Methven joins forces with Wesupply EDI

Showers and brassware manufacturer Methven is now using OneTime, the fully managed Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) service from Wesupply.

Methven joins forces with Wesupply EDI

Wesupply‘s EDI service will increase the speed, ease and cost efficiency of Methven‘s exchange of critical business documents, including all invoices, credits and orders, with its key customers – NMBS, Unimer, Travis Perkis, SGBD, Wolseley and PTS.

OneTime is fully integrated with Methven’s new Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP platform, helping to maximise order processing speeds, reduce order-to-cash cycles and avoid error-prone and costly data rekeying.

Problem management and resolution for Methven’s previous on-premise EDI solution had a high dependency on both in-house knowledge and vendor support. Consequently the solution was proving costly to run and difficult to manage.

Wesupply’s fully managed service will enable the company to simplify and de-risk its EDI investments while achieving gains in process efficiency and visibility.

Methven went for One Time after seeing it in operation at SGBD UK. Rich Evans, IT Director at Methven, said, “As we were already on the Wesupply network as part of our relationship with SGBD UK we had seen the benefits that could be achieved from a fully managed EDI service.”

Jerry Quinn, sales director at Wesupply, said, “Meeting the EDI requirements of building supply chains can challenge an organisation’s performance and ability to focus on their core business. Methven recognises that by moving to fully managed EDI it can improve its efficiency whilst also gaining control of IT costs.”
