AUCHAN – electronic data interchange and other related custom projects
ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE + ELECTRONIC ARCHIVING + AUTO INVOICING
The Project that gave us wings in the EDI Romanian market.
Started in France, Auchan is one of the world’s leading distribution groups, having branches in over 16 countries. In 2016, Deloitte named Auchan the world’s 11th biggest food distribution companies. Over the years, Auchan opened hundreds of hypermarkets and thousands of supermarkets all around the world.
The project with Auchan Romania was launched in 2013 and it enabled the transmission of purchase orders without the need for fax servers. Eventually, the summer of 2014 saw the transmission of receiving advices and exchanging the connected invoices.
In January 2016 Auchan Romania fully automated their order transmission process and their return document flow (return advices and return invoices, penalty invoices). In 2017 the service invoices were also exchanged, making electronic invoicing reach an all-time high 80% automation. Following the integration of flow between EDI and Auchan Romania and its suppliers, the following departments of Auchan Romania have improved their data exchange and communications: the Purchasing Department and the Logistics Department.
