What are electronic processeses?
Example: ORDER
No manual typewriting-> Electronic data interchange (EDI)
Folie 3
Market watch
• All big companies (METRO, OBI, Daimler and more) force their suppliers to
establish electronic processes due to cost reduction
• Suppliers are in the need of serving these requirements (if they want or
not)
Buy-Side
Production
Sell-Side
Volume
Folie 4
Potentials - Costs
• Personel costs
 Type writing (i.e. type in orders)
 Handling (i.e. print invoice,
envelope, etc.)
• Freights
• Prices – services needn‘t to be
free of charge
• Additional costs charged by the
buyer (punishment)
Volume is important!
Folie 5
Potentials - Quality
• Fast
• No manual type writing mismatch
• Trace / Protocol
• Automatic checks
 Completeness (all required fields)
 Duplicates
• Reports / Statistics
• Security
Electronic processes increase quality
Folie 6
Strategic view on EDI
• EDI is getting more and more important
• EDI is a service, not a naturalness
• EDI needs own resources, employees have to care about it (Master data
management, Monitoring)
• EDI shows up weaknesses in own processes, own business gets
transparent to the customer!
• Benefit yourself from EDI: Do credit memo procedure with customers,
integrate own suppliers
• Honour EDI in commercial negotiations: i.e. discounts
Folie 7
Strategies and goals of EDI
• Integration of the own IT-systems for exchange of data with customers,
suppliers, portals, manufacturers and partners
• Wish for independency
• Consulting and services also for your partners
• Flexible connections to different systems and data formats
• Cost reduction through efficient business flows
• Security / Quality
• Push from customers / services for customers
• Optimize own procurement
EDI causes logistic and technical challenges
