Consciously opting for controlled data sharing in the supplychain

As a specialist in stainless steel and special alloys, we know better than anyone that quality is paramount. That is why we make conscious choices in our sales process, not opting for all the (in)conveniences of a web shop. No, we go for a digital cooperation that benefits both our business partners and ourselves. How do we do that? With EDI and SCSN!

What is EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) again?
Well, EDI is a generic term for the automatic exchange of electronic business documents, such as orders, invoices and certain messages or confirmations. This used to be a costly business, but thanks to the advent of the internet, EDI has become accessible to smaller companies as well. And the software has improved and become cheaper. Good to know, right?

A high-quality, efficient and cost-effective collaboration


A number of our customers have already decided to exchange their purchases via SCSN (Smart Connected Supplier Network). In this way, they significantly reduce the flow of documents. And that has important advantages, such as faster exchange of information, less chance of errors, less paperwork, 24/7 availability, faster turnaround time of orders and - last but not least - cost reduction. Who wouldn't want that?

But there is more! With SCSN - the data standard for the efficient exchange of information in the supply chain - we can really take the cooperation between you and us to the next level. Think optimisation of teams, integration of procedures between all involved and business partners, and ultimately a better service to the (end) user. Sounds good, right?

Several ERP systems already have capabilities for using EDI and SCSN. So contact us soon and Iris and Maarten will be happy to explain all the possibilities to you personally.
