Epicor acquires Data Interchange to streamline supply chain strategies

Epicor has acquired Data Interchange, a UK-based provider of electronic data interchange (EDI) cloud technologies and managed services, to expand the reach of Epicor in European markets and add to the company’s portfolio of B2B integration technologies.

As companies manage increasing requirements for data integration across B2B supply chains, they are challenged in navigating the complexities of trading partner compliance, communications protocols and local language support.

Data Interchange’s B2B integration solutions will help Epicor customers streamline their supply chain strategies, automate business process and plan for changing business needs. This includes support for European market protocols and standards.

Steve Murphy, CEO at Epicor, said: “The future of EDI is about creating more flexible and transparent supply chains that can seamlessly accommodate a wide range of inputs while ensuring automated and controllable outcomes. The Data Interchange acquisition gives Epicor customers an even more powerful set of cloud-based EDI solutions to streamline supply chain collaboration, simplify processes, and make data-driven decisions to identify trends and opportunities.”

Andrew Filby, CEO at Data Interchange, added: “Our goal at Data Interchange has always been to streamline the way EDI is delivered and presented to our customers and partners. By joining with Epicor, we’re extending our mission to help companies drive positive business outcomes by simplifying every stage of their EDI journey.”
