gearsAmerica’s largest producer of turkey products takes business and technology pretty seriously. With seven plants and $2 billion in annual sales, Butterball doesn’t have time to mess around. That’s why the company decided it was time to give its legacy EDI system a last supper and adopt the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite.

Butterball discussed their experience with the migration of legacy EDI technology and the integration with SAP during a recent presentation at the SAPPHIRE ASUG Annual Conference. In short, the company has been able to execute multiple integration projects since adopting the software, streamline business processes and use SAP’s ALE integration layer to significantly reduce project development time.

Butterball’s journey started in 2010, when the company realized its EDI system wasn’t cutting it. It couldn’t handle the workload, couldn’t meet partner’s demand for complex integrations and couldn’t onboard new trading partners efficiently. The company saw a rise in EDI error rates, which put it at risk of processing and shipping delays. Something had to be done.

So Butterball turned to the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) to solve those problems and increase the value of its SAP deployment. Thanks to a 40 percent increase in customer EDI enablement, shorter rush order turnaround and more customer services, Butterball was also able to reduce costs.
