Do you already have a B2B/EDI system that currently handles your business processes via ISDN? Through the terminating of ISDN, automotive manufacturers and suppliers are forced to switch to OFTP2. SEEBURGER will help make your OFTP2 transition a success - from the discussion phase with partners through to operations – with the appropriate Tools and Services.

[Customer quote]

Many EDI/B2B processes are time-critical for automotive suppliers. This is particularly true for the ASN process. Here OEMs usually allow only a timeframe of up to 30 minutes. Incorrect or late EDI messages may lead to penalties, decreased supplier rating or even delisting.

This is usually the result of a responsible business unit being informed too late or not being informed at all of issues with ASN, inhibiting an adequate response. It can also happen if incoming JIT messages are stuck or missing and the responsible business unit has no transparency of what is going on.

The solution:

Quickly and easily, track and process your documents in SAP using the flexible tools of the SEEBURGER Console. The components of the solution enable users to:

  • Monitor all incoming and outgoing documents (B2B) directly in SAP
  • Immediately trigger alerts to your department in case of an issue
  • React quickly to missing messages with configurable, target monitoring
  • Quickly and easily fix all errors and EDI conversions with the correction functionality
  • Prioritize documents and control them in an user-friendly interface
