To support its supply chain network, UAE-based FMCG distributor NTDE, along with its sister 3PL company – INL, has deployed the Infinite EDI Suite.

Under the contract concluded, the EDI provider – Infinite IT Solutions – is to establish Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between NTDE Group and its business partners across the globe.

This means that transaction and transport documents will be exchanged automatically, replacing communication by fax, email and post.

Infinite EDI Suite, which works on a computer-to-computer basis, will connect the central systems of NTDE Group and its business partners. This way the parties will be able to send and receive transaction and transport documents instantly, via a dedicated EDI platform.

This technological change is expected to introduce a number of improvements for NTDE Group, including a shorter order-to-delivery cycle, the ability to process more transaction documents with greater accuracy, and an improvement in data security.

NTDE Group opted for the services of Infinite IT Solutions given the provider’s experience in implementing EDI solutions in the Middle East and substantial business knowledge of logistics and FMCG industries, the company said in a release.

Being a cloud-based solution, Infinite EDI Suite can be used to establish EDI connectivity with business partners worldwide, so the solution is ready to grow with NTDE’s business.
