Lindab, an international manufacturer of ventilation and sheet metal products for the construction industry, is scaling up its connectivity with key customers through Wesupply's OneTime EDI solution. Lindab were already using Wesupply to trade electronically with a key customer - a leading builder's merchant - but came under increasing pressure from other customers to trade electronically.
Lindab is to establish its own customer facing 'hub' on the Wesupply platform that will enable the building products manufacturer to exchange important trading messages, including orders, acknowledgements, advance shipment notices (ASNs) and invoices, with its growing customer base. Lindab will have a fully-managed electronic trading service for its purchase order management process - improving customer collaboration and supply chain visibility.
"We had a good experience of using the Wesupply platform for trading electronically with a key customer. When further customers wanted us to move to EDI for exchanging documents, we knew the advantages of using a managed service provider and saw the benefits that we could achieve through having our own 'hub' to connect with customers. The real-time exchange of critical business documents through the One-Time solution will enable us to share a common view of the full purchase order to invoice cycle - increasing our overall supply chain performance and flexibility," says Mika Repo, Finance Director at Lindab.
"We are delighted to extend our relationship with Lindab, in assisting them in meeting their customers' electronic trading mandates" says Jerry Quinn, Sales Director at Wesupply. "Lindab are amongst a large, and growing, community on the Wesupply platform within the building and construction industry."
Lindab will be using the Wesupply platform to automate the exchange of orders, invoices and advanced shipment notices with its suppliers.
