which has been using EDI communication, even in the Czech Republic for
several years, has been increasing its effort to connect to all its
suppliers electronically since 2005," said the chief of invoice control Radka Havleová
from OBI Czech Republic. In the first phase of the implementation,
individual suppliers were connected to the ordering system, both
through classic EDI (EDIFACT/EANCOM) and through a web portal. The next
of OBI's priorities in the field of EDI communication was electronic
invoicing. "Since the initial cooperation with one of the domestic
suppliers on this project had not yielded desired results, in 2008 we
approached other companies that supply similar solutions." said Havleová. CCV Information systems then won the selecting procedure. "Amongst
the main reasons we have decided to cooperate with CCV was previous
good experience with CCV connecting its older clients with the
traditional EDI communication in OBI. Furthermore we have also
considered the application of modern technological approach, experience
of CCV with domestic EDI environment and other similar projects - last
but not least the transparency and explicitness of contract conditions
together with provided guarantees. One of CCV's greatest advantages was
their reasonable price offer to all business partners of OBI."
explained Havleová the result of the selcting procedure.
of the project will be cooperation with suppliers that approach us and
that have previously not yet communicated with OBI or simply recieve
orders. We will connect those to the EDI communication through the
ORION web service, provided by CCV as a part of one of their
supplemetary EDI services.
