SILON and integrated EDI Communication
Transition to a new EDI system
SILON’s most important EDI requirement for a new EDI system was the full integration with the ERP system Oracle JD Edwards (JDE) to ensure a smooth connection and data exchange with all business partners. The implementation process started with Ideal Automotive in the first quarter of 2018 and gradually will be expanded to include the company’s other business partners.
The solution is based on the use of the TELEDIN/EDITEL EDI service, which offers transaction, conversion and database services and enables direct interconnection with the customer’s ERP system. Provided communication standards are ODETTE EDIFACT and VDA, all of which are available through public data networks. This solution was designed for EDI Communication with Ideal Automotive and to allow for the exchange of VDA4913 (Despatch Advice) and VDA4905 (Delivery call off) messages and conversion from and to the JDE inhouse format.
EDITEL’s solution saves time and costs
With the EDI solution provided by EDITEL, SILON sets an important step for a seamless and transparent supply chain management. The automotive supplier saves time and money and increases significantly the quality and reliability of its service, which ultimately results in an increased customer satisfaction.
EDITEL CZ proposed a constructive solution for communication with our partner IDEAL Automotive. It is directly connected to our information system. In the future, we expect to connect our other business partners, where we will use the many years of experience of qualified consultants from EDITEL.
