Urban Fresh Foods selects TrueCommerce to manage complete trading partner network.

Coventry & Manchester 9th August 2018 – TrueCommerce, a global provider of trading partner connectivity and integration solutions, announced today that Urban Fresh Foods, a leading healthy snack food company, has increased productivity, efficiency and accuracy since outsourcing EDI to TrueCommerce.

Urban Fresh Foods began as an idea to help busy urbanites conveniently snack on healthy foods whilst carrying on with their hectic schedules. The company’s rising popularity has led to them aiming to produce over a billion portions of their product within the year and Philip Van Leeuwen, Application Developer, stated that they ‘needed a robust solution which could manage the exchange of their EDI messages and streamline their administrative tasks.’

The TrueCommerce Fully Managed EDI solution has brought a variety of operational benefits to Urban Fresh Foods, by seamlessly integrating with their back office system, SAP, Urban Fresh have been able to automate cumbersome internal processes and streamline their order to cash cycle.

Urban Fresh Foods incumbent EDI solution’s inability to keep abreast of their increasing business demands was the catalyst for their decision to implement TrueCommerce’s Fully Managed OneTime solution. As a growing business, the company required a solution which could facilitate this growth, and with pre-existing positive business relationships with TrueCommerce via their parent company, Lotus Bakeries, Urban Fresh knew they had a solution and team they could trust with their expansion. Philip highlighted that ‘we have had negative experiences with EDI providers in the past but the TrueCommerce team’s professionalism alleviated any concerns we had. TrueCommerce’s platform has led to significant reductions in processing times and a vast upturn in efficiency throughout the business, which ultimately has led to cost savings.’

Craig Greenall, Sales Executive at TrueCommerce highlighted that with the OneTime solution, Urban Fresh Foods have benefitted from a truly scalable solution. The seamless SAP integration has enabled the company to reinvest time which was being spent on administrative and processing tasks into more crucial areas of the business. Our previous relationships with Lotus Bakeries placed us in good stead to migrate all their EDI data and traffic swiftly and without any downtime. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Urban Fresh Foods and Lotus Bakeries as we see their business go from strength to strength in the future.’
