Profiles in Successful EDI Integration: Acella Pharmaceuticals Prescribes Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 and Integrated EDI to Manage Growth

From Dennis Bruce of Data Masons: Specialty pharmaceutical company and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 customer, Acella Pharmaceuticals, traditionally relied on a third-party logistics (3PL) provider to support certain supply chain functions, including EDI.
