Leading vendor managed inventory service complements commerce network solutions portfolio to maximize supply chain performance


Coventry & Manchester UK. 18th January 2018 – TrueCommerce, a global provider of trading partner connectivity and integration solutions, announced today that PJH, who is part of the Globe Union group, has improved internal efficiencies, by implementing a more efficient EDI solution.

Over the last four decades, PJH has been at the forefront of distribution suppling to over 2,000 independent retailers, 16 out of the 20 larger house builders, and multi-channel retailers such as B&Q, Screwfix and Argos.

EDI used to be a time consuming, problematic area of the business for PJH which has now been revolutionised since moving to TrueCommerce. Graham Allcroft, Head of IT at PJH explains “The burden of EDI is now controlled and performed by TrueCommerce, giving PJH more time to spend on other areas of the business. It runs in the background with very little input needed… By utilising the managed service solution, PJH reaps the rewards, allowing our IT teams to focus on more valuable projects.”

The TrueCommerce solution has not only improved PJH’s current trading network, but by providing a scalable solution for different sized businesses, they can now trade with their smaller customers and suppliers via EDI. Allcroft notes: “We have a number of suppliers who don’t currently trade via EDI, so the web portal and e-invoicing solutions are ideal to expand our electronic trading network to our smaller partners.”

Jon Hill, Sales Executive at TrueCommerce describes “The solution from TrueCommerce has been invaluable for PJH. PJH now benefit from a fully managed EDI service and no longer have to spend time and resources onboarding new suppliers, resulting in a more cost effective solution. They can now easily expand their trading network, whilst improving the relationships they have with both their suppliers and customers.”
