We have moved to the early stages of testing for a new EDI partner for our newsagency and convenience store customers. While the new partner will be of interest to plenty of our customers, the broadening focus on our EDI links is what interests us as it is through these that we can enhance the practical help we can deliver … thereby making our software more valuable without the need to invest more in the software.
Adding EDI links attracts more suppliers and that’s good news for everyone.
In more sophisticated marketplaces this is not big news as EDI is pervasive. In the independent retail channels such as newsagents and convenience stores EDI is still considered by many to be innovative.
