Growing its Network of Retail Trade Partners
The Future Is Bamboo, a fast-growing Canadian-based supplier of affordable, eco-friendly bamboo essentials to big box stores, grocery stores and pharmacies, turned to DiCentral, a leading global provider of business-to-business integration (B2Bi) Managed Services, to scale its trading partner onboarding process and company growth.
The environment-friendly manufacturer leverages DiCentral’s EDI solutions to automate ordering and invoicing for its well-known retail trade partners, including Harmon Face Value, Bulk Barn, Metro and Federated Coop Limited.
“We researched different EDI companies, and it was a ‘no brainer’ to choose DiCentral,” said Mathieu Simard, CEO and co-founder at The Future Is Bamboo. “We read consistently good reviews about DiCentral and saw they had the most sensible pricing as well.”
Simard adds that DiCentral’s solutions are easy to deploy and backed by excellent technical support that is highly regarded among Simard’s team. The Future Is Bamboo partners with DiCentral to optimize its supply chain processes including invoicing, advanced shipping notices (ASNs), and shipping labels.
“Using DiCentral adds credibility to our brand because it instantly shows we’re ready for bigger accounts,” said Naomi Berg, a co-founder at The Future Is Bamboo. “It’s important for us as a brand to have the right tools to fulfill orders, bolster our relationships with trading partners, and grow along the way.”
Products from The Future Is Bamboo, including a wide variety of oral and personal care products, are available in more than 2,000 stores throughout North America with no signs of slowing. DiCentral helps enable this notable growth through quick onboarding of new trade partners and reduced ordering errors. The company’s appeal includes numerous certifications, including P.E.T.A.’s vegan and cruelty free accreditation, BPA free, Health Canada registered, and FSC (Responsible Forestry). Its customers continue to turn to its affordable eco-friendly products as they look for sustainable and versatile substitutes for plastic everyday essentials.
“DiCentral is privileged to partner with an upcoming influencer of societal impacts to scale their business processes and collaboration with major retailers,” said Thuy Mai, CEO at DiCentral. “Scaling the invoicing and shipping process can cement and invigorate a trade partnership, and we’re proud to play a role in their success.”
