"Our online business has more than doubled in the current market, and is a key channel for our advertising, promotions and brand awareness. I confidently recommend TrueCommerce-ecUtopia to people who ask, and it’s nice to see how familiar people already are with it in our industry.” - Stuart Peterson, vice president of supply chain with RC Willey Home Furnishings.
To take EDI to another level of effectiveness, RC Willey turned to a new partner: TrueCommerce-ecUtopia. TrueCommerce, a veteran provider of tools for supply-chain and trading-partner connectivity, acquired ecUtopia, which specializes in service to medium-sized businesses, in 2019. The division enabled RC Willey to exchange two key documents with vendors: purchase orders (EDI message format 850) and P.O. acknowledgements (EDI 855). The company is currently implementing a third transaction set, advance ship notice, or ASN (EDI 856).
The Cactus Water Co. is bubbling up sales of the ¡CACTUS! brand through a mix of cloud-based EDI retail chain connections and sales on Amazon.com.
Retailers are often lambasted for being technology laggards. While the industry as a whole could and should do a better job of adopting leading-edge solutions, the fact remains that in many cases, existing legacy applications can still provide tremendous value.
