Integrating Tech Data Products

Overview

Tech Data sells hundreds of thousands of products. Of course, it's a challenge getting access to all these products and prices to be able to put them into a quote.

Challenge

Tech Data doesn't provide any type of cloud-searchable product and pricing look-up system that 3rd party apps or websites can use. Which means the 3rd party would typically have to import product and pricing lists daily.

Solution: Product Content Subscription + Real-time Pricing & Availability

QuoteWerks introduced its Product Content Subscription, which removes the need to import Tech Data products into QuoteWerks. Instead, QuoteWerks queries the cloud-based QuoteWerks Product Content server and returns a list of the Tech Data products. Each product includes the Tech Data part number, manufacturer, manufacturer part number, picture,  and customer-friendly marketing description. Once you have access to the list of Tech Data products in QuoteWerks, you can then use the Real-time feature to get real-time prices and warehouse availability for those products. Product Content Subscription vs. Real-time Module Explanation

Important:   We strongly recommend that you do not import Tech Data price files. However, if you'd rather import Tech Data product information, you can do so.
