Faster vendor enablement, fewer headaches.

We specialize in ensuring your trading partner community meets your business requirements. The SPS Commerce Community service takes the vendor enablement process off your hands and makes rolling out your changes fast, painless and cost-effective.

Our proven, best-practice approach maximizes adoption.

Your dedicated program team will guide you through each step of the Community process to optimize adoption across your trading partners. We run more than 700 vendor enablement programs each year, here’s a sampling of how we’ve helped retailers, distributors and grocers.

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

Drive true adoption from 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.
