Routing and conversion
Before ecosio could begin implementing the EDI processes, Carl Schmit Sohn GmbH‘s data and processes had to be properly prepared. “Our biggest challenge with regards to EDI processes was an internal one: creating the data and information in our SAP Business One ERP system,” reports Marie Apel from the sales department.
Now that the connection with ecosio Integration Hub is in place, data is sent to the Integration Hub in SAP format. There, ecosio converts the message to the recipient’s desired format and delivers the message. Conversely, messages to Carl Schmit are converted to their SAP format and relayed to their ERP system. The solution enables uninterrupted monitoring of every message. SFTP is used for communication between Carl Schmidt Sohn GmbH’s SAP Business One and the ecosio Integration Hub, and the respective pre-defined transmission protocol is used to forward messages from ecosio Integration Hub to the recipient.
ecosio manages the clarification of data formats and data protocols with Schmidt’s partners METRO, EDEKA, Kaufland and MARKANT, and ensures undisturbed data transfer and continuous monitoring.
Experience and competence
ecosio’s comprehensive service package was the deciding factor when Carl Schmidt Sohn GmbH chose to introduce EDI with ecosio. Oliver Schöne reports, “Routing and conversion with ecosio’s Integration Hub has brought numerous advantages. In addition to time savings thanks to the simplification and automation of processes, our paper use has also decreased significantly. Cooperating with ecosio was a great experience”. Oliver Schöne especially appreciated ecosio’s service commitment, and the team’s speed, flexibility, and competence.
