Community-Focused Canadian Retail Store Gains Agility And Reach In Collaboration With Leading Cloud-Based EDI Solution

Houston – December 22, 2017.  DiCentral, a leading global provider of B2Bi managed services, today announced its partnership with Fields Stores Ltd., a Canadian discount store company with 62 locations throughout the western provinces.  Fields will use DiCentral’s B2B managed services expertise to enable, on-board, and manage Fields’ extensive supply chain.

DiCentral’s cloud-based EDI integrated solution will enable Fields to upgrade from a manual processing supply management center to a web-based center that automatically interacts with their back-office system to manage the entire order process and thus help to reduce errors and increase efficiencies. DiCentral already has EDI relationships with many of Fields’ top suppliers, ensuring that new migrations to the platform used by Fields will be speedy and painless.

“Good discipline will be forged between Fields and its suppliers,” said Benjamin Joseph, Fields CFO. “DiCentral’s knowledgeable and experienced team contributed to our choice of EDI solution options,” said Joseph.  

DiCentral’s dedicated Canadian presence and the ability to respond quickly to supply chain challenges, helped convince Joseph that the EDI solution provider’s tools and processes could ensure supplier compliance with Fields.  Today Joseph is looking forward to installation when they enjoy the efficiencies, error-reductions, and stress reduction on the local teams.

 “At DiCentral we pride ourselves on our EDI expertise and our customer support,” said Thuy Mai, DiCentral’s President and CEO. “We look forward to fulfilling our promise to streamline Fields’ order management system so they can take more control and be a stronger competitive retailer.”
