Carpenter Sales Enlists the Help of B2BGateway to Purchase and Distribute Major Brands Such as Jack Link’s and American Licorice

Boston, MA, March 23, 2012 --( Carpenter Sales, an Alabama-based commodity brokerage firm, recruits global EDI leader B2BGateway to transmit documents such as invoices and purchase orders with major vendors. Even with Carpenter Sales’ unique data integration requirements, B2BGateway was able to step in and streamline the document flow to and from vendors such as Jack Link’s and American Licorice.

The family run business, established in 1975 by James Carpenter, processes orders for manufacturers such as Jack Link’s Beef Jerky and American Licorice Sour Punch and sells them to Alabama Distributors. “It just works,” says Vice President, Johnny Massey. “The previous company we used always had an issue, from lost orders to system failures. EDI isn’t flashy, you just want it to work and do the job consistently.”

With more than 15 years of experience as a computer programmer, Massey is well aware of the intricacies of mapping and various file formats. “I called and spoke to Louisa [Director of Marketing & Sales] at B2BGateway and we hit it off right away. She told me everything I wanted to hear and offered us the stability we needed. And now that it’s in place, we don’t have any issues.”

With the help of their dedicated Support Engineer, Vinnie Cordone, Carpenter Sales gets answers to all of their unique requests 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
