EDI is cool again—thanks Forbes!

September 16, 2019

In his Forbes story ARC Advisory Group analyst Steve Banker takes EDI ‘back to the future.’ In his view, EDI, the technology that has been around for decades, is rapidly evolving and has become cool again because more and more companies are engaging in digital transformations.

We have always known EDI is cool and have spent the past two decades empowering manufacturers of all sizes to sell to the largest retailers in the world, through EDI. We’ve also grown over the years to now offer a comprehensive commerce network and have been named a challenger in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Multi-enterprise Supply Chain Business Networks and as a Leader in IDC’s Worldwide Multi-Enterprise Supply Chain Commerce Network (SCCN) MarketScape.

EDI solutions are a key component of our business and a foundational part of agile unified commerce systems that help our customers do business in every direction.

Take, for example, the case of Experience Restaurant Group that has launched a supplier enablement portal using TrueCommerce managed service with EDI as a vital spoke. Or consider the experience of Cathy’s Concepts which used TrueCommerce EDI to maintain a high-volume Drop Ship program. And, take a look at how EDI, when totally reinvented, gives new capabilities to online merchants such as Winning Streak Sports, facilitating their seamless integration with such global marketplaces as Amazon.

We want to thank Forbes for the kudos and validation of our strategy!
