Upgrade for Windrush due to expansion

Freeway Commerce has supplied its Spectrum 3 e-commerce trading platform to Windrush Frozen Foods.

The upgraded server-based system enables Windrush to trade electronically with its customers using both EDI and AS2 technology enabling the company to trade with more customers. It can also cut costs by reducing its use of its Value Added Network (VAN).

Windrush has expanded from a turnover of pound;666,000 in 1995 to pound;23m 2005/2006, so it needs to process more invoices and orders. Spectrum 3 is a server grade solution, which sits on the network and allows better access and back-up facilities, giving the system greater resilience. The IT department at Windrush manages the web-based system more easily than the previous standalone system.

Robbie Roberts, IT manager of Windrush, commented: “Since deploying the Spectrum 3 solution and using AS2 we find we are using EDI and IBM VAN a lot less. We have been pleased with the outcome and AS2 has proved easy to use, reliable and a secure method of delivery.”
