Users of Tradanet, the electronic retail trading network run by GE Information Services, will be able to test its supplier links for Year 2000 compliance. Supply Chain 2000 is GE's new service, offering customers a complete duplicate of its existing Tradanet EDI network on which to test for Year 2000 code problems. Every Tuesday the duplicate system will tick over into 1 January 2000 and simulate the next two days of the new year. Users can only test links with those of their suppliers that also sign up for the programme but Brian Morgan, product marketing manager at GE, believes most Tradanet users will want to be involved in the testing, particularly as there is only a one-off fee for using the service. "It does require voluntary involvement but I suspect that the vast majority of our major users will insist this testing takes place with suppliers," he said. The service becomes available in October. Tradanet currently has 6,500 users, creating more than 16,000 trading relationships.
