Automate your purchasing process
EDI is an automated exchange of standardised commercial data between trading partners. When you finalise a purchase order for Kloeckner in your ERP system, it is immediately sent to us and reviewed by your sales contact. Your order is then processed and a confirmation mail sent instantly.
Do you need a delivery note or invoice? No problem. As soon as your goods are sent out and documents have been created, the information is automatically recorded in your system. No more calls or emails. You will be surprised how efficient purchasing can be.
Eliminate manual processing
In the past purchasing has been a labour-intensive task. Purchase orders had to be transmitted to suppliers, confirmations and delivery notes have to be checked and invoices archived. EDI allows you to eliminate almost all of these tasks! Thanks to a two-way data exchange, commercial information can be sent from one ERP system to another within seconds. No need to perform extra checks on data as the system ensures there are no deviations. If you would nonetheless like a Kloeckner representative to take a look at your purchase order before releasing it, we are more than happy to help!
Improve data quality
“Computers don’t make mistakes, people do”. Unfortunately, this is true. Implementing EDI means all data is checked, sent and received automatically. Manual data entries are minimised and transmission errors are reduced.
Increased process transparency for trading partners
Implementing EDI will not only allow your company to automate and accelerate purchasing but also to create a standardised process. Using EDI furthermore leads to improved relationships between trading partners as all transactions become transparent.
