Simplifying Order and Supply Chain Management with Cloud-based Integrations

The Challenge

Order and supply chain management is still extremely inefficient. It often lacks automation and therefore comes with high administration costs.

Our customer needed an integration solution for simplifying and automating order and supply chain management that has been traditionally heavily relying on electronic data interchange (EDI).

Receiving and submitting orders have been troublesome for entrepreneurs and small enterprises. Our customer wanted to offer a solution that enables small players to have the same capabilities as big businesses to manage order- and supply chain processes.


The Solution

To enable connectivity between large and small enterprises, our customer used Youredi’s cloud-based Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) to connect its own system with major retailers. 

Our customer’s system sits between large enterprises and small businesses. Small businesses can now send messages to large enterprises through our customer's system and different messages types, such as invoices.

Youredi solution enables the automated transfer of messages between our customer and the retailers. Due to the varying messages types and formats our solution also takes care of the translation of the messages.


The Benefit

The solution aims to equalize the situation between small and large enterprises by digitalizing, simplifying, and automating the processes related to order and supply chain management. Thousands of companies selling products or services to large corporations will benefit from using our customer’s and Youredi's solution.

Big businesses are now able to order products from small companies more effortlessly, therefore maintaining the selection of products will not result in additional costs.

As all data transfer and translation happens in the cloud, automating invoice and order management processes is significantly lowering the overhead costs.
