Elite List Recognizes the Top Half of One Percent of Sears Holdings’ Vendor Partners
ATLANTA, GA – May 23, 2013
Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, today announced that it has been named a 2013 “Partner in Transformation” by Sears Holdings Corp. (Sears Holdings). This prestigious list recognizes the top half of one percent of Sears Holdings’ more than 30,000 vendors and suppliers worldwide. Sears Holdings selected Liaison’s Value Added Network (VAN), Liaison Exchange Network, to deliver fast, secure, and reliable transmission of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) documents across its vast supply chain.
“Liaison provided Sears Holdings with the most complete solution available for EDI VAN services, including document life-cycle visibility and tracking,” said Craig Adams, Manager, EDI Support/Development for Sears Holdings. “Liaison’s cost structure enabled Sears Holdings to reduce expenditures for EDI VAN services by 50 percent, allowing us to maintain strong relationships with our supplier partners through a seamless migration, while reducing errors, accelerating cycle times, and improving cash flow.”
Liaison’s EDI VAN offering enables large enterprises to conduct business more efficiently, securely, and cost-effectively, delivering a highly scalable solution that allows for the exchange of files across an organization’s entire partner and supplier ecosystem via a single connection to a centralized network. Enhanced collaboration features and automated tracking reduce costs and help businesses grow revenue more rapidly. Best practice encryption standards and 100 percent secure connections offer end-to-end security throughout the data flow, and strong visibility and data tracking capabilities facilitate streamlined operations and compliance.
“At Liaison, we’ve worked hard to develop a scalable, reliable, and transparent EDI VAN solution backed by a top tier customer and technical support team,” said Robert Fox, Vice President of Application Development at Liaison Technologies. “When Sears Holdings selected Liaison’s Exchange Network in 2011, we were able to complete the entire migration to our solution seamlessly within three weeks, easing the transition for their partners and rapidly delivering fast, secure transmission of EDI documents across their entire partner and supplier ecosystem. Being recognized by Sears Holdings with their Partner in Transformation award is a testament to the success of our relationship and an affirmation of our ongoing commitment and success in EDI VAN innovation.”
Sears Holdings presented the prestigious Partners in Transformation award to a select group of supplier companies that excel in supporting the transformation of Sears Holdings through innovation around customers, core retail excellence, and financial and operational discipline. The Partners in Transformation recipients were selected from nominations that were submitted by Sears Holdings’ associates responsible for purchasing decisions.
