Detailresult Group streamlines their critical electronic communication to increase productivity and reduce costs

Detailresult Group, a leading retail conglomerate in the Netherlands, has outsourced its B2B messaging and archiving operations to Descartes to increase productivity and reduce costs. Detailresult relies on an ecosystem of over one thousand retail suppliers to serve its 188 stores in the Netherlands, comprised of DekaMarkt and Dirk supermarkets. Detailresult Group is a professional, cost-conscious and ethical with over 19,000 employees contributing to the growing success of the business.

Why Descartes?

With a complex network of suppliers, warehouses and stores, Detailresult Group wanted to streamline their critical electronic communication in order to allow them to focus on running and growing their business. "Managing the flow of goods and related data between our suppliers, our warehouses and our stores is complex. Given B2B messaging is not our core business, we sought to outsource this important function to the connectivity experts at Descartes," said Maurice van der Leeden, Manager Applications at Detailresult Group. “Descartes' cloud-based Messaging Gateway and Archiving Services help us to better manage and monitor the flow of electronic commercial and logistics documents across our supplier base, regardless of their size and level of IT sophistication."

B2B connectivity and Real-Time Supply Chain Visibility

Descartes' cloud-based Messaging Gateway and Archiving Services leverage Descartes' Global Logistics Network (GLN), the standard for multimodal, inter-enterprise electronic data and document exchange. Robust message translation, communication, and trading partner enablement capabilities help make B2B connectivity and collaboration for customers, like Detailresult, more efficient, while providing real-time supply chain visibility and supporting compliance with electronic archiving regulations.

Detailresult has successfully grown by building and acquiring some of the most well-known and innovative retail outlets in the Dutch market. By partnering with Descartes for their electronic communication needs, Detailresult can continue to focus on running and growing their business.
