectively manage the procurement of items from Intel.

“We have to be a forward thinking company,” said Sergey Kostevich, President of ASBIS. “Business today is becoming more complex and more dynamic. We must have visibility and velocity in our transactions with suppliers and customers.”

Before deploying PIP 2A1, IT4profit Ltd. enabled ASBIS to implement various PIPs from RosettaNet’s Order Management cluster. Previously, the collaboration between Intel and ASBIS required a multilevel manual procurement process. This B2B integration streamlined order management processes between the trading partners and delivered value to ASBIS’ customers through reduced response time.  

Like many other companies, ASBIS did not have the internal expertise to support the RosettaNet PIP implementations with Intel. IT4profit assisted ASBIS to become the first Intel distributor in Europe, the second worldwide, to become RosettaNet compliant by providing the technology platform and technical support.
