While it’s easy for small business owners to think that digital transformation is primarily an issue for large enterprises, many retailers prefer, or even require, all their suppliers to be EDI savvy.
Ace Hardware has over 5,000 stores around the world with the majority of those stores independently owned and operated by local entrepreneurs. Ace changed the retail landscape by allowing individual stores to purchase merchandise in bulk to save money, enabling even the smaller stores to compete effectively at retail despite larger stores in their market. To be stocked in Ace, all suppliers – even other small businesses – need to become a preferred Ace EDI supplier. You can stay competitive and achieve Ace EDI compliance with our small business EDI solution, OpenText™ Freeway Cloud.
