Sainsbury’s is to roll out Wesupply to its non-food supply chain.
The system is already being used in the food supply chain, giving some 900 suppliers browser access to Sainsbury’s information.
Ed Thomas, Sainsbury’s logistics IT programme manager said: “Wesupply have consistently delivered quality code to agreed timescales and budgets. They have always been very constructive and flexible when challenges arose, which has made working with them very satisfying.”
The new initiative is predominantly aimed at providing improved communications, visibility and accuracy within the supply chain for some 800 suppliers from Europe and Asia Pacific.
Sainsbury’s will also implement the final part of its Foods Replatforming Project where the Wesupply electronic trading application will be used to manage and monitor the flow of all EDI data within the Sainsbury’s extended supply chain.
