G&J Greenall, a leading distiller and bottler of premium quality gin and vodka, has moved to Wesupply’s One-Time EDI platform for a fully-managed electronic trading service that allows the real-time exchange of critical business documents with its customer community.
G&J Greenall had a local PC based EDI facility, supported remotely by third party consultants and VAN providers, however, the company wanted to make a step-change in its customer-facing integration capabilities and thus opted for a hosted, managed service solution from Wesupply that offered enhanced support, increased transactional visibility, and real-time automated alerts for problem resolution.
"By moving to a fully hosted One-Time hub on the Wesupply network, we will have full connectivity with our key client base – companies such as Tesco, Morrisons, ASDA, Sainsbury’s, The Co-operative, and Bookers," says Pete Revill, IS Manager at G&J Greenall. "With a common view of the full purchase order to invoice cycle we will have a far clearer view of demand which will help us enhance our performance with our customers."
"Along with all the operational benefits, G&J Greenall wanted to be able to better manage and forecast their EDI related costs, so they viewed the ‘fixed price’ approach offered by Wesupply as very favourable. We were able to offer a ‘fixed price’ for the three year term of the contract and additionally, we fixed our fees for connecting new clients to their hub, giving G&J Greenall the flexibility they needed for an expanding customer base,’ says Andy Watts, Sales Manager at Wesupply.
