This article walks you through how to integrate your Tech Data account with your Zomentum account. The integration will allow you to retrieve real-time pricing and availability when adding a product to a document, removing the need to manage your products in two places.
Note: Tech Data Integration is currently available for partners in the North American region (USA & Canada) & in the UK. The integration for other regions is currently work-in-progress.
To integrate Tech Data with Zomentum you will need access credentials to Tech Data's XML Online Check Service. These are not the same credentials that you use to log into Tech Data. To request access, you’ll need to contact the Tech Data office.

Setting up Integration:
Navigate to Settings > Integrations tab
Click on TechData under the distributors section
A right-side drawer will appear where you will be asked to enter credentials.
Please enter the 'region' (the USA, Canada or UK). For USA/Canada regions, please enter the Login ID and Password. For UK customers, please enter the customer number and Authorization code provided by TechData.
Hit ‘Save’ and you will be connected.
Using the integration:
Once you are connected, head over to the Quote Block of your document. Search from ‘Etilize’ the products and services you would like to add to your quote. The query will return with specific product information based on the search along with the real-time pricing & availability along with the product details.
To search for products in Etilize:
Drag and drop a quote block in a document
Click on ‘Add Product’
Select ‘Etilize’ from the Dropdown
Search for the product. The results will populate with the real-time pricing along with the stock levels from the integrated distributors
Before adding the product to the quote block, you can set competitive pricing and also modify any product details, if required.
Note: Users will be unable to query the Distributor pricing directly from the ‘Product’ Module (Etilize Option) as the integration is designed to facilitate the MSPs’ with real-time pricing in the event of quoting the end-user.
