MINNEAPOLIS, MN and MANCHESTER, England — HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, announced Wednesday that Office Depot has selected the Atlas Products network-based supplier collaboration platform for its European trading operations. Office Depot is a global provider of products, services and solutions for the workplace serving consumers through its over 2,000 retail locations, e-commerce websites and a business-to-business sales channel.
The Atlas supplier enablement network provides Office Depot with an electronic platform for collaboration and commerce with over 4,000 suppliers of goods-for-resale products spanning eight countries and seven languages. The solution facilitates product catalog and pricing synchronization, electronic invoicing, and enablement of automated transactions through the entire purchase-to-pay process. The Atlas network supports European business-to-business standards, multiple currencies and value-added tax compliance. In addition to providing the network-based technology platform, HighJump Software is delivering supplier on-boarding and enablement programs.
“We are delighted that Office Depot has chosen the Atlas network to support its supplier collaboration program,” said Allan W. Gray, managing director of Atlas Products International, a HighJump Software company. “Our unique platform with error detection algorithms allows retailers like Office Depot to streamline direct-procurement processes and reduce unnecessary costs associated with inaccurate invoices, orders and product catalogs.”
