Electronic dispatch of invoices via EDI
Invoice data is transferred directly to us from our suppliers’ ERP systems on the platforms of our service providers SAP or Elemica. In contrast to a conventional EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) procedure, each data record is furnished with a qualified electronic signature. This means it is no longer necessary to create a paper-based invoice.
We provide our suppliers with various channels, enabling them to benefit from the advantages of eBilling as quickly as possible. The aim is to use our suppliers’ existing structures and thereby keep costs of adjustment and implementation as low as possible for both parties. Any investment made can be quickly redeemed through saving effects.
Our raw materials suppliers generally prefer connections via Elemica. Elemica is a platform for the integration of business processes, which is designed for the efficient and strictly confidential transfer of business data at high and medium transaction levels. Further information on Elemica is available in the E-Business sector.
Connection through our second service provider SAP is recommended for suppliers of services and technical materials. The large B2B corporate network and SAP "eInvoicing for compliance on demand" is capable of more than converting: With paper-based formats into electronic invoices: this solution also allows you to send and receive digitally signed, legally-compliant invoices in the correct format.
We would gladly assess the use of established roaming connections for all suppliers which have already selected another provider.
