Independent retailers in Estonia are EDIfying themselves

In the second half of 2016 several independent regional retail stores have joined Telema EDI network. Smaller local FMCG shops like ALAVERE POOD OÜ, KASEPERE OÜ and AITÄH! OÜ each have already connected their first 20-30 suppliers. STELLANA OÜ, a DIY store, is finalizing its connection to electronic document transfer.

Some of the stores have used EDI over web before, but have now decided to upgrade. Integrated EDI service eliminates double data entry - orders can be sent and invoices received directly from the ERP. Smaller stores are usually low on staff and the hours tend to be long. More efficient processes mean less overtime and happier personnel.

EDIfication of smaller stores also suits the suppliers - the more links in the supply chain use EDI, the higher the efficiency in the whole supply chain. Using EDI will decrease the costs and improve on-shelf availability.

NPS: source for great ideas from customers

“Based on my 3-years experience I can say that the document traffic has worked perfectly. The new solutions are planned and tested thoroughly. The core of the rapidly evolving company is a very cool and nice team.”

Leelo Laiverik, the ERP super user of Liviko AS.

Telema’s yearly Net Promoter Score (NPS) survey held in November 2016 resulted in an all time high score of 60. On a satisfaction scale from 0-10 our average score was 8.66.

Out of the 989 respondents, two thirds gave Telema the maximum scores of 9-10. Majority of clients praised Telema services to be professional, fast and convenient.

The survey brought Telema valuable and specific information regarding our products. For example, thanks to the customer feedback, we released improvements to Telema MMT product card layout. Also, several ideas from the NPS survey for Telema eFlow have already been implemented : the eFlow application is slimmer to fit the screens better and the log of users’ actions is now much more detailed.
