Anglia Components says its customers can now integrate information and functionality offered by Anglia Live into their own Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) environment following the launch of a new API (Application Programming Interface).
The free of charge Anglia API allows customers to access inventory, pricing and availability data in real-time directly from Anglia Live in their own business system, and then place orders directly with Anglia within that system for speed and simplicity.
David Pearson, Technical Director at Anglia, explained, “Anglia Live has always been one of the most complete and transparent ecommerce platforms in the industry. It offers live up to date and comprehensive information not only on pricing and current inventory levels, but also current lead times and long-term availability. Our customers can place and progress orders, at the relevant price-break or their negotiated pricing as appropriate. The launch of Anglia’s API now allows customers to access this information and functionality in real-time from within their own business system and work with us there just as they would on Anglia Live, making the ordering process even simpler.”
Pearson added, “Another important feature of the Anglia API is that customers can, within their ERP, access results from the comprehensive parametric search engine covering all active supplier part numbers and cross-references to millions of manufacturer and industry recognised part numbers.”
