Ingram Micro’s collection of APIs is our new eCommerce solution that uses cutting-edge technology allowing business processes and system integration with our partners. These APIs deliver cost reduction and process improvement of day-to-day business activity.
The APIs allow seamless integration of the order process from the customer to Ingram Micro. Customers can empower their purchasing team to have instant access to Ingram Micro’s inventory and can also be used to provide a similar ‘virtual warehouse’ scenario to an end-user website. Data and process flows can be incorporated into a customer’s financial and ordering system, desktop applications and more.
APIs are a real-time system, which means that transactions are processed within seconds and provide accurate data directly from Ingram Micro’s system. Our customers can use the power of the APIs to deliver fast and accurate data internally to their purchasing team and their end-customers. High quality, high accuracy and high-speed data allow business decisions to be made with confidence.
We invite you and your IT organization to visit, explore and plan to leverage our new solutions offering.
