Odoo Gold Partner much. Consulting has teamed up with the EDI integration aggregator platform Procuros and launched the first-ever Odoo-Procuros Connector. The solution allows Odoo users to connect all trade partner systems and supplier portals via a single integration.
EDI-Integration enables cost reduction of up to 60%
In order to reduce procurement and order processing costs and thus remain competitive, the digital connection of trade partners is becoming increasingly important. To achieve this and in order to successfully digitalize the end-to-end order process, a technical integration with the respective trade partner system is required.
The benefits of such an integration become quite clear when looking at the example of digital invoicing: Sending a paper or PDF invoice generates average costs of up to €11.40 for suppliers, processing on the purchasing side even up to €18.00 per invoice. In contrast, a digital invoice generates costs of ~4.30€ on the supplier side and ~6.15€ on the customer side – a savings possibility of over 60% through integration or digitization (source: e-Invoice study by Deutsche Bank, 2011).
Doing business with several trade partners means several single EDI connections to your Odoo. Not with Procuros!
Despite these significant efficiency gains, many companies are reluctant to go digital with their trade partners. This is largely due to the fact that each integration has to be implemented in complex and often costly IT projects, making it extremely cumbersome and time-consuming to build a digital trading network.
We are therefore all the more pleased to announce a newly established cooperation between Odoo Gold Partner much. Consulting and Procuros.
Connecting all your trade partners via a single interface – Odoo Connector EDI Integration with Procuros by much. Consulting
