Picture this… Over the last hundred years, you’ve grown to be the largest retailer and distributor of building materials in the Nordic region. With more than 400 stores and almost 8,400 employees in nine countries you are especially known for the building material chains STARK and Silvan. You have a long tradition for working on automating your communication using EDI.

But, you turn to TrueCommerce. Less than 15 minutes after one of your suppliers has created the invoice, you have it in your systems. Compared to your previous process, where the invoice was sent physically by mail, this process makes it much easier to manage your business. Every year, you receive more than 1.5 million invoices in Denmark alone and even though the number of invoices continues to increase, you do not have to hire more staff to handle them. They are all processed by our EDI solution.
