The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) announced the availability of e-commerce information on its Web site. The industry can now access current e-commerce web services standards, and reports and recommendations for the use of e-commerce within the outdoor power equipment industry.
The e-Commerce section of the OPEI Web site has been rebuilt to provide access to information regarding the web services work accomplished during the past 2 years. The web services supported by industry standards accommodate the submission of warranty claims, product registrations, purchase orders, and inventory availability inquiries. Reports and guidelines for use are posted along with the current and earlier versions of the web service standards.
According to the association, this section of the OPEI Web site will be the primary access point for all future web services standards and related e-commerce information as the use of this technology matures. In addition, OPEI says it will serve as the repository for all the latest standards and codes to ensure easy access by manufacturers, distributors, business system developers, and their supporting partners.
All this information can be found at www.opei.org, and then by selecting "OPEI Programs."
