Competent & highly effective
“The seamless transition from Delphi’s EDI infrastructure to the new SAP system and the ecosio Integration Hub, including the exact implementation of client requirements and supplier connections, was of critical importance – in spite of the very tight timeline,” explains Jürgen Probst, SAP Project Leader at FUBA Automotive GmbH. The project’s first step was connecting the FUBA production sites in Bad Salzdetfurth in Germany. The second and third steps, partially occurring at the same time, were to connect the plants in China and Mexico.
The basis for setting up the EDI functionality in FUBA‘s SAP ERP system was connecting it to the ecosio Integration Hub – the control center for all EDI needs. The connection was made by integrating the innovative ecosio API interface to network ERP systems. To achieve this, ecosio used the EPO connector, which had been developed and successfully tested with EPO Consulting.
“When changing our entire IT infrastructure, including introducing a new ERP system and EDI solution, precise implementation was very important to ensure adherence to our strict timetable. We knew this would only be possible with a competent partner – and ecosio fit the bill.”

This allows not only for the integrated sending and receipt of messages, but also for end-to-end message monitoring in the SAP user interface. “With just one connection to the ecosio Integration Hub, FUBA can meet all EDI needs and reach all business partners. Messages are converted to the target format at the ecosio Integration Hub and sent to the recipient – or the other way around,” explains Philipp Liegl, Managing Director at ecosio GmbH.
“The tried and tested EPO Connector for ecosio API was used to connect with the SAP system. This enables deep integration of the EDI functionality and monitoring in the SAP system. It also meant FUBA didn’t have to buy a SAP PI License.”
