TrueCommerce, a global provider of trading partner connectivity, integration and unified commerce solutions, has announced that Cavender's, a premier specialty retailer of Western and work footwear, apparel and accessories for the American South and Southwest, has adopted its TrueCommerce ecUtopia EDI platform to seamlessly collaborate with their entire supplier community and boost supply chain efficiency.
Part of the reason the company selected TrueCommerce ecUtopia was for the ability to integrate with Jesta ERP for optimised order management and supply chain visibility.
“Integration to our ERP and getting our vendors onboard quickly with minimal interruption to our business was critical to meet our milestones,” said Larry Waterman, Chief Operating Officer, Cavender’s. “This move to automating our supply chain was a core milestone to continue to meet our goals for accelerated growth while continuing to serve and delight our customers, and it was not easy to find an EDI platform that could truly meet our needs. TrueCommerce ecUtopia solved this problem, and now we are able to achieve real-time supply chain visibility and optimised order management.”
TrueCommerce ecUtopia contains all key components of a complete EDI solution: data translation, pre-connected global trading partner network and managed services - all in one integrated package from one vendor.
“Forward-thinking companies like Cavender’s are constantly investing in technology that helps them be more connected with their supplier base and do business in multiple directions,” said TrueCommerce president Ross Elliott. “We are excited to see this industry leader adopting our solution. Now this successful retailer will benefit from our global ecosystem that interconnects thousands of trading partners.”
TrueCommerce’s ecUtopia’s EDI offering is a part of TrueCommerce Foundry - a broad set of unified commerce services and apps that connects customers, suppliers, channels, and systems. This platform revolutionizes supply chain visibility and collaboration by helping organisations make the most of their omni-channel initiatives through business P2P connectivity, order management, collaborative replenishment, intelligent fulfilment, cross-functional analytics, and product information management.

A true managed services provider, TrueCommerce manages the onboarding process for new trading partners as well as the ongoing management of trading partner specific mapping and labeling changes.
