Nallian enables Balta to easily and quickly integrate with 200 trading partners

As one of the leading producers of floor coverings in Europe with 95% of its products exported to over 100 countries throughout the world, Balta Group operates a highly complex international supply chain with hundreds of trading partners. Balta’s dynamic company structure and a rapidly growing international network of trading partners, urged the company to find a solution that would support easy and fast on-boarding of new trading partners and increase business agility.
In the past, Balta took different initiatives to integrate with its trading partners but the complexity and costs forced the company to explore a new approach. After a comprehensive selection process to evaluate potential partners, Nallian was selected. The Nallian solution proved to offer an immediate and significant return on investment and the solution enables Balta to realize its strategic objectives.

Business Benefits

  • reduction of costs (no redundancy of operations, reduced integration costs)
  • reduction of operational risks (more pro-active acting, flexible sourcing and less out-of-stocks or obsolete products)
  • reduction in working capital (lower safety stocks, faster payments)
  • increased business agility
  • enhanced customer service through more and faster information and feedback, which leads to customer satisfaction and loyalty
  • higher data quality, single truth:
    • data is managed from its source
    • data elements can be provided by multiple data sources and cross-matched against one another, improving data quality
Efficiently managing supply chain processes and complex relationships with multiple partners is vital to our performance and customer service. With Nallian, the integration time to connect with new trading partners is reduced from months to minutes, independent of the IT-maturity, preferences and back-end systems of our trading partners. This results in improved cost structure and significantly increases our business agility.
