East of England Co-op Society, one of the largest consumer co-operatives in the UK, chose EDI PLUS to roll out EDI across their entire supplier community. They focus on sourcing locally supporting over 140 smaller local suppliers in their region.
Not only do we provide the EDI capability required for the East of England Co-op’s larger suppliers, we also offer an EDI web portal for their smaller local suppliers that enables them to trade electronically as well.
Adopting the EDI PLUS Fully Managed Service, East of England Co-op have been able to take full advantage of all the benefits an outsourced solution provides, such as technical flexibility and an expert team to deliver and support the service.
“Not only could EDI PLUS fulfil our technical requirements but their managed service approach also really impressed us. To have a delivery team available to support us during the rollout, managing the challenges of onboarding and ultimately be the first port of call for our suppliers when they are live was something we were very keen to take advantage of.”
John Dixey, Head of IT Development, East of England Co-op.
