(November 10, 2014 – WESTFORD, MA) Recently, eZCom Software’s streamlined EDI solution, Lingo™, received the NEECOM (New England Electronic Commerce Users’ Group) EC/EDI Solution of the Year Award for 2014. NEECOM presented the award at their annual Fall Conference to eZCom for the benefits Lingo™ has brought to the electronic retail trading community. Specifically, NEECOM singled out eZCom’s Lingo for innovation in the area of drop ship fulfillment.
“NEECOM created our ‘EC/EDI Solution Award of the Year Award’ to highlight a company that has brought innovation and significant benefits to the larger electronic trading community, specifically those doing business in New England,” stated Ira Keltz, President of NEECOM. “eZCom Software’s award application highlighted the fact that retailers and their manufacturer partners have cited the explosion of ‘drop ship,’ or direct-to-consumer fulfillment, as one of the top challenges facing the community today. eZCom’s EDI-based drop ship fulfillment solution has enabled retailers and their manufacturer partners to compete on a more level plane with e-tailers; extend product offerings without incurring additional costs and risks; offer much more efficient and higher volume direct-to-consumer capabilities; and has overall enhanced supply chain efficiency and provided higher profits. For those reasons, we were thrilled to honor eZCom with our first annual EC/EDI Solution of the Year Award in 2014.”
“We originally created a customized drop ship solution within Lingo to streamline and simplify direct-to-consumer fulfillment for a Fortune-500 department store retailer client and their manufacturer partners,” explained Carol Weidner, CEO of eZCom Software. “We included beneficial features such as custom-branded packing slips, high-volume direct-to-consumer capabilities (Lingo’s Accelerated Document System™ streamlines and speeds packing and shipping with advanced batch processing), and shipping integration with FedEx and UPS. The results have been so successful, we have expanded the drop ship solution to our entire customer base.”
