Comarch EDI at Kompania Piwowarska

Kompania Piwowarska (KP) operates three breweries with long histories: Tyskie Browary Książęce (founded in 1629), Dojlidy Brewery in Białystok (1768), and Lech Browary Wielkopolski in Poznań (1895). It is these breweries that brew the beer that is most willingly selected by Poles, for instance: Żubr, Tyskie, Lech, Książęce, Dębowe and Redds. Since its establishment, Kompania Piwowarska has been launching products that change the Polish market. The Company is known not only for its high beer quality, but also for its responsible way of doing business.

Business challenge

In the scale of such enterprise as Kompania Piwowarska, exchange of commercial documents may be very time consuming. Management has realised very well that a company cooperating with all the major distribution networks in Poland may gain a lot as a result of optimising its processes related to workflow. Although the cost of printing and sending one document is no more than a few zlotys, when this amount is multiplied by tens of thousands of documents it becomes very significant. 

Kompania Piwowarska has decided to take a radical step – to give up on a majority of paper documents, including all documents printed via traditional channels. The Company is the first enterprise in the brewing industry to implement an EDI system on such a scale. Considering the environmental aspects – which are part of KP’s focus – the implementation of electronic data interchange was just a matter of time. The next step was to select an appropriate provider.

 

Solution

The EDI that Comarch offered met all the requirements of KP. With its high capacity (99.8% of documents processed in less than 30 seconds), 50,000 users in 40 countries and connections with 450 commercial networks, it allowed all the detailed requirements specified in the extensive implementation strategy of the solution to be met. Relying on Comarch’s experience in EDI systems, Kompania Piwowarska now interchanging data with 17 leading retail networks in Poland.
