Cornelius Deutschland GmbH
Cornelius is a leading global manufacturer of cooling and dispensing systems. The company is using Netfira’s digitisation solution for procurement to implement its Procurement 4.0 strategy. To do this, it is replacing its previous EDI system with Netfira’s software and using a completely automated process for supplier onboarding. By digitising all of its document flows, Cornelius hopes not only to reduce costs and increase efficiency but also to create more space for strategic activities. ‘As a modern procurement department, we are using all of the latest optimisation possibilities that electronic supplier onboarding offers’, says Jens Heinrich, Procurement Director for the entire EMEA region at Cornelius.
