Atlas creates electronic trading community for national industry body

When the Irish Hardware and Building Materials Association (IHBMA) wished to achieve cost savings and improve business performance across its membership, it turned to GS1 and Atlas for help.

Collectively the parties worked together to define a solution specifically for the industry. As a result Atlas configured its core functionality - Secure Managed File Transfer (SMFT) network, its web trading portal and EDI integration software – to create a solution ideal for all parties, whatever shape or size.

Using a choice of either EDI or web forms to exchange orders and invoices means that less time is spent printing and posting. Instead, documents can be prepared online and sent using GS1s Global Location Numbers (GLNs).

The benefits include reduced processing costs which directly improve the bottom line, no handling of paper, no lost files, increased accuracy and the freeing up of staff to focus on core issues including sales.

Jim Copeland, the Chief Executive of the IHBMA has been a strong advocate of EDI to his members and the wider industry as a means of increasing efficiency and controlling costs.

Said Mr Copeland: “This initiative is driven by a need to take a significant level of cost out of the supply chain and improve business practices.

“We feel that this is too good an opportunity for our industry to miss, especially at this time of great challenges within our sector.

“Atlas committed to understanding our specific industry requirements and configured its core solution to meet them and that’s why they’re our EDI solution partner.

“We would strongly recommend that you adopt EDI by contacting Atlas, GS1, or IHBMA offices for assistance.”

Added Atlas Managing Director Allan Gray: “Naturally we are delighted to be working closely with the IHBMA. It’s also important to add that this result would not have been achieved without adherence to GS1 standards for EDI, Global Location Codes and GTINS (barcodes).”

“Atlas committed to understanding our requirements and configured its core solution to meet them - that’s why they’re our EDI solution partner.”
