documentation with its suppliers. CCV's offer have thus won in the

competition of other providers and softwarehouses, approached by OBI CZ.


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.
