Transalis Ltd has announced the immediate availability of iComConnect.NET, a Pay As You Go EDI Solution that allows companies to trade electronically with all of its customers large and small. This unique solution, developed by a British company, is set to deliver the cost savings and efficiency benefits that EDI provides for potentially thousands of small & medium size companies in the UK and beyond.
Transalis has developed iComConnect, a hosted, web-based application that enables businesses to exchange information electronically, regardless of file formats, size of organisation or technical capabilities. It allows small suppliers to meet e-Business requirements without the prohibitive investment in expensive EDI software and servers. From as little as a 39 per month subscription, small and medium sized suppliers can compete on a level playing field with larger organisations that have invested in complete EDI systems.
Paul Simpson, Chief Executive Officer of Transalis Ltd, comments, Independent research shows that a manual paper-based transaction costs up to 10 to process. Using iComConnect, companies can typically reduce this cost by over 90%. This is why larger companies, who process many hundreds or even thousands of orders each day, have identified this as a major opportunity for cost savings and are recommending the use of iComConnect to their suppliers. Until now, smaller companies have had no choice but to trade via paper or email because the cost of an EDI solution is beyond their means.
He continues, UsingHe WithWith iComConnect, companies are accessing the secure infrastructure of a powerful, easy-to-use hosted solution that delivers the EDI process to any businesses for a low monthly fee. This means EDI no longer requires a major and often prohibitive investment of money and time. This benefits everyone, from the large organisations that accrue the savings generated through increased automation and smaller companies that can trade on the same level playing field as their own customers, suppliers and competitors.
A typical UK small business that uses iComConnect to trade electronically with Boots Plc is U International Ltd, whose Commercial Manager Guy Rogers says, "iComConnect is great. It is so easy to use for both EDI orders and remittance notes received from Boots, and for submitting our invoices to them. EDI via iComConnect is practical, affordable and allows us to trade with Boots electronically very easily and without any problems.
