Retarus Integration and Automation Ensuring competitive advantage with digital supply chains

There’s many who promise it, but we deliver it: Digitalization with immediate results. Retarus adds more efficiency to your data exchange and processes straight away. The result: workflows along your value chain become more dynamic and agile, while reliability is increased and costs are reduced. We integrate customers and suppliers of any size directly into your supply chain systems, business applications, and ecosystems. In record time. We will be happy to confirm this in writing in a service level agreement.

Integrate Partners, Reduce Costs, Leverage Growth Opportunities.

Companies and factories are facing a massive increase in automated processes over the next few years. This is also what Gartner® analysts predict in their strategy paper “Gartner Top 10 Strategic Predictions for 2021 and Beyond”. The analysts expect that by 2025, more than 20% of all products worldwide will be manufactured completely automatically. The basic prerequisite for this automation is the smooth exchange of data between machines and systems, applications, and ecosystems.

So now is the time to make sure your communications are on reliable, digital ground.

For example, whenever a quick customization is necessary or new EDI partners need to be integrated.

More Efficient Processes in All Business Areas.

From customer orders to material procurement and production, to order processing and invoicing — Retarus’ cloud-based integration and automation solutions increase efficiency across your entire value chain. In both the order-to-cash and purchase-to-pay processes.

Unburden Your IT

Be it implementing EDI, expanding or modernizing your in-house EDI system, or replacing your existing EDI solution — with Retarus’ Cloud EDI Integration, your IT has all advantages on its side. Quickly implemented and efficiently migrated. Without expense for operation, maintenance, and training. But with sufficient reserve capacity for secure and scalable operation at all times. This frees up IT resources for new projects. And time needed to successfully implement cloudification and digitalization strategies.

Better Collaboration with B and C Suppliers

Retarus WebConnect for Suppliers sends EDI orders to suppliers who do not have their own EDI system as interactive emails. This gives your suppliers direct access to a Retarus portal, where they can quickly and easily view, confirm, reject, or adjust their orders. No prior registration or login is required, yet it is absolutely secure. With a high level of acceptance among suppliers, you receive up to 75% more order confirmations and significantly reduce the amount of time needed to track outstanding order confirmations. It also eliminates the need to manually enter order confirmations, which is prone to errors.

Fewer Resources for Order Entry

We accept documents submitted by email or fax, such as handwritten order forms, on your behalf. They pass through our powerful Intelligent Document Recognition (IDR) feature, which converts unstructured data into structured, machine-readable data in any format. You can import this data directly into your backend systems for further digital processing. Your level of automation increases, typical errors seen in manual order processing are eliminated, and your costs are measurably reduced by up to 60%. All this without having to make changes to your business partners’ standard processes.

More Efficient Invoicing Processes

We manage the legally compliant sending and receiving of electronic invoices for you worldwide. We support all common ecosystems, interfaces, formats, and protocols as well as over 60 national e-invoicing standards for B2B and B2G. This helps you manage not only the invoicing processes with your customers and suppliers, but also with authorities, public administrations, and platforms such as OpenPeppol, Chorus Pro, Ariba, and more.
