Wallgreens is phasing out SupplierNet

Walgreens announced in their March newsletter that they are rolling out their SAP implementation to the Distribution Center (DC) level, and will be retiring SupplierNet EDI portal beginning April 2018.  What this means is that all Walgreens vendors are required to use EDI to exchange electronic business data with Walgreens.Walgreens, along with other major retailers worldwide including Walmart, Costco and Hudson’s Bay, utilize EDI to manage a massive amount of business data that they exchange with their suppliers and trading partners. In a typical setting, suppliers who wish to do business with these major retailers are being required to become EDI-compliant to enable them to receive electronic purchase orders and send electronic shipment notices and invoices.

Tangentia’s Tangentia Gateway solution is a web-based EDI solution offering that has EDI connectivity with more than 2000+ trading partner worldwide, making it one door for many opportunities to quickly start doing business with some of the world’s largest retailers.
