Customers can save one-time orders to be used at a later time or save repeat stock orders. Customers can even import large stock orders into Nexpart - giving the customer a detailed advanced order confirmation.

Nexpart uses XML technology to communicate with a distributor's system. A very small, simple, secure XML request is sent to your system, retrieved, and sent to the Nexpart server. We can also send requests in formats other than XML such as comma, tab or pipe delimited, etc. A small amount of hardware may be installed on site at the distributor to secure the transaction, while the Nexpart server itself is located in one of the nation's major web hosting facilities - the same facility used by The New York Times.
The distributor's system needs to be Nexpart-Ready. Additional costs may be payable to WHI or your system provider to integrate-ask your provider for details. If you own a custom system or have rights to access the source code, we can work with a programmer to integrate Nexpart into your system. Contact us for details.
