Groclin Group

Introduction

GROCLIN S.A. is one of the leading manufacturers of power supply systems and the seats for automotive industry. Their clients include many of the biggest names in the automotive sector - VW, Volvo, MAN, Scania, Renault, BMW ,Nissan plus such giants as ABB, Alstom and Siemens, Vestas and Bombardier. Groclin S.A. had been using an older edition of ODEX Professional from 1999 to connect with a couple of trading partners. The application is still working but the problem was that they were not able to connect more trade partners. GROCLIN S.A. urgently needed a fast solution to meet their requirements.

The Data Interchange Solution

The first step was to update their edition of ODEX Enterprise and to create the interface in the format of their ERP system. Next we carried out over a dozen mappings for their 8 trade partners. The next step involved the migration from their Data Base Anysql to MSSQL. Then we had to redirect the whole communication to DINET and we also installed the ENGDAT module to integrate the CAD communication with GM with their technical department.

The Benefits

In the case of GROCLIN S.A. the modifications in their ERP system were not necessary. We connected all their trade partners by means of DINET.
GROCLIN S.A. was able to eliminate all the connections via ISDN and GXS, which was extremely cost efficient for the company.
