EDI Integration for Figlmüller
All merchandise deliveries to the seven geographically dispersed locations of Figlmüller were previously done exclusively via paper despatch advices. It usually took a long time until these paper documents were available at headquarters and then manually entered into the system. This process made invoice review a time-consuming and tedious task.
Thanks to the additional transfer of electronic despatch advices (DESADV) via EDI, all merchandise-related information is now immediately sent directly to Figlmüller’s centralized system. This approach makes it much easier and faster for employees to review the invoices issued by suppliers because no manual data entry is required. Other than the one-time cross-check for master data regarding new products, there is absolutely no additional work for Figlmüller.
Thanks to EDI and the EDITEL support team, we optimized our merchandise receiving processes quickly and effortlessly. Ultimately, we end up saving a lot of time and effort. Dieter Repolusk, director of controlling.
