One of the North America’s leading telecommunications companies had a problem. After corporate restructuring, it needed to tell a patchwork network of legacy EDI system to take a hike—but didn’t quite know how to do it. The company needed to consolidate onto an efficient, cost-effective EDI/B2B platform, which ultimately lead it to the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (SEE BIS).
The EDI problem
The company’s three fragmented, outdated EDI/B2B landscapes were initially merged using a wide range of disparate solutions. This overly diversified environment let to redundant processes, a more than ample chunk of overhead and a problem finding experienced personnel for each individual solution.
The EDI solution
The company was attracted by SEE BIS’ robust and cohesive feature set, including comprehensive global support, extensive functionality, multiple language support, pre-built components and more. SEE BIS’ unified integration with SAP also met the company’s need for seamless data exchange on the SAP platform.
The end result
The company found SEEBURGER modernization and consolidation to be of incredible value. In fact, it saved almost 50 percent of EDI costs upon consolidating the systems on SEE BIS. Besides better security that attracted partners and suppliers, and more internal transaction message control, the company:
- Consolidated its EDI infrastructure into one data center
- Achieved a 60 percent reduction in software licensing costs
- Achieved a 30 percent reduction in VAN charges
- Cut message tracking time from hours to five minutes
