ecUtopia Helps Grocers Achieve Digital Transformation Without Costly Investments

SAN DIEGO – Jan. 8, 2019 – ecUtopia, a leading provider of cloud-based electronic data interchange (EDI) and supply chain management solutions that connect retailers, suppliers, manufacturers, 3PL’s and consumers across multiple industries, is entering the retail grocery market to assist grocers in transforming their supply chains without the burden of large investments and complicated implementations.

ecUtopia’s innovative approach helps Grocers leverage their existing technology while enabling enhanced supply chain functions in various formats. ecUtopia offers an easy to use web portal to allow Grocers to enable their entire supplier ecosystem. Our ability to translate all data sources into our cloud-based application for suppliers with little to no technology infrastructure, allows a grocer to send and receive all data consistently.

With ecUtopia’s solution, Grocers can leverage the power of Ecommerce, selling from their website and shipping product directly to their customers from their manufacturers, reducing overall inventory costs.  This also allows for Grocers and their suppliers to learn and understand consumer behavior through sharing of critical information, improving efficiencies across the supply chain.  This solution is just one example of the many features of ecUtopia’s platform taking customers Beyond EDI.

Some additional unique features of ecUtopia’s solution:

· Accelerated Vendor Onboarding – ecUtopia creates an environment that fosters the retailer/supplier partnership and makes it easy for the supplier to comply with, yet still meets the Grocer’s requirements.

· Small Supplier Enablement – with ecUtopia’s easy to use ecPortal, suppliers with little to no technical capabilities can quickly and easily comply with Grocer’s EDI and e-Commerce Requirements.

· Enhanced Order Management – Ability to process your orders and keep complete visibility  from any part of your business throughout the entire order processing window.

“Understanding that EDI is a tool and most often thought of as a back-office function, yet critical to the business, we wanted to bring our expertise in taking customers Beyond EDI and reap the benefits of the world of innovation that ecUtopia has built,” said Phil Kenney, president and CEO of ecUtopia.
