Babco moves to fully integrated EDI with Wesupply
EDI is not a new concept for Babco, in fact the company has been utilising numerous web browser interfaces to trade with five of the company’s key customers –leading UK grocery retailers. However, the company wanted to reduce the workload of their staff by consolidating all of their electronic trading on to one platform, which could be integrated with their back office system and third party warehouse.
Babco will utilise Wesupply’s OneTime solution for the real-time exchange of orders and invoices with its customers.
“A key factor in choosing Wesupply as our EDI provider was the company’s ability to undertake the full on-boarding of our customer base – both now and in the future” said Tony Ould, Finance and Logistics Director at Babco UK Ltd. “It was also important that the solution could be integrated with our SAGE Line 50 ERP system”.
“Babco has a clear understanding of the benefits that can be achieved from centralising and outsourcing their electronic trading to a SaaS provider” says Ben Holmes, Sales Executive at Wesupply. “We look forward to reducing Babco’s day-to-day involvement in EDI, enabling the company to free up internal resources and streamline their trading processes”.
Wesupply provides a fully managed and outsourced electronic business-to-business integration service, using a unique approach that maximises supply chain collaboration between independent organisations. This approach has consistently helped our customers secure tangible operational cost savings along with improved customer service, since the business was founded in 1999. Companies across all industries, including Retail, CPG, Energy and Manufacturing rely on Wesupply to manage business-critical information flows for their extended supply chain processes.
