"We wanted to expand, but in order to do that we needed an automated EDI system. XEDI provide us with the streamlined process we were looking for."

The Challenge

As Tasty is a large restaurant operator, processing thousands of orders a year, it was vulnerable to errors. Instances of restaurants receiving incorrect produce were proving both inconvenient and costly.

It became critically important for Tasty to automate their ordering and invoicing processes, drastically improving accuracy and efficiency.

The Solution

Tasty use a cobmination of Comtrex and Sage solutions, therefore, they took advantage of XEDI’s integration capabilities. Merging multiple ERP data streams, XEDI were well placed to create a system that incorporated Tasty’s existing back office systems.

Tasty’s trading brands and their restaurants now notify Comtrex when they need to re-stock. Comtrex then creates an order which is processed through XEDI’s system and sent to Sage, which then generates an invoice to Tasty.

The Result

Tasty’s requirements were quite complicated in comparison to XEDI’s other clients, as Tasty’s customers are both their own restaurants and the members of the public.

XEDI were able to design an implement an enterprise system which fully satisfied Tasty’s order process requirements.

XEDI provides Tasty with a centralised streamlined process, which in turn, saves Tasty manual administration time. As a result, orders and invoices are processed accurately and automatically.
