EDITEL is now the EDI provider of Sodexo Germany
Following the successful EDI rollout at Sodexo Austria, Sodexo Germany has decided to follow suit and now relies on EDI services provided by EDITEL. In collaboration with the ERP software provider delegate, EDITEL will help Sodexo gradually switch its order processes at more than 400 locations to Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
The first project phase included the exchange of electronic article master data (PRICAT) including product data relevant for the EU food information regulation, orders (ORDERS) and despatch advices (DESADV) between Sodexo Germany and its suppliers. Phase two will be all about the implementation of an electronic credit memo procedure. Just like in Austria, the data transfer will be done via eXite®, the EDI platform by EDITEL.
After the highly successful project in Austria we are very pleased to be able to work with EDITEL in German as well. We are now in a position of not only optimizing our procurement of goods processes in the long term, but also of harmonizing these processes across countries. We therefore plan to connect our Swiss locations as well.

In addition to ensuring secure and traceable data exchange via eXite®, EDITEL guarantees that data will be integrated smoothly and in an automated manner into the full-service provider’s ERP system. Thanks to EDITEL’s rollout management service that includes customized assistance and support for selected Sodexo suppliers, the time-efficient onboarding of all business partners is guaranteed.
The harmonized expansion of EDI infrastructure across borders is the way to go for international corporations that would like to reap all the benefits of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). We look forward to assisting Sodexo in this project with our EDI expertise.
