Modernising Thatchers Supply Chain Management 

Utilising a system that lacked automation and required manual data entry, Thatchers needed a solution that would directly integrate their EDI and ERP to optimise their processing capabilities. That’s why Thatchers approached NetEDI to implement our cloud-based solution NeTIX. 

Thatchers are renowned worldwide by customers and industry experts alike.

Deep-rooted in tradition, the cidermaker started life at Myrtle Farm in 1904, where William John Thatcher produced the first of their signature beverages.

Fast-forward to 2021, and although still based out of their Somerset home, Thatchers have gone on to become one of the world’s favourite cider companies with an annual turnover in excess of £100m.

Requirements for EDI Integration

Thatchers wanted a EDI system that would allow them to continue to trade openly and freely with their customers without disrupting on-going transactions.

Working with large retailers such as Asda, Sainsbury’s and Tesco, it was of paramount importance that Thatchers chose an EDI provider who understood the specific demands of large retailers. Each retailer required bespoke mapping to fit their requirements, therefore it was key for NetEDI to offer a cloud-based that could transmit and translate all message types.
