Kathrein Automotive is able to connect new partners to its EDI system by choosing Fujitsu as its new provider for EDI hosting and application management

"The main reason we chose to switch to Fujitsu was the fact that it could offer us both a good price and excellent service."

Dustin Neunast IT System Administrator, Kathrein Automotive

Since migrating to Fujitsu, Kathrein Automotive has been able to connect new partners to its EDI system in just a few days, saving money.

Customer

Kathrein Automotive is a leading global provider of automotive antenna systems. The two German sites within the Kathrein Group enable the company to offer a local presence, German engineering expertise and a high degree of automation. Its production site in Portugal offers attractive manufacturing costs for Europe and is also a logistically useful access point to the Eurozone and beyond. Its factory in China serves both the global and local markets with high-quality products. The company also runs additional production facilities in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Tlaxcala, Mexico.

Challenge

Kathrein Automotive felt that it was taking too long to connect new partners to its EDI system. The company wanted to find a new hosting and application management provider that would enable its partners to gain fast access to the automated data exchange.

Solution

Kathrein Automotive chose Fujitsu as its new provider for EDI hosting and application management. The migration was carried out partner-by-partner. This retained the mappings for each individual entity. All adjustments to Business Integration Suite 6 by Seeburger are now carried out by Fujitsu.

Benefit

  • The time taken to connect new partners has been reduced from months to days
  • The significantly lower error rate for EDI messages has saved the company money
  • Fujitsu responds very quickly to queries
