About ec-bp.com

ec-bp.com  eCommerce Best Practices for the Supply Chain

ec-bp was established in 2003 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompass the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership  has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 70,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.

Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.

ec-bp.com is the forum for all those topics and more. If it is pertinent to our readers, we want to cover the topic.

Since our inception, ec-bp has been sponsored by a variety of companies involved primarily in providing services to retailers and product suppliers. ec-bp.com accepts sponsorships from organizations intent on reaching the highly focused audience served by our newsletter and web site.
