AS 400 in the context of the management of its data and its business processes.. Today Bidfood continues to use this solution but within its organization, it has also set up the EBX solution, which sends and communicates the data with the previously installed solution (AS 400) which, in order to drive change, will not be de-commissioned in the near future.

During this project at our Bidfood customer we were able to work on two issues:

  • How to set up a repository that would contain all products and references sold with business processes and interactions?
  • How can the organizational repository at Bidfood be incorporated – i.e. incorporation of the subsidiaries and the specificities of each?

Solution

In order to meet the expectations of our client, we managed the implementation of a product and organizational repository. Bidfood is set up as one of numerous subsidiaries and therefore wanted them all to have the same system for their products to be properly registered and centralized.
