Reminder: Readysell-Office Brands Integration Update

Reminder: Readysell-Office Brands Integration Update

It has come to our attention that many of our customers are unaware of the following features announced last year. As such, we are re-sending this announcement to refresh you on some of the capability of your Readysell-Office Brands Integration.

Overriding Office Brands Pricing on WebSphere

Not too long ago we sent out a poll requesting feedback on how we should handle uploading of pricing data to WebSphere. 85% of respondents agreed that the “Custom Price Level” method would best suit their needs. Based on this feedback we have been busy developing and testing a new version of RObI.

Today we are pleased to announce that we are ready to begin rolling out this update to any interested Readysell customer. The key features of this integration are:

    • Ability to override the list price of any WebSphere product (catalogue or store) by entering a price into a pre-defined level

Please note, however, once a price override is created you will be taking “ownership” of the pricing for that product. For the immediate future you will not be able to revert back to WebSphere pricing. We will be working with Office Brands over the coming months to make this a possibility, however, please take this into consideration when evaluating if you would like to use this new feature.

Additionally, you will not be able to define bulk pricing for catalogue products – any bulk pricing defined by Office Brands will be lost if you override the pricing.

If you are interested in this new feature, please send an email to and we will contact you to discuss implementation.

Uploading Prices with Quantity Breaks

Separate to the override feature detailed above, all members are now able to upload bulk pricing for store products only. This new feature is in place effective immediately.

To start using this feature, simply set up your web products as usual and use the “Qty Break” field and your regular pricing levels to define your bulk pricing.

Updated Documentation

In addition to the inclusion of the above features, our Readysell-Office Brands Integration User Guide has been updated to include more information about integrating your Readysell system with WebSphere. The updated documentation can be found at the Downloads sections of our web site.
