But, you’re handling your EDI requirements in house, and it’s draining your IT resources. As you continue to grow and trade electronically with more customers, the management of EDI becomes unsustainable for a busy IT department. Also, despite being an early adopter of EDI, you’re not an expert in the thousands of EDI standards that now exist.

“We recognised the huge efficiency gains that EDI provided, however increasing the number of customers we traded with electronically wasn’t feasible whilst EDI was managed in-house, consequently our customer service teams were having to manually key hundreds of order lines every day. We therefore made the decision to move to the TrueCommerce EDI managed service to allow us to trade electronically with more of our customers, whilst freeing up our IT department to focus on other areas of the business.”
