Our story: from market demand to Trading Partner Network

At the end of the previous century, a number of companies was looking for a better way to send and receive orders and price lists. Additionally, processing order updates was also a challenge. And calling back and forth (or faxing) information was no longer practical, due to the rising popularity of online shopping.

EDI for everyone

The companies started looking at EDI, the electronic exchange of data. EDI would help to reduce the number of manual mistakes and speed up and simplify the transaction process. Except there was one ‘but’. Successfully setting up traditional EDI was only feasible for very large organisations, mainly due to its high costs and complexity. But that would soon change…

A team of experts specialising in EDI supply chain, enterprise software and distribution had a fantastic idea. Among this team were our founders Jeroen Moonen and Cor Zijlstra. They developed a service that would move the complexity of EDI to a central hub. And to realise that idea they founded Onetrail in 1999.

Now, EDI was within reach for middle-sized and smaller organizations. First in the IT & Telecom industry. With its in-depth knowledge of all trading processes, Onetrail developed an EDI solution that had no problem meeting the needs of resellers, retailers, distributors and manufacturers.

The start of the Onetrail Trading Partner Network

The solution was optimised based on the current successful Onetrail Trading Partner Network (TPN). This network offers numerous data integration possibilities for a variety of industries. Hundreds of parties have already joined our Trading Partner Network.

A grip on data logistics

A key result of this development is that organisations are increasingly connected. Which means they are more dependable on external processes and data. The collaboration between companies is a given, and nearly impossible to ignore. In order to guarantee process continuity, scalability and reliability companies need to gain a grip on their data logistics. It is the only way for them to stay relevant.

It is our mission to put companies in control of these processes, so they can fully focus on servicing their customers. The customer experience is becoming more important than price and product. Which means the success of a company depends on its ability and willingness to put the
