Canadian Automotive Provider Expands Manufacturing into US by Partnering with DiCentral’s Cloud-based Automotive/Release EDI Solution
Houston – January 26, 2018 DiCentral, a leading global provider of B2Bi Managed Services, today announced its partnership with SAP to provide DBG Automotive with a cloud-based automotive release EDI solution for S/4 HANA. DBG Automotive, a Canadian provider of custom metal products to the automotive, heavy truck, agriculture and commercial industries, relied on DiCentral to deliver the SAP S/4 HANA integration in a tight four-month go-live timeframe to streamline its manufacturing and financial functions.
DiCentral’s EDI integration to SAP S/4 HANA was the first of its kind in the automotive industry, and enabled DBG Automotive to scale to a multi-plant environment. The combined solution delivered a high return on investment under tight deadlines with unmatched issue resolution.
“With the implementation of a SAP S/4 HANA and DiCentral’s EDI translator solution, DBG Automotive gains a seamless integrated solution with improved levels of supply chain visibility”, said Julian Waynewright, DBG Automotive’s Information Technology Manager. “We also gain an intuitive EDI solution that’s more cost-effective to manage.”
DBG Automotive leaned on SAP’s formidable partnership with DiCentral to provide EDI translation, mapping and integration to SAP S/4 HANA.
