- Automated procurement: Datto Commerce improves profitability with an intelligent platform that works out where to procure products based on price, availability, and additional configurable preferences. When a sale goes through, Datto Commerce organizes and sends supplier POs automatically. The platform even considers shipping costs and can split an order between suppliers if it increases profit. Automating the procurement process with Datto Commerce improves transactional reliability—which results in less rework.

“Datto Commerce is so automated you can really do more with less when it comes to the resources it takes to get quotes out, to procure equipment, and communicate with my vendors,” said Brian Weiss, CEO at ITECH Solutions. “It gave me the ability to quote more without having to increase my sales force. The digital acceptance has helped speed up the approval and selling process for ITECH Solutions, and automating the procurement process has improved the accuracy of transactions.”
In the past, entering product data was a manual process for Weiss’s team, and information went out of date quickly. Datto Commerce’s data feeds into their vendors helps ensure accurate pricing and inventory data, cutting down on rework “by at least tenfold” to improve operational efficiencies significantly.
