Exchange Article Data in a Snap
An ERP implementation followed by a successful article data exchange project. This combination of initiatives helped the zinc manufacturer reinvigorate the relationship with its customers, and enabled it to automatically exchange correct article data with customers in a snap.
A request from three of the principal wholesale partners to deliver article master data electronically using EDIFACT came almost right after the completion of the implementation. “The Type2Solutions framework, with the Migration Platform and the Data Quality Dashboard, turned out to be the ideal combination to get a grip on our article master data,” says Roel Frissen, Manager Operations.
Maintaining Data Quality
The manufacturing location in Budel Dorplein is certainly not the most current facility, but Frissen is convinced that it can measure up to its competition using more recent machinery because of its state-of-the-art manufacturing process monitoring and its commitment to quality.
“The foundation must always be solid, and at NedZink, it is. We are ready for flexible data exchange of all article-related and invoice data. We also have managed to leave the beaten path by coaxing our staff to keep their records digitally. It is the only way to ensure a quick response to customer requests. It is also the best way to make service at least as important as price.” The Data Quality Dashboard plays an important role in controlling the processes: “The ERP system carries out quite a few checks, but that is far from sufficient.”
“We are most certainly pleased by the display of expertise and know-how by Type2Solutions. While many IT projects tend to be tedious, the data management project here was really painless. The migration platform was set up in very little time and enables us to analyze the situation at a moment’s notice. Thanks to the involvement and proactivity of Type2Solutions, we have gained back the control and understanding of our business. The data makes sense again, which provides clarity, relief and structure.”
It is now only a matter of upholding the discipline in data maintenance, says the Manager Operations, “so bring on those customer requirements and electronic data interchange requests, because we are ready for them!”
