Nortech maybe a better path to EDI for smaller newsagent suppliers

Currently, we are installing several sites using a new EDI system using Nortech.

The problem currently the newsagency industry face is that many newsagent suppliers are too small to justify the current systems in place. So after many years, despite the hopes originally stated none of these systems has achieved anything that can be called an industry standard.

So what we have been doing is working with Nortech in an attempt to produce an alternative. It is largely but not entirely based on existing standards. It can be used by a full range of suppliers, although target markets are the small suppliers.

It is hoped that it means that most newsagents will be able to import invoices and catalogues and send return forms and stock holding reports from many suppliers.
