Transparency and efficiency for full integration

The automotive sector is one of the industries with most experience in the field of electronic data interchange. The rise of working systems such as JIT (Just in Time) calls for systems enabling rapid integration of all companies involved in the supply chain, from the largest and most experienced top level suppliers to a growing number of companies located in emerging countries with quite different technological capabilities.

In this context, different ways of working have developed between manufacturers and first and second level suppliers, with a common denominator in the need to exchange electronic information permanently on key issues such as stock inventory levels in the various warehouses, receipt of goods notices, or engineering specifications using CAD/CAM.

EDICOM has extensive experience as a technology partner to some of the major automotive companies. Our solutions and services ensure clear communication and seamless connectivity with any sector partner. Independently of particular data structure features or specific communication protocols such as OFTP and OFTP2.
