Our B2B managed service reduces the daily involvement required for CPG suppliers to fulfil their customers’ EDI requirements. We enable suppliers to focus on their competences, whether they are using EDI for the first time in response to a customers’ requirements or simply moving from an outdated, expensive on-premise system.
If you are a CPG supplier, TrueCommerce can connect you with all the main retailers including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Aldi, Asda, Argos and Marks & Spencer. Alternatively if you are a supplier or wholesaler that needs to connect with the main CPG manufacturers, such as Proctor & Gamble, Unilever, Kimberly-Clark, United Foods and Colgate-Palmolive, we can also help.

Radnor Hills Mineral Water Company selected TrueCommerce’s Electronic Trading solution to meet increased demand from customers to trade electronically. Radnor Hills are submitting invoices to, and receiving purchase orders from, major supermarkets such as Netto, Co-op, ASDA, Tesco and Morrisons. Since the beginning of 2007, Radnor Hills’ customers required them to trade electronically. However, its existing EDI solution proved complex to set up and roll out in the timescales required, taking months to get just one customer up and running. With TrueCommerce Radnor Hills are able to start trading electronically with customers in less than one week.
Suttons’s Consumer Products implemented TrueCommerce’s OneTime solution to automate the exchange of supply chain data with its customers. Their existing EDI solution did not provide a scalable solution to bring new customers on board in an efficient way, and as the company grew, the complex and highly time-consuming process of connecting to new customers proved unmanageable. TrueCommerce provides Sutton’s with a fully managed, outsourced solution, enabling them to rapidly integrate their stock management, ordering and distribution processes with those of their customers. The improved transparency within the customer ordering process and availability of real-time supply chain data has resulted in greater confidence and improved relationships.
