TRANSACT: High-volume Internet processing
"Transact is a high speed and efficient method of sending a large number of orders very quickly. We can send orders of hundreds of lines to all our shops - and receive acknowledgments - in minutes. Since we implemented the new Pubeasy Transact service, we have been able to go from a state of not knowing when a book will arrive to knowing with pinpoint accuracy the progress of a title in the supply chain. Transact doesn't use proprietary software, so we were able to fully integrate it into our central database system, making it appear transparent to the user."
"The new Transact service provided by PubEasy is just what we have been praying for. It enables us to transmit orders and receive immediate reports electronically. This saves us hours of staff time spent chasing publishers about urgent orders for our Library Customers."
