Townsend Coates to expand EDIRichard Wilson
Townsend Coates is expanding the use of EDI – electronic data interchange – with its major suppliers as part of its business development programme known as TC-2000 Total Commitment.
“We already use EDI with Amphenol and we intend to expand its use with our other franchises,” said Alan Cook, managing director at Townsend Coates.
The distributor now has the capability to accept bar-coded product from suppliers and to bar code product for the customer. In addition, it has also created a company Web site and has installed an automated voice and data network at its Leicester site.
“To achieve further growth we need to continue to change our business,” added Cook. “One area of ongoing change and investment is in technology.”
