Delta Mossel automates operations with solution from Descartes and Schouw
Nov 23, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Descartes Systems Group Inc., a provider of federated network and global logistics technology solutions, has announced that Delta Mossel, a mussel and oyster supplier, has automated its operations with electronic communication that meets the compliance requirements of its retail customers using a combined solution from Descartes and partner, Schouw Informatisering.
The European food and beverage industry is standardized when it comes to the communication of order, delivery, and invoice information. An increasing number of retailers, supermarket retailers in particular, only do business with companies that handle orders and invoices using electronic data interchange (EDI).
This requires suppliers, like Delta Mossel, to be EDI compliant in order to exchange the required data and business documents with its customers. As technology organizations serving the food retail industry, Schouw and Descartes have developed an integrated EDI solution model that can soon be implemented.
"We are continuously looking for new ways to innovate. The close collaboration between Descartes and Schouw allowed us to transform our operations by implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV and SI Foodware for enterprise resource planning (ERP) combined with Descartes's Go-secure business-to-business (B2B) connectivity service," said Carolein van de Plasse, Sales Manager at Delta Mossel.
"The joint solution has enabled us to eliminate many manual procedures, such as order processing using fax and telephone. It is helping us to better service existing customers, as well as generate more business. Our new capability to deliver to the automated DC-Fresh distribution center of Delhaize, a leading grocery chain in Belgium, is just one concrete example."
