Easy and efficient onboarding of all your EDI suppliers

Supplier onboarding can be a complex and arduous task, particularly when a large number of suppliers are involved. As part of our supplier enablement solution, TrueCommerce manages the entire supplier onboarding process for you, removing complexity and risk from the equation with defined processes that are continually refined.

Each of the steps involved in the EDI supplier onboarding process is critically important in ensuring the maximum number of suppliers are onboarded. Technical specifications must be agreed and implemented correctly, a transparent onboarding process must be put in place and the process itself must be constantly followed up on.

Our end-to-end managed service includes outreach, facilitation and management of the entire program. We even handle ongoing change management and support for your supplier community.  Our supplier onboarding process consists of three phases:

  • The requirements gathering phase is where an experienced Business Analyst will work with you to understand the scope and objectives of the project.
  • The adoption phase encompasses the end to end communication with the suppliers, from first contact advising them of a new initiative (or move from an existing EDI provider), through to the assignment of an Implementation Consultant.
  • The enablement phase consists of testing all EDI supplier messages to ensure compliance with the scope and objectives that were defined at the beginning of the process.


Accelerate compliance with supplier performance management

Supplier management can be challenging and the more suppliers, the bigger the headache. Its difficult to keep abreast of which suppliers are performing best and more importantly, which are underperforming. But with up-to-date benchmarks and scorecards addressing supplier EDI performance you can monitor and report on your supplier network which enables you to accelerate order fulfilment, optimise on shelf availability and ultimately, improve performance.
