Regatta simplifies data exchange with Inovis

Outdoor equipment supplier Regatta has selected Inovis’ TrustedLink i series software to improve the exchange of sales order data with retailers.

The software is designed to simplify electronic data exchange (EDI) communications to support the company’s European operations in more than 30 countries.

TrustedLink i series, which is based on a web interface, provides Regatta with a 24/7 “always on” platform that automatically translates documents such as orders and delivery notes into various data formats and connectivity standards required by retailers, meaning sales order processing information can be processed more quickly and accurately at both ends of the supply chain.

Chris Bulmer, group IT director at Regatta, said: “The complexities of trading with different countries meant that our new EDI system must be able to support the latest data standards and communication protocols being adopted by retailers across Europe.

“TrustedLink works like a Swiss army knife for our business, providing a multi-functional portal through which all parts of our organisation can access and process live order information, ensuring we can meet customer requirements in a timely and efficient fashion.”
