Time savings and the reduction of error rates in production workflows as well as business processes: Aspects that are becoming increasingly important for customers in the dynamically changing environment. Fast and compact information exchange is essential for the smooth running of business processes and also saves resources elsewhere. Service center specialist thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe has optimized the exchange of data with its customers via edi and added several new functions.
With mpe edi deluxe, customers have the option of having the inspection data of their material and paper or PDF certificates transferred and stored in their individual ERP system – and this completely automatically.
“We are thus able to simplify data exchange between suppliers and customers. The elimination of manual steps also minimizes the error rate,” says Sandro Freudenberg, Sales Manager at the Stuttgart site of thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe.
Due to the automated processes, there is a high time saving and personnel resources can be used more effectively. Customers also benefit from minimizing the cost of a complaint, as information about the manufacture of the products is stored in the system. As a result, the customer’s inventory can be better selected and sorted. In addition, there are further development possibilities up to the introduction of inspection mechanisms such as a target/actual comparison of material properties.
Sustainability as an essential component of all business activities
Sustainable action is an essential factor in all activities of thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe. As part of its sustainability strategy, the parent company thyssenkrupp Materials Services has set itself the goal of operating on a climate-neutral basis by 2030.
In addition, the company also wants to accompany its customers on this path and offers green products and solutions to reduce CO2 emissions in the supply chains. Offers such as mpe edi deluxe are an important part of this. In addition to steadily increasing digitization, thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe is also contributing to environmental protection with other projects: These include the offer of a pallet return system and the use of robust plastic pallets for recycling to enable more careful use of the scarce raw material wood.
Also, customers can take advantage of recycling services as part of their scrap disposal. In this way, surplus materials are bundled for remelting and fed back into the recyclable materials cycle in a structured manner.
