Recognizing that each of our customers is unique, Nexus includes a flexible approach to enabling customers to use their preferred systems and tools. Customers using TruContact UOC, Connectbase, or one of the dozens of systems that offer APIs will benefit from the back-office automation provided by Nexus.
“We are excited to partner with Kinetic in support of their vision to automate wholesale buying for their customers,” said Ben Edmond, founder and CEO of Connectbase. “With our deep, accurate location intelligence and other quoting services delivered through our APIs to Nexus, buyers can now prequalify opportunities, get true address validation, and be able to quote much faster with more accuracy.
