Even if you have your very own and unique business model, you may still recognize the following typical story from a SAP company that, over the years, had built, rebuilt, and customized their EDI solution. You may also – like the said company – dream of a way more efficient setup.
These are the main plot lines of their EDI story:
If you have a very complex EDI setup , then how do you turn it into a modern, user-friendly, and future-proof solution that fits your SAP solution in the best possible way?
Here's what the said company did. They invested in the EDI management platform Link, which today is the link between the company's SAP solution and the trading partners' various ERP solutions.
Link replaces, so to speak, the many "EDI branches " that used to be a part of the company's complex EDI setup. Instead, all EDI-related functionality is gathered in one solution. That means that the company's employees only need to look in one place when they need answers to questions regarding the many document exchanges.
This does not mean that the company has had to change everything that worked well in their "old" EDI solution, such as mapping. Instead, they have been able to reuse all the functionality they wanted, now just mainly incorporated into Link.
Anyone with user access can see the information they need, whether they are EDI supporters, buyers, salespeople, IT specialists, or something completely different. And above all, it is the same, correct information they are looking at, as they are all looking at data via the same EDI management platform.
"We can onboard new partners while we have them on the line."
This fact impresses many of the steel wholesaler Lemvigh-Müller A/S’s trading partners. And that's not the only reason why the company is excited about Link for SAP.
