The Neiman Marcus Group
A global leader in luxury retail, the Neiman Marcus Group (NMG) operates more than 70 stores under multiple banners, encompassing a footprint of over 5 million square feet of floorspace. NMG’s operations are supported by a complex international supply chain and thousands of suppliers worldwide.
Before working with InterTrade, NMG was handling Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) processes internally. This required significant IT resources and diverted focus away from core activities. As well, it was difficult to onboard suppliers who were not already EDI-compliant, limiting NMG’s ability to quickly source products from new suppliers and delaying time to market.
NMG needed an external EDI provider that could deliver tailored solutions and manage all EDI transactions to free up internal teams for higher-priority initiatives. Specifically, NMG was seeking to automate processes to reduce costs as much as possible, while making it easy to onboard new partners who were not yet EDI compliant.
