One connection from your ERP system to the SPOT Visibility & Collaboration Platform is enough to enable easy and fast connectivity to your business partners using standard APIs.
We offer a range of standardized data exchange services, from traditional EDI to RESTful APIs, to fully integrate all processes and parties along your supply chain.
Many EDI implementations rely on FTP (File Transmission Protocol) and batch operations. This makes errors and processing delays difficult to correct, which can result in additional costs.
API (Application Programming Interface) is the modern version of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). Although API connections serve the same purpose as EDI connections, they are built on newer technology like JSON (Java Script Object Notation) and XML that makes them easier to set up and maintain.
It is often difficult for organizations to identify optimization potentials in their own processes, since they have been dealing with them for many years. Sometimes it can be helpful to bring in an expert who challenges old habits and questions the way things are currently done.
Project documentation and management are essential for successful implementation. As partners, we support you throughout each project phase from initiation and planning to roll-out and execution. A team of experienced and certified project managers provides support whenever you need it and ensures that projects are executed according to your schedule, budget and objectives.
Projects without a proper strategy for training and roll-out are a waste of your time, money and resources. Likewise, the right instruments need to be implemented to ensure sustainable usage. We take the current knowledge levels within your organization into account and use blended learning methods to optimize knowledge transfer during the training and roll-out phase.
It is important to strive for continuous improvement in your running processes and applications to stay competitive in today's challenging business environment. We support and guide your continuous improvement process with regular business meetings where we can spot obstacles and find the right solutions to prevent them in future.
