Honda requires the use of a certified solution from an approved software vendor. Also, they require their suppliers to go through a certification process. Receiving Honda’s certification is a big achievement for companies in the industry.
If using an uncertified solution, the supplier must go through a more extensive certification process. At which point the supplier is considered hybrid. But by using a certified solution, Radley customers have a quick and simple certification process.
The experienced Honda EDI team actually visits each software company seeking certification. They review both the technology and the services and support provided by the vendor. Honda reviewed Radley’s capabilities for label printing, shipping documents and reporting.
As a leader in the industry, Radley is an active member of two main industry organizations. Our involvement in Materials Management Operations Guidelines/Logistics Evaluation (MMOG/LE) and Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) keeps us on the forefront of changes within the automotive world.
MMOG helps establish standards for evaluating supply chain processes within the automotive industry. Logistics organizations and suppliers receive evaluations of ‘A’, ‘B’ or ‘C’ ratings. These rating relate to the company’s streamlining of operations. A higher rating equates to more successful reduction of costs, waste and workloads.
