The retailer is replacing its manual system with Kewill Trade, which will exchange invoice data with its 200 suppliers as it consolidates its management processes into a single system.
The project, which began five months ago, is expected to go live with the first supplier just before Christmas, followed by another 15 to 20 suppliers in January.
The hosted application is managed from a datacentre in Manchester and runs on Windows Server 2000. Allders expects the system to reduce the cost of processing its 10,000 weekly invoices through automated price checking and line-level matching.
Mark Fabes, head of IT at Allders said, "As we continue to expand our business we need to effectively manage processes."
