But, you’re handling your EDI requirements in house, using a myriad of on-premise EDI solutions – with each division using a different solution. As the group expands, so too does the requirements for EDI, however, your older, unsupported solutions become unreliable and an increasing level of in-house IT resource is required to maintain them.

Plus, the transition from numerous on-premise EDI solutions to TrueCommerce’s fully managed EDI service has provided your businesses with a stable, scalable platform for future growth, without the risk of IT purchases, maintenance costs and upgrade issues.

„With companies such as Sainsbury’s amongst its client base we felt confident that TrueCommerce had the knowledge and expertise to on-board a company of our size and stature and were sensitive to our apprehension in switching providers.“
