Thomas Armstrong (Holdings) Ltd., one of the UK's largest privately owned manufacturers of building products and suppliers of building services, has selected Wesupply to deliver a fully-managed electronic trading service for the real-time exchange of critical business documents with its customers.
Thomas Armstrong were already using Wesupply to trade electronically with a key customer - a leading builder's merchant, when they experienced service issues with their incumbent EDI provider, while at the same time receiving an additional EDI mandate. The decision was subsequently made to consolidate all their EDI operations onto the Wesupply platform.
"We decided to move all of our EDI capability on to one platform, as we wanted one point of contact for all EDI issues" says Paul Armstrong, Financial Director at Thomas Armstrong. "We chose Wesupply's OneTime solution, as we'd had a good experience of working with Wesupply in the past and most importantly they have a proven track record of connecting with our customers".
The company will be using the Wesupply platform to automate the exchange of orders, invoices and acknowledgements with five of their customers.
"Thomas Armstrong recognises the benefits that can be achieved by centralising electronic trading and we are delighted to be able to assist" says Jerry Quinn, Sales Director at Wesupply. "By moving to Wesupply's fully managed, outsourced solution, the complexities of electronic trading are no longer Thomas Armstrong's concern, enabling the company to focus on the core objectives of their business".
