An expanding UK tech firm is to highlight the latest in disruptive business solutions at the world’s most important gathering of chief information officers and senior IT executives.

Digital supply chain specialist Transalis aims to use its being a sponsor of the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Barcelona to explore and share insight on new approaches to data management.

The Portsmouth-headquartered company already underpins billions of pounds’ worth of global trade by helping clients automate transactions and reduce the need for costly management of paper documentation and associated errors.

A leading exponent of EDI, or electronic data interchange, Transalis currently offers cloud-based applications to more than 10,000 business users across 32 countries.

The company will be the only EDI vendor exhibiting at the Barcelona event.

Among the Transalis team attending are co-founders and Joint Managing Directors Aniello Sabatino and Paul Simpson, Business Development Consultant Kieran O’Connor and Mark McGarry, Senior Account Manager.

Paul Simpson, Founding Director, said:

“This is our third Gartner event and once again it is an ideal opportunity to engage some of the biggest and most well-known business brands across the globe. We’ll also be speaking with government, financial and charitable organisations. We believe no other EDI provider is viewed in the same light due to our agile methodology, organic model and forward thinking.”

As well as EDI, the Transalis team will be discussing the emerging market use of blockchain technology, a decentralised, peer-to-peer way of sharing business documents that is set for expansion across industry verticals.

Kieran O’Connor said:

“We’re looking to raise our profile and expand our network of contacts while discussing and addressing new solutions areas on the horizon. Our message is all about helping organisations to build the supply chain of the future by overcoming challenges and achieving more efficient automation and integration.”

Thousands of delegates from across the world are expected to attend the five-day Barcelona event to gain a strategic view of emerging trends shaping business technology.

As well as its involvement in the Barcelona symposium this year and last, Transalis was a sponsor of the Gartner’s Supply Chain Executive Conference at the InterContinental, O2 London in September, 2018.

The Gartner Symposium/ITxpo event takes place at the Barcelona International Convention Centre from 4th to 8th November, 2018. Transalis has produced a mobile app to support its involvement at the symposium.
