EDI MANAGEMENT

safely. qualitative. system independent.


Holistic management of your data.

ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE (EDI)



Whether within your company or group or in your business relationships with customers, suppliers and service providers: a secure, reliable and fast exchange of information, documents and other data is vital for the success of your business because it allows you to operate proactively on fast-paced markets.

Our EDI solution will improve the quality and informational content of your data, speed up your business processes through automation and turbocharge your transmission speed. All of this contributes to an improved process transparency and a better communication with your business partners, ultimately reducing costs.

1SOLUTION-INDEPENDENT MANAGERS FOR YOUR EDI SYSTEM
We are at your side whether you operate your own EDI system, a third-party system or our EDI solution. Our specialists can take care of all of your monitoring, maintenance and management needs. Let us make sure that your EDI always runs smoothly. Individual and detailed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) provide for a continuous 24/7 support.
2CONNECTING BUSINESS PARTNERS WITH QUALIFIED TESTING
Our testing and qualification portal offers you the opportunity to automate test cycles, benefit from plausibility checks and keep an eye on your connected partners’ status. In this way, you will gain transparency across a simple process and increase the connection rate of your partners while reducing your connection costs – all thanks to our onboarding skills.
3MANUAL TROUBLESHOOTING AND ANALYSIS OF EDI PROCESSES
The foundation for the economic success of your data exchange is a far-reaching automation of your business processes while conserving resources.
4VISIBILITY OF YOUR ENTIRE SUPPLY CHAIN INCL. AN EARLY WARNING SYSTEM
Usually, a whole range of departments and partners are involved in confirmation processes from order confirmations, call-offs and delivery notes up to invoicing. Through our monitoring solution, we are making your entire supply chain more transparent – anywhere you need it. In addition to monitoring components, we can also integrate early warning functions. We are generally offering customized solutions that are tailor-made to suit your individual requirements.

We connect you to your business partners and provide consulting, implementation and optimization services for your process. Of course, this includes creating any necessary documents and guidelines.

Benefit from the all-inclusive packages of our end-to-end service portfolio, which ranges from the first point of contact to the last recipient.
6MIGRATING EXTANT EDI PROCESSES
We make sure that your business process transactions can be migrated or set up without disrupting operations, and that all connections are operational within the agreed deadline. We have standardised the design, realisation and go-live of migration projects. This allows us to hot-swap your EDI processes during regular operations. Nothing will stop your technology refresh, system upgrade or system merge!

Our experience. Use Case: Electrical Wholesale Trade.


Our client is a marketing union of electrical wholesalers and corporate group of 18 national organisations and more than 230 independent cooperating electrical wholesalers.
The union especially wanted to improve the knowledge transfer between its active members through a uniform communications structure that would include customers and business partners and provide delivery status information and other data, thus providing more transparency within all connected business processes. One key challenge was the fogginess with respect to product availability.
Another key objective, in parallel to establishing centralised IT services, was to establish a modern, EDI-based communications concept for European business processes, allowing members to access the data of a common database anywhere in the EU. Partnering with compacer, the union could develop, realise and put into operation its new B2B platform for the industry.

Our take on it.

An EDI project has different project phases, includes onboarding and the automatic connection of your customers and partners. We do not only take care of controlling tasks, but also manage the entire communication through our campaign management.

OWN POTENTIAL / PARTNER SURVEY & EVALUATION

Before you being an EDI project with compacer, we start with a potential analysis and a partner survey to be able to make informed decisions. In this first stocktaking, we check your EDI capabilities, the existing and desired formats and the quantity structure before we draft a preliminary project schedule. This will give you an initial evaluation of your project.

REGISTRATION & MAPPING

During registration, we first collect your data. Then we discuss our conversion services and the actual mappings as well as meaningful test logics (data transformation, syntax checking, business transaction monitoring, implementation of formats, cross-references, guidelines).

TECHNICAL ONBOARDING / ROLL-OUT & DEPLOYMENT

The actual integration always includes testing, where we simulate different scenarios, and qualification. The latter includes: testing the mappings, establishing communication connections, checking the correctness and completeness of business transactions. Once the deployment is successful, nothing stands in the way of your “go-live” and going into regular operation (run).
