Superior Industries International
Centralize global electronic data interchange

 

Automotive / Cast Aluminum Wheels

 

A Successful Business Outcome for Our Customer

Superior Industries International operates five manufacturing facilities, employing 3,300 people in the United States and Mexico and producing aluminum wheels for the major vehicle platforms of the world’s leading automobile and light truck manufacturers. Superior partnered with Trubquity to centralize global electronic data interchange as their business rapidly grew.

 

With TRUedx™, Superior could completely centralize its electronic data interchange and enterprise resource planning systems, allowing the company to standardize data communications between its manufacturing facilities, automate key processes between trading partners and refocus on core business functions like shipping, receiving and purchasing.

 

How We Worked with Our Customer to Achieve this Result

 

Problem addressed:

Superior was in need of an electronic data interchange (EDI) solution that would help them unify data exchange protocols and processes across their manufacturing organization. They also needed to improve collaboration between their facilities and reduce the amount of time needed to execute data exchange transactions and reduce their costs.

Drivers for change:

Trubiquity teamed with Superior to implement TRUedx to assist in unifying their data exchange protocols and processes. By implementing this Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based solution, Superior would realize stronger collaboration between their locations — also, time and cost to execute these data exchange transactions would be greatly reduced.

 

We Can Do This for You

Superior Industries International selected TRUedx, Trubiquity’s world-class B2B electronic data interchange platform. In addition to implementing the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based TRUedx system, Superior also enjoyed the extensive ERP integration experience and 24/7/365 technical support that Trubiquity’s professional services team delivers with each implementation. TRUedx provided Superior with the visibility to transmit and track data more collaboratively and efficiently than ever before.

 

Trubiquity assigned a full-time dedicated senior business and technical consultant to review Superior’s data workflow and business requirements. This strategic analysis identified new opportunities to exceed customer expectations and created implementation solutions to help pursue these opportunities through TRUedx and QAD integration gateway applications. To help make the TRUedx integration process run smoothly, Superior took advantage of Trubiquity’s Extended Support program, which included full support for Superior’s entire EDI operations with ERP support for interfacing and related functional areas.

 

Challenges Encountered & Overcome

Superior’s rapidly growing business required a scalable EDI solution that could be easily integrated between manufacturing facilitites and across geographies.

 

TRUedx helped Superior completely centralize its electronic data interchange and enterprise resource planning systems, allowing the company to standardize data communications between its manufacturing facilities, automate key processes between trading partners and refocus on core business functions like shipping, receiving and purchasing.

 

The level of data visibility found within TRUedx enabled Superior to monitor its data workflows in real-time without having to go to the IT department for information. In addition to TRUedx’s SaaS-based EDI management, Trubiquity is managing Superior’s QAD gateways and helping to integrate data from the company’s ERP operations into the system as well.

 

Here’s Proof of the Success

Superior’s implementation of TRUedx has also opened the door to help identify new ways to use B2B and integration technology to drive continuous improvement in the company’s efficiencies. Superior is partnering with Trubiquity on additional projects that will help meet increasing OEM customer demand and automate shipping processes and data sharing with outside service providers, delivering more effective inventory control.
