Swedish converter LariTryck has automated its material orders, thanks to the EDI link with Herma’s self-adhesive materials division, to increase its operational efficiency.
Herma and LariTryck are handling ordering processes completely via EDI-processable messages using the C3 ERP software from theurer.com: from material ordering to the transmission of delivery information. For example, the converter can now order new self-adhesive material from Herma directly from the ordering screen of the software through the recently developed EDI interface.
‘The comprehensive integration of all functions through to Herma, our important self-adhesive material supplier, ensures substantial time savings in our company’, said Johan Ripa, managing director of LariTryck. ‘We can better focus on our core competencies, namely working closely with our customers and developing high-quality labels.’
Thanks to the precise real-time information from the software, LariTryck also increases efficiency throughout the entire company because the purchasing, goods inwards, production and accounting departments can handle all self-adhesive material orders using the software environment. Shipping details, including the IDs on rolls of self-adhesive material and exact quantities are sent directly to the converter’s ERP system.
‘Our goal is to create new benefits for our customers time and time again. We want to further improve the competitiveness of our customers with modern software, lean business processes as well as automation in administration and production’, said Andreas Bauer, managing director of theurer.com.
‘Media disruptions repeatedly occurred in the past, which cost both time and money. The new link is much more efficient and prevents the mistakes caused by the manual processing of data input’, added Ripa.
