Elliott Electric Supply Partners with IDEA Exchange Managed Services 

Elliott Electric Supply

April 20, 2023

The Industry Data Exchange Association, Inc. (IDEA) announces that Elliott Electric Supply, a distributor of electrical and industrial automation supplies, has selected IDEA Exchange Managed Services to streamline and enhance its Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) operations.

Today, manufacturers and distributors such as Elliott face EDI staffing challenges. Fewer job seekers are exploring careers in EDI management, and the number of training programs has also dwindled. As a result, outsourcing EDI management continues to grow in popularity as companies look to save time and money by automating manual supply chain processes.

“IDEA is endorsed by the electrical industry and has well-established relationships with the manufacturers and partner network critical to our success. It only made sense to look at the company’s managed services offering first,” says Phil Hale, Chief Information Officer of Elliott Electric Supply. Hale continues, “However, we chose IDEA Managed Services because the solution they presented met our specific needs. It was not a one-size-fits-all approach—IDEA tailored their services around our business and what we wanted to accomplish—and they did so within our budget guidelines.”

The benefits for Elliott Electric Supply

The expanded partnership with IDEA will give Elliott:

  • Proactive monitoring of EDI and digital integrations
  • Regular software and security updates
  • Trading partner on-boarding and EDI mapping
  • Expert, responsive support
