Onboard new trading partners.

Costco’s vendor base is changing constantly as it finds new and unique products for its business and consumer customers. Since 2003, Costco has outsourced the entire EDI onboarding process to SPS. SPS handles everything, including the initial calls to vendors, finding the right contact to speak to, and the EDI testing process.

Vendor Onboarding

Introduce a change that impacts all trading partners.

Otis McAllister, a food distributor, partnered with SPS when a grocery retailer requested more timely Advance Ship Notices (ASNs). Now a supplier fulfilling an order can directly send the ASN to the grocery retailer. By empowering its suppliers and streamlining the transaction flow from vendors directly to grocery customers, Otis McAllister reduces costs and improves customer service.
