The implementation of the Electronic Data Interchange at Metro Cash&Carry Ukraine

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 data and errors arising from, for instance, the ’human factor’ of document handling. In this case, the implementation of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) was a logical way to improve business communication between the METRO GROUP and its suppliers.

METRO decided to migrate to the Comarch solutions because of business opportunities related to an advanced Comarch B2B Network 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 for managing business partners and transferring the business information. 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 improve the relationship and the scale to meet the dynamic nature of their business, including performing these services on a global basis.
