The 'engine' to drive your success

Smooth collaboration and transparent processes

Automotive suppliers work with blanket orders, which are processed as call-off orders and JIT orders. Figures are kept on cumulative delivered quantities to maintain on overview of deliveries that have been made. Delivery slips, transport data, invoices and credit note procedures are exchanged via EDI.

Our solution: BE-Automotive

BE-Automotive maps all common business processes used by suppliers, including ones that involve suppliers and manufacturers as well as ones that involve various suppliers (first-, second- and third-tier). Modules for order processing, production, logistics and procurement can be used, depending on the respective requirements.

Recommendations made by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA; Verband der Automobilindustrie) lay the groundwork for exchanging data using BE-Automotive. Automotive suppliers’ special needs regarding formats used for data exchange, whether these be VDA, Odette or EDIFACT, are also taken into account. On a physical level, the partners exchanging data are connected via converters. The integrated EDI solution provides optimal support for users.

Order processing

Order processing

Smooth collaboration thanks to the integration of VDA and EDIFACT formats as well as OEM-specific processes

  • All common VDA and EDIFACT formats, as well as additional messaging formats, are processed by an integrated EDI converter. 
  • Formats required by OEMs such as VW or Mercedes are already supported; these include VDA 4984, VDA 4987 etc.
  • Non-automotive formats are also supported (ORDERS, ORDERSP).
  • OEM-specific processes such as PUS (Opel), PUO (Valeo), time slicing (Porsche), TSB (VW), pearl chain (Audi), trailer loading (MAN) and so on can be processed.
  • When it comes to outgoing goods, logistics applications guarantee automatic carrier loading in keeping with packaging specifications. Inventory reports as well as consignment stock processing, including reports of receipt and dispatch notification (manual or fully automatic), are also supported.
Carrier management

Carrier management

Account holder management keeps you informed as to where your carrier inventories are currently located.

  • A simple reconciliation is carried out at the end of each month with proof of inbound and outbound postings to ensure transparency. This allows carrier loads to be reduced to the greatest possible extent.
  • Packaging specifications for each item and customer can be stored with alternative packaging.
  • Empties are returned when a delivery slip is printed
Dispatch control
