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).
