SHS Group choose TrueCommerce to modernise their electronic trading infrastructure.

Coventry & Manchester UK. 11 March 2019 – TrueCommerce, a global provider of trading partner, integration and unified commerce services, today announced that the SHS Group, owners of a portfolio of premium brands, has moved to TrueCommerce to streamline internal processes and modernise its electronic trading infrastructure.

As a major force within the UK and Ireland FMCG market, SHS Group began to look for an EDI provider who could cater for its existing business relationships and facilitate future success. SHS, explained, “Our existing on-premise EDI solution was becoming obsolete and as a result we were looking for a comprehensive EDI solution capable of managing our EDI relationships with our customer base.

The decision to select TrueCommerce was based on a number of pivotal factors; we felt the company’s extensive experience in the market reflected our own presence in the FMCG market; the solution seemed to cater for our current as well as future requirements; and finally, the professionalism and approachability of the TrueCommerce team.”

Through the TrueCommerce EDI fully managed service, SHS have been able to free up internal resources that were previously required to both maintain and monitor its EDI solution. As part of the managed service SHS have, and will continue to, benefit from the TrueCommerce migration process, whereby all testing and trading partner communications are taken care of by TrueCommerce’s dedicated on-boarding and implementation teams. The process has been designed to be as straightforward as possible for clients such as SHS, enabling them to focus on their core business.

Keith Gallagher, Ireland Sales Manager at TrueCommerce, said, “With the OneTime platform SHS benefit from a truly scalable solution. Not only do we manage their existing trading partner network but with our robust cloud based service the company has a platform for future growth and the capacity to expand as and when they win new business.

It’s been a pleasure to work with the team at SHS and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them in the future.”
