Jenks & Cattell Engineering Ltd implement electronic trading with their key customer using TrueCommerce.

TrueCommerce, a global provider of trading partner connectivity and integration solutions, announced today that Jenks & Cattell Engineering, one of the UK’s leading metal presswork engineering companies, has implemented the TrueCommerce EDI solution.

As one of the longest established metal pressings, laser fabrications and welding companies in the UK, Jenks & Cattel manage business relationships with some of the largest companies in their market. One of their largest customers, Caterpillar, require that their suppliers transact electronic business documents and Jenks & Cattell recognised this as the perfect opportunity to improve their internal business processes.

Jenks & Cattell’s OneTime EDI solution will seamlessly transact and translate five different message types with Caterpillar. Integration with Microsoft Dynamics NAV was key to their requirements and TrueCommerce’s integrated solution has revolutionised their ordering process by eliminating manual intervention when communicating electronically with their customers. By automating their internal processes, Jenks & Cattell have seen a substantial reduction in cumbersome admin tasks and can now reinvest this time into more critical areas of the business.

Eleanor Imray, Sales and Marketing Assistant Manager at Jenks & Cattell said, ‘the decision to opt for an EDI solution stemmed from a desire to meet our customers trading requirements and improve our order/invoice processes.’

Craig Greenall, Sales Executive explained ‘TrueCommerce’s extensive experience in working with and supporting NAV was crucial to the smooth transition from manual to automated ordering and invoicing processes.’ He highlighted that ‘with the TrueCommerce OneTime solution, Jenks & Cattell have benefitted from a truly scalable platform. Initially, Caterpillar were the catalyst for Jenks & Cattell’s decision to implement an EDI solution, however, as a successful and growing business, their fully managed and integrated EDI solution is the perfect platform for their future growth.’

‘We pride ourselves on our service and are pleased that we have been able to help Jenks and Cattell meet their customer’s requirements and experience the benefits that our managed service can provide. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them as their business continues to grow in the future.’
