ECi Announces Integration between DDMS® Software and ComplyRight™ Solutions

ECi Software Solutions (www.ECiSolutions.com), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced a Private Supply Network (PSN) integration between its DDMS® software for office products dealers and the ComplyRight™ compliance line of products focused on the areas of human resources, labor law and tax solutions. Compliance posters and forms have been difficult products to stock because laws are updated and changed frequently, causing materials to quickly become outdated and, therefore, unsellable. For example, certain labor law posters must be conspicuously posted by all employers, but there are more than 120 versions of the posters to meet applicable federal, state and city requirements, with English, Spanish and bilingual versions. There were more than 50 updates to these posters during 2015 alone, meaning the traditional wholesaler and dealer inventory distribution models simply do not work.
