OXFORD, England, March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Supply chain digitisation and automation specialist OmPrompt has today announced the expansion of their EDI solution into the UK top retailers market.
The expansion of EDIConnect further complements their suite of Smart Automation Solutions, and will mean OmPrompt clients who already have an existing connection to the OmPrompt platform can now quickly connect to many of the UK's top retailers, as part of this simple and future proof EDI solution.
Steve Luscombe, OmPrompt CSO, remarked, "Growing our EDI managed service offering in the UK retail sector means we can now offer FMCG suppliers a complete pre-configured EDI solution covering all the major UK food retailers."
OmPrompt CEO John Wakeman added, "Retailers are holding less inventory and pushing suppliers for faster turnaround times. This pressure from customers has meant that all costs to service clients are being re-evaluated. It's now more about how you deal with EDI in-house, or using a managed service that is the big question."
OmPrompt clients will have the ability to connect with the likes of; Aldi, Appleby Westward, ASDA, Booker, Co op, Costco, EHBooth, Iceland, InterBev, James Hall, Marks and Spencer, Morrison, Nisa, Ocado, Sainsbury, Tesco, and Waitrose.
In addition to this expansion of retailers, the utilisation of EDIConnect allows global B2B manufacturing clients to keep up with the supply chain innovations which have an impact on their EDI requirements. It introduces a reduction in cost and deployment times for clients in comparison to the challenges and complexities of in-house maintenance, in line with the requirements of the changing market.
John Wakeman explained further, "The costs to support in-house EDI support and maintenance can be dramatically reduced by outsourcing to a managed service provider with a transaction based pricing model. Service levels can be improved as well as on-boarding times for new trading partners. EDI is here to stay!"
OmPrompt's Smart Automation Solutions also include full automation with ZeroTouch, and cognitive automation with Teach&Learn.
