In a bid to launch operations in India, JLR began to source components from Indian automotive manufacturers. Voss Exotech Automotive Pvt. Ltd. was one of the many supplier partners they chose. VOSS Exotech was in the midst of implementing Microsoft Dynamics Navision (MS NAV) ERP and wanted an EDI solution that could be integrated into their ERP for their operations with JLR and other trading partners.
Voss Exotech had two main objectives: Reduce the manual entry of purchase order, invoice, and shipping document data to eliminate errors and accuracy issues, and enable the electronic transmission of ASNs (Advance shipment documents) to the JLR warehouse in the UK. After vetting several EDI providers, Voss Exotech decided to use DiCentral’s cloud-based EDI solution, due to the user-friendly platform and global customer support.
DiCentral provided a Cloud-based EDI solution for Voss Exotech Pvt. Ltd. and for the Just-in-Time manufacturer which was compliant with JLR EDI standards. DiCentral specially designed a solution that can handle Delivery Schedule Messages (DELFOR), Dispatch Advice Message (DESADV), and Just-in-Time (JIT) documents, which require replacement logic, especially considering when working with suppliers in India.
DiCentral’s Cloud-based EDI solution helps Voss Exotech deliver an automatic inbound and outbound interface with the JLR EDI system. The company is finally able to automatically view & extract firm orders from incoming documents. They can also download and print labels, PO, RFQ, can upload QA documents, and have the ability to manage Shipment Notices and DESADV information automatically. They were able to improve productivity with more accurate data, achieving 100% customer satisfaction with on-time order deliveries.
Voss Exotech Pvt. Ltd. got a customized EDI solution from DiCentral which complied proficiently with the EDIFACT standards and JLR EDI requirements as well. The next plan for Voss Exotech is to switch from their current cloud-based EDI solution to DiCentral’s B2Bi Managed Services in the coming years.
