Uses Tradexpress to speed up and supervise data exchanges
France Messagerie (formerly Presstalis) is a major player in distributing and selling press. In France, France Messagerie operates over 2,400 newspaper kiosks via its subsidiaries, Mediakiosk and Seddif. With more and more publications coming off the press, the company wanted to carry out sales surveys, better understand customers’ behaviour and manage automatic reordering to avoid shortages.
The IT department needed a system that could process and control the exchange of sales files between France Messagerie and the points of sale.
TradeXpress was chosen for reliable, flexible and upgradeable exchanges between France Messagerie and dealers. The integration platform manages file exchange between Relay and France Messagerie wholesalers and between the survey companies and France Messagerie. It tracks packages transported by the France Messagerie logistics network on behalf of customers.
With suppliers of complementary products for bookshops, France Messagerie uses EDI to receive delivery notes and to send delivery reports.
