Connecting to 300 unique distributors through Iceimport

Iceimport by Iceshop

If you want to see stock and prices integrated in your webshop or ERP, Iceimport is a great service. A new milestone is reached: you can connect to 300 distributors in Europe and the US. Real-time.

Frank Heinen, manager technology at Iceshop: “In Western-Europe, we have a great coverage among ICT distributors. In the Benelux countries, we cover 90% of the IT distributors.”
The list of distributors can be found on the Iceshop website. “Within 48 hours, we can have a new distributor connection live, if a reseller asks us to do so.”

Unique for Iceimport by Iceshop is that data is polled real-time or near real-time (up to every 5 mins), depending on the capabilities of the distributor’s API (Application Programming Interface). Further, Iceimport has become extremely stable. The basics of Iceimport were developed in 1999, as part of a webshop solution, but the service is completely redeveloped in the past years as a stand-alone cloud solution.

Frank adds: “For Dutch e-tailer Aces Direct, we have set up 30 new distributor connections within 3 months. We make it very easy for resellers and distributors to connect to each other, by flexibly adapting to their APIs, and by not requiring a distributor to make the programming effort to connect to 3rd party APIs.”
