Why EDI?


The interchange of business information and paper documents between a retail chain and its suppliers entails high costs of processing large amounts of business information and errors arising from, for instance, the ’human factor’ of document handling. In this context, implementing Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology was a logical response to the challenge of improving METRO GROUP’s business communication with suppliers. 

METRO decided to migrate to Comarch because of business opportunities related to an advanced Comarch EDI solution, which replaced the previous tool utilized by the company.


Aim of the project


METRO SYSTEMS was looking for a strategic partner who would supply a cutting-edge EDI transaction platform, trading partner management and business visibility solution. The supply goal was to achieve best-in-class service in conjunction with competitive pricing and improved functionality. Additionally, METRO expected to work with a partner who has the capability to grow the relationship and the scale to meet the dynamic nature of our business, including performing these services on a global basis.
