Smaller manufacturers traditionally have either avoided EDI deployments or utilized EDI translators that fail to fully automate trading partner communications. Until 2008, tile producer Florim USA fell into the second category. The 250-employee company’s POP mailbox-based EDI solution was not integrated with Florim’s SAP system, forcing customer service staff to spend at least 30 minutes of processing time per order. Related delays in generating advance shipping notices and customer invoices frequently led to angry customers and later-than-expected customer payments.
With the need to create more supply chain efficiency by streamlining order-related message exchanges with key customers, tile manufacturer Florim looked to its SAP NetWeaver platform for answers and was able to leverage the NetWeaver technology with SEEBURGER Adapters to eliminate invoicing and ASN transmission delays that affected the company’s order-to-cash cycle and customer relationships.
