Retailer to Increase Visibility to In-Transit Inventory and Streamline Receiving

Minneapolis, MN, December 04, 2007 --( SPS Commerce, a leading trading partner integration center offering fully outsourced Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and Catalog functions, announced today that The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) has selected SPS Commerce’s outsourced vendor enablement service. SPS’ enablement program will expand the number of transactions electronically exchanged between NEXCOM and its EDI-enabled vendors, who represent 83 percent of NEXCOM’s volume. With SPS’ assistance, NEXCOM’s vendors will be adding the advance ship notice (ASN) and bar code labels by year-end to offer visibility to in-transit inventory and streamline receiving at NEXCOM’s distribution centers and stores. The enablement program was launched on June 14, 2007, with a webcast to NEXCOM’s vendors announcing the program details.

This program is the next step in NEXCOM’s supply chain strategy. By integrating a growing number of business transactions with its vendors, NEXCOM can experience efficiencies throughout the supply chain, and be prepared for its Transportation Management System (TMS) implementation. NEXCOM has 328 retail locations and 13 distribution centers worldwide. The retailer offers more than 200k items including hard-lines, consumables, softlines and services for authorized patrons through its retail stores.
