EDITEL Journal 1/2012 - With new design and more informationen

Our fast-paced world demands constant change. In this spirit, we are proud to introduce the first issue of our newly designed EDITEL Journal. It includes a good variety of exciting articles revolving around Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and the activities of EDITEL Group, presented in a fresh and visually appealing layout.

One of these articles is dedicated to the successful launch of EDI in the Austrian sporting goods retailers industry: it took the industry just one year to define a total of seven message standards for electronic processes, ranging from purchase orders to inventory reports. The implementation is currently in full swing. The restaurant and hotel industry has also been busy: an EDI initiative involving the implementation of electronic article master data and despatch advices at companies including Sodexo and Falkensteiner has been making significant progress.

Outside Austria, companies in many different industries are optimizing their supply chains. One of them is the Czech subsidiary of the supermarket chain SPAR. The Hungarian subsidiary of the leading Russian oil corporation Lukoil is doing the same, having successfully implemented electronic invoicing (ebilling) with digital signature. In Slovakia, Rajo, a Meggle subsidiary, is a leading user of EDI: the company has implemented nine electronic business processes with 25 business partners. In this Journal, you will also learn about how complex logistics scenarios can be optimized efficiently in the long run. The pharmaceutical company Novartis and its logistics provider Rail Cargo Austria have done just that.
