In 2010 M&S itself will transition its business trading account from SCM to M&S Plc – this transition will require suppliers to make the same change. This transition period will be by M&S business unit, and will span a number of months during which time you maybe required to trade with both companies; you will only be able to trade with M&S Plc using the Electronic Trading Partner solution.

M&S will ensure the smooth transition with clear and timely communications, approximately 1-2 weeks before transition, informing you of when the business unit you supply is live with the Electronic Trading Partner solution.
