Formica Group Expands EasyLink EDI Managed Services to Europe
Outsourced Mapping Capabilities Speed New Partner On-Boarding and Increase IT Resource Availability
While Formica Group has been utilizing EasyLink for EDI Managed Services in the United States, the Formica Group United States technical staff was supporting European locations with in-line translation and mapping activities. To establish consistent EDI services for Europe over a secure, world-class VAN and enable its technical resources to focus on other business initiatives, Formica Group expanded EasyLink's outsourced supply chain services to include all mapping and translation services for the EMEA region.
"Leveraging EasyLink's B2B services reduces the time it takes to enable electronic trading with new customers, and greatly reduces the operating expenses associated with doing our own internal mapping," said Philip Catlin, Application Development Manager, Formica Group, North America. "Our IT staff now has greater bandwidth to support our corporate technology strategies."
"EasyLink's supply chain solutions provide us with a much needed regional skill set without having to maintain an internal EDI workforce," explained Tony Marron, European Development Manager, Formica Group Europe. "We connect rapidly and securely with trading partners worldwide, and the tracking and reporting features provide excellent visibility into the process."
Kevin Maloney, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at EasyLink, noted, "EasyLink's EDI Managed Services allow our global customers to leverage our supply chain expertise to meet the changing requirements of ongoing map creation and maintenance without the expense of premise-based solutions."
