Picture this… You distribute a comprehensive range of ambient goods to your group including Spar, Eurospar, Mace and Valuecentre. In addition, you also operate a nationwide chain of cash and carries and a national food services division trading BWG Food Service.

But, like many retailers you had achieved only partial EDI enablement with your supply chain. As a result, you were seeking to achieve operational efficiencies in its buying, supply chain and finance functions.

So, you turn to TrueCommerce to drive its EDI roll out using TrueCommerce’s proven Supplier Adoption Programme. This comprises a proactive and comprehensive communications exercise and offers suppliers the opportunity to trade electronically using either traditional EDI or TrueCommerce’s easy-to-use web solution, branded for BWG specifically.

Now, our solution allows your suppliers to upload or type in their invoices, credit notes and despatch notes without the need for EDI technology to be in place. Your suppliers are also able to upload or key in their product catalogue and price information where it is matched against BWG cost cards using TrueCommerce’s Price Matching application in the cloud. The TrueCommerce solution delivers significant cost savings and efficiencies throughout the supply chain and as a result, BWG will be achieving 100% EDI enablement and 100% price matching through the use of the TrueCommerce solution.


“We are pleased to have entered into the strategic relationship with TrueCommerce and to now see the full benefits of EDI and the price matching processes.”
