Seeburger enables EDI communication for Omega Pharma
EDI outsourcing solution requires no investments in hardware or expertise
In just ten years time, Omega Pharma, a specialist provider of over-the-counter drugs and healthcare products, has transformed itself from a local Belgian organisation into a global company with operations in 35 countries. In 2012, Omega Pharma acquired 54 European over-the-counter brands from GlaxoSmithKline. This resulted in its customer base expanding with leading retailers such as, Macro B.V. and Albert Heijn. However, these retail organisations exchange data in EDI format. EDI is a digital standard for sharing files including invoices, orders and order confirmations. Omega Pharma had to use the same standard to be able to communicate with these customers. Consequently, Omega Pharma initiated a search for a partner with the right knowledge and skills to convert huge volumes of data into EDI format in the space of just three months. It found the perfect partner in Seeburger.
