A leader in automotive logistics with more than half a century of experience and active in more than 26 countries worldwide, Groupe CAT has renewed its trust in Axway, a market leader in governing the flow of data, to improve the schedule and delivery of finished vehicles, motorcycles and spare parts from leading international manufacturers to distribution centers and dealerships.
As a logistics specialist, Groupe CAT depends on its B2B and electronic data interchange (EDI) systems to schedule and deliver its merchandise. With a changing EDI landscape, Groupe CAT decided to modernize its legacy systems with a gradual and secure migration to a new platform in order to gain new customers and meet demands of its current customers. Groupe CAT operates in an environment in which constant flowing communication is critical; therefore every message relating to a customer order is crucial and time sensitive.
By implementing Axway B2Bi, part of Axway 5 Suite, Groupe CAT has been able to take advantage of advanced integration technologies to adapt to present and future requirements of their customers, and embrace the digital business era. As a result of Axway B2Bi implementation, Groupe CAT has enhanced customer and partner service and improved order completion times, while ensuring end-to-end data flow traceability.
The innovative approach to governing the flow of data enabled by Axway 5 Suite helped Groupe CAT establish a flexible and integrated infrastructure. With Axway 5 Suite, Groupe CAT is able to better manage its distribution operations and improve traceability of data through continuous visibility into data using configured dashboards. Groupe CAT is assured that it receives all messages, and is able to respond quickly to customer demands.
"Our primary goal was to establish a central node for all our communications, based on Axway 5 Suite," said Radouane Brigui, IT architect and integration manager, Groupe CAT. "Previously we had a heterogeneous system with a variety of communication tools. With the Axway 5 Suite, we can acquire and integrate other data flows and have a holistic real time view of our data flow governance."
"Our mission is to help customers comprehensively manage and govern data flows inside and outside of the organization, while ensuring the speed, accuracy and operational efficiency that today’s business landscape demands," said Dean Hidalgo, executive vice president, global marketing, Axway.
