Switching EDI Providers
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a business critical process for organisations across many sectors, whether it is complying with your customers' EDI mandates or trading with your suppliers electronically to maximise supply chain efficiency. It's therefore understandable that changing EDI providers can be a daunting prospect, however due to the crucial nature of the documents that are exchanged, it is important that organisations do not settle for an EDI solution that is not delivering what they need.
At TrueCommerce we understand how important it is that all of your customers and suppliers are moved to a new EDI solution without disrupting their business or yours, which is why we have spent many years refining our processes to remove all of the potential risks of switching EDI providers. We have transitioned hundreds of companies, both large and small, who wanted to switch EDI providers and move away from ageing or underperforming EDI platforms to a modern EDI managed service.
“The transition was smooth thanks to the thorough testing process supported by TrueCommerce.
Over 1,000 customers and suppliers were moved seamlessly on to the TrueCommerce platform.”
Mark Elvy, IT Development Manager at Travis Perkins plc.
