EDI service for the retail industry

TrueCommerce EDI for retailers - improve sales, profits and customer loyalty with the right products in the right place at the right time


Leading EDI and e-invoicing provider to the UK retail sector

In today’s challenging marketplace, retailers are striving to increase sales and profit margins, whilst also driving service standards and customer loyalty. Many retailers combine large store networks with busy online operations, each generating huge warehousing, fulfillment and logistics challenges. Global sourcing is now the norm, with supplier management complicated by distance, cultural differences and local working practices.

Today’s retail customers are more demanding than ever, requiring premium quality, variety and great prices. In addition, customers are increasingly expecting same day or next day delivery, whether it be directly to them or to the store for them to pick up. With this complexity comes a challenge but also a great opportunity for retailers.
