NMBS sets its sights on the future

Published:  04 May, 2010

SHROPSHIRE: The National Merchant Buying Society is offering its members a number of e-trading options. They will be showcased this year on the E-Trading stand in the entrance hall to the Society's annual Trade Exhibition.  It takes place on 12 May at the Telford International Centre.

NMBS staff will be on hand to demonstrate:

  • The new Document Retrieval System – learn how to download all your invoices into one manageable document.
  • The NMBS Report Centre – see how to access real-time information about the state of your account.
  • Electronic trading solutions for suppliers – discover how to cut costs and trade electronically with NMBS

NMBS said it is "fully committed to moving with the times and trading electronically with all of our members and suppliers, a large number of whom already receive and send EDI invoices and credits".

According to e-trading manager Sue Oliff: “Our newest feature,  the Document Retrieval System, will be of great benefit to members because it provides them with all their invoices in one download that is easily manageable and available 24/7, 52 weeks of the year.

"There is also the benefit of increased security, and members can also qualify for the loyalty rebate challenge.”
