SEEBURGER Automotive B2B/EDI Solution "Honda Approved"

SEEBURGER, the leading global B2B/EDI integration provider, today announced that it has passed one of the most rigorous electronic data interchange (EDI) approvals in the automotive industry, Honda North America's extensive testing process. SEEBURGER managed the EDI and communication portions of the testing and partnered with Edibar Systems, Inc., (Troy, MI.) for barcode/labeling and ASN shipping verification requirements.

"We're pleased to welcome SEEBURGER into our team of approved software providers," said James Murphy, assistant manager, Purchasing Division, Honda North America. They successfully completed our testing process in the shortest timeframe to date, and are approved according to our most recent implementation guidelines for EDI transactions and bar code requirements.

Honda, a global leader in automotive manufacturing with production capacity in its Marysville, Ohio plant of 440,000 units, requires all of its original equipment (OEM) parts suppliers to use an approved integrated EDI/barcode labeling solution. In order to attain the "Honda Approved Software" rating, software vendors such as SEEBURGER must complete a comprehensive four-phase approval process to verify they are complying with Honda's requirements for electronic data validity and barcode label conformance.

"This is a tremendous accomplishment," said Scott Lewin, President, SEEBURGER, Inc. "With Edibar Systems, Inc." assistance, we've achieved a prestigious approval from Honda North America, demonstrating our in-depth understanding of US automotive EDI and displaying, once again, that SEEBURGER technology is the most efficient and dependable solution for the automotive industry.
