Efficient and secure processes require an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). At REWE Group, such processes are the prerequisite for a customer relationship. Correct article master data that is synchronised electronically between the suppliers and the retailers via the WS3 master data pool forms the basis for the fully automated procedure.
International standards for identification (e.g. EAN, NVE and EPC) enable the identification of articles and logistical units.
The exchange of electronic business documents is adapted to suit the flow of goods and is based on the international standards (EANCOM) and the application recommendations agreed between the EDI-AK retailers and GS1.
