GAITHERSBURG, Md. - Global eXchange Services Inc. has announced that it is working with San Antonio, Texas-based H-E-B Grocery Company to enable more than 250 of the company's North American suppliers to trade electronically using only a Web browser. Web-based transaction services from GXS are designed to help H-E-B reduce supply chain costs and enhance customer service by enabling a greater number of its small and mid-sized suppliers to transact with the company online.
As part of H-E-B's goal of enabling its entire trading community to exchange purchase orders and invoices with the company electronically, GXS is providing suppliers with access to GXS TradeWeb. This multi-lingual service allows suppliers to use a Web browser to send and receive forms-based documents (such as purchase orders or invoices).
"We are continually looking for proven and cost effective technologies that will help all our suppliers work with us in the most effective manner," said Alan Markert, VP of e-commerce for H-E-B Grocery Company. "As we bring a larger percentage of suppliers into our online trading community using services such as GXS TradeWeb, the greater efficiency will translate to lower costs and, ultimately, lower prices for our customers."
GXS is also providing H-E-B with community enablement services in order to facilitate the rapid incorporation of small and mid-sized H-E-B suppliers into the company's electronic trading community.
