Henderson Group completes electronic trading portfolio

By Retail Technology | Friday October 4 2013

Convenience store supplier selects supply chain portal to support electronic trading environment and handle hundreds of thousands of invoices annually

The Henderson Group has signed a multi-year agreement to use the Atlas Fusion supply chain portal from business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce provider, Atlas Products International.
 
The Henderson Group, owner of the SPAR, EUROSPAR, ViVO, ViVOXtra and ViVO Essentials franchises in Northern Ireland, has been distributing food and grocery-related products to the convenience retail sector for over 100 years. It is now the largest operator of its kind in the country, supplying over 400 stores.
 
Atlas Fusion will complement and complete the Henderson Group’s existing electronic trading environment, helping to deal with more than 300,000 invoices submitted by suppliers each year. Atlas worked in conjunction with Paul Kelly of Kelly Solutions to secure this new customer win.

Cloud-based invoice clearing house
 
Fusion’s cloud-based functionality will deliver cost savings and minimises carbon footprint by automating labour intensive tasks and removing the potential for human error. A clearing house for orders and invoices, Fusion enables trading partners to deal with problems such as invoice mismatches in a collaborative space on the web, accessible to buyer and supplier alike.
 
Jack Regan, Henderson Group finance manager, said: “We recognised the need for a supply chain portal to complete our electronic trading environment and once we had made that decision we knew that we wanted to work with Atlas to help us to design and implement the solution. We have been very impressed by their approach and the quality of their technology and we look forward to working together to achieve the projected cost and efficiency benefits.”
 
This contract win also further increases the Atlas footprint with the SPAR brand, where it already works with SPAR major operators in Ireland and the UK.
