Woodie’s selects Atlas Fusion e-Invoicing Service

June 20, 2014  |  Adoption, Electronic Invoicing, Europe

Who processes 300 million electronic invoices this year? Atlas Products International does!Woodie’s is a leading DIY Store and a subsidiary of Grafton Group plc, a predominantly UK and Ireland-based building materials group with 591 branches and a turnover of over €2 billion.

After a trial of full electronic data interchange (EDI) with 27 suppliers in the last 12 months, Woodie’s has selected the Atlas Fusion e-Invoicing Platform and Service to complete their electronic supply chain management with the rest of their suppliers in the next six months.

This will extend the current EDI solution to deliver a paperless order management solution. The Atlas e-invoicing solution will process more than 150,000 invoices and order transactions every year.

Traditional EDI and a E-invoicing portal

Woodies now offer two EDI solutions to their suppliers, traditional EDI and Woodie’s Atlas Fusion e-Invoicing Portal. The e-Invoicing portal is an option available to suppliers who do not wish to or are not in a position to implement a full traditional EDI system. Any supplier who has access to the internet can use the Woodie’s Atlas Fusion e-Invoicing Portal to receive their orders electronically from Woodie’s, print them (if required) and use the Order received to generate an Invoice (which can also be locally printed) when the goods have been shipped. Training for the Portal is provided via telephone by experienced Atlas personnel.

David Brennan, Woodie’s Financial Controller:
“We were able to initially pilot the Atlas Products solution for 27 of our suppliers. Once this was proven, it was easy for us to then choose the Atlas Fusion e-Invoicing solution so that all of our suppliers, regardless of volume provided, can benefit from paperless orders and invoices. We have already seen significant benefits in using the Atlas solution and look forward to a very successful partnership with them as we complete the roll-out.”

Michael Latimer, VP Group Sales Atlas Products:
“We are delighted that Woodie’s has chosen Atlas Products for such a major e-Invoicing solution. The benefits to be derived by all parties are very much a win-win for all concerned, and we are looking forward to seeing this solution fully rolled out over the coming months.”
