Delta Mossel Transforms Operations With A Combined Solution From Descartes And Schouw

AMERSFOORT, Netherlands, Oct. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Delta Mossel, one of the largest mussel and oyster suppliers in Europe, has automated its operations with electronic communication that meets the compliance requirements of its retail customers using a combined solution from Descartes and partner, Schouw Informatisering.

The European food and beverage industry is highly standardized when it comes to the communication of order, delivery, and invoice information. An increasing number of retailers, supermarket retailers in particular, only do business with companies that handle orders and invoices using electronic data interchange (EDI). This requires suppliers, like Delta Mossel, to be EDI compliant in order to exchange the required data and business documents with its customers. As leading technology organizations serving the food retail industry, Schouw and Descartes have developed an integrated EDI solution model that can be implemented rapidly.

"We are continuously looking for new ways to innovate. The close collaboration between Descartes and Schouw allowed us to transform our operations by implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV® and SI Foodware® for enterprise resource planning (ERP) combined with Descartes' Go-secure business-to-business (B2B) connectivity service," said Carolein van de Plasse, Sales Manager at Delta Mossel. "The joint solution has enabled us to eliminate many manual procedures, such as order processing using fax and telephone. It is helping us to better service existing customers, as well as generate more business. Our new capability to deliver to the automated DC-Fresh distribution center of Delhaize, a leading grocery chain in Belgium, is just one concrete example."

"The combined solution levels the communications playing field for suppliers of all sizes to be able to meet the requirements of enterprises demanding EDI-driven communication," said Danny Cevaal, Commercial Manager at Schouw Informatisering. "Both Schouw and Descartes contributed considerable domain expertise leading to a solution that is reliable, user-friendly, and quickly delivers value."
