Vor unserer Entscheidung für Lobster haben wir mit bis zu 10.000 unterschiedlichen Workflows gearbeitet – für jeden Kunden und jeden Lieferanten einen! Durch Lobster_data konnten wir diese Zahl auf weniger als 100 senken

Michael Wohlgemuth,
Abteilung EDI/eCommerce, Gerry Weber


With the help of our Lobster_data software, we helped fashion brand Gerry Weber bring its electronic data communication in line with its international expansion plans.

One of the biggest challenges for the customer was effectively managing the continual expansion of EAI and EDI in an international setting. The rising need for interfaces along with the growing demands associated with managing them and a lack of transparency due to the third-party solution for processing protocols such as SFTP or AS2 were causing problems.

Not only were we able to meet all of Gerry Weber’s requirements ‘in one interface’, the number of EDI workflows was reduced drastically, and all mapping tasks were brought back in-house. The internalisation of these operations helped the company to foster more process-related expertise within its teams, improving transparency – which was further enhanced through Lobster_data’s integrated central monitoring for rapid troubleshooting and error resolution. What’s more, the designer is now able to automatically send invoices via web services and include a JAVA extension for integrating niche data formats.
