Carcoustics saves 50% in costs with the EDI technology from Data Interchange

January 16, 2017  |  Case study, edi, Europe

In the automotive industry, the timely delivery of the right products, at the right time, to the right place, in the right order is often mandatory. To improve communication with trading partners, Carcoustics now uses new technology from Data Interchange and thus saves around half of its costs. Just in Time (JiT) and Just in Sequence (JiS) are the magic words in automobile production.

To meet the high demands of manufacturers, suppliers must ensure smooth communication, in real time, with their their trading partners. This was not guaranteed from Carcoustics prior to Data Interchange’s involvement. “Our previous carrier was very expensive and couldn’t support the new technology, OFTP2” says Frank Mueller-Boehm, CTO and Vice President of Carcoustics Shared Services GmbH. “In addition, the response times for our requests were far too long and the scalability and the capacity no longer met our growing demand. We needed a new communications solution.”

Carcoustics, an innovative, medium-sized company, with headquarters in Leverkusen, has approximately 1,500 employees at 11 locations. It develops and manufactures acoustic and thermally-effective components for the automotive industry, as well as other sectors. Thus, their customised solutions can also be found in household appliances, plant and mechanical engineering, agricultural machinery, heating technology and air conditioning technology, as well as rail vehicles.
