Fort Worth, TX

Digital Gateway, Inc., a subsidiary of ECi Software Solutions, a leader in industry-specific technology solutions, today announced that it will integrate its market leading e-automate® ERP software with Etactics to provide additional invoice and statement solutions to Digital Gateway’s 1,400+ e- customers. Etactics, Inc. is a leading business services company committed to providing innovative, Web-based solutions that improve clients’ cash management and customer relationships. This new relationship between Digital Gateway and Etactics will provide dealers with an additional solution when creating and delivering invoices and statements. Dealers will have the option of providing Etactics with invoice data that will allow them to re-engineer and deliver invoices or statements to their end users in an automated manner. 

“We are excited about this strategic alliance with Etactics,” said Laryssa Alexander, President of ECi Software Solutions’ Service Technology Division. “Our customers will have the benefit of creating custom invoices that incorporate their data and employ a format that makes it easy for the end user to remit payment. Our industry has complex agreements with high transaction volumes. Accounting for all of the transactional data an end user requires on an invoice or statement can be a challenge. DGI’s integration of e-automate with the Etactics products will provide the dealer community with custom invoice or statement solutions that best address these ever-changing requirements.” 

Through this integration, e-automate dealers will also be given the opportunity to automate the invoice delivery process. After re-engineering the invoice or statement, business rules will be employed to automate the delivery of the printed document using one of their four delivery methods—USPS, fax server, electronic presentment or a mobile device. Getting a well-formatted invoice in the hands of the end user quickly will have a positive impact on managing aging receivables and allow dealers to better manage cash. 

“We realize the importance of helping preserve the ERP investments of dealers by providing our complementary invoicing solutions to the e-automate dealer base,” said Bill Salm, Jr., Vice President at Etactics. “Our solutions enhance the robust nature of Digital Gateway’s existing ERP portfolio. It’s a resounding message to their dealer community that Digital Gateway continues to source partners that bring greater value to the relationship.”
