Manufacturing Supply Chain Integrations
Today’s manufacturers face more pressure than ever to deliver products quickly to their buyers. Whether you sell to retailers, business users, or consumers, your business’s success depends on your ability to anticipate and respond to demand. But managing an intricate, global supply chain, while also keeping a finger on the pulse of the market can be challenging, especially if you don’t have the right technology.
Supply Chain Solutions for Manufacturers
Many manufacturers still rely on manual processes to move data between disjointed systems. Not only do manual tasks like data entry limit your operational capacity; they also slow down your supply chain and stop you from having the most up-to-date data. When supply chain disruptions occur, that lack of visibility makes it easy to get mired in delays, stockouts, and other issues. While you struggle to get back on track, your competition may be stealing your customers.
TrueCommerce’s unified commerce platform, Foundry, connects your external demand and supply chains directly to your ERP and other internal systems.

TrueCommerce Supply Chain Solutions for Manufacturing Brands
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
Automate the exchange of compliant purchase order acknowledgements, advance ship notices, and other order documents with your retail and drop ship partners. Integrated EDI makes it easy to communicate with suppliers and 3PLs for fast procurement and fulfillment.
Take advantage of some of the world’s biggest online marketplaces, with integrations for Amazon, Walmart Marketplace, Target+, Facebook Marketplace, and more than 100+ popular sites across industries. Access all your listings from a single seller portal for easy management.
Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)
Stockouts and long lead times can damage your trading partner relationships. Vendor managed inventory combines data sharing, your partnership agreements, and advanced forecasting to optimize replenishment orders and improve on-shelf availability.
Suppliers use a variety of communication methods, ranging from EDI to email. Our supplier enablement platform accepts and transforms XML, CSV, PDFs, and other file formats to deliver data right to your ERP. Fully managed onboarding helps new suppliers get started in days.
Scan-Based Trading (SBT)
SBT is a collaborative replenishment that goes even further than VMI. By collecting sales data from your customers’ POS systems, SBT helps you track product movements and make SKU- and store-level restocking decisions to maximize sales.
