Royal Doulton North America Outsources Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Operations to Digital Movers

Digital Movers, a premier provider of outsourced electronic commerce services, announced today that it has successfully completed the integration of Royal Doulton's Canadian division into its Host*EDI Electronic Data Interchange Outsourcing Service which had previously managed all of Royal Doulton’s trading relationships for its United States division. Royal Doulton is a leading manufacturer of fine tableware and collectables.

Host*EDI is a complete EDI outsourcing program including mapping and translation of EDI business documents and the secure exchange of inter-company business documents with trading partners. Digital Movers provides Royal Doulton with all of the services of a complete EDI department including daily processing, tracking and archiving of electronic transactions which enables Royal Doulton to more effectively service their customers.

Royal Doulton and Digital Movers have forged a strong alliance in developing and delivering complete EDI services in the past for our United States division. Based upon the success of that program, it made complete sense for us to integrate our Canadian division into the same solution to take advantage of the natural synergies that exist, said Christopher Lymer, Information Technology Manager of Royal Doulton North America. “Digital Movers works with our trading community to insure that daily transactions are successfully integrated with our applications and that new trading partners are proactively added to our community.

We are proud to have a world-known brand such as Royal Doulton that is identified with the highest quality products in their market as a Digital Mover customer, said Ken Konikowski, president, Digital Movers. More specifically, we are extremely pleased that the success of the solution we have provided to Royal Doulton encouraged them to trust us with the remainder of their North American business. We look forward to continuing to provide them with world-class support and services and to assist in their continued growth.
