Algood Food, Dynamics AX customer, shares the business advantages of working with Data Masons.

Louisville, KY based, Algood Food understands the importance of a good EDI partnership. Manufacturing peanut butter, jams and preserves since 1995, this family-owned business first implemented web EDI in the 2000s. Kelly Kane, MIS Manager says that was a big deal back then, but it also came with some challenges.

Kelly shares, "Data Masons has really helped me bridge that [technology] gap and...help[s] us get data in an efficient manner. I can just pick up the phone and I am talking to Nick or Steve or one of the guys on the support team and they are helping me through the issues, right then and there!"

In this short video Kane shares that they have seen a great return on their Data Masons investment and that they look "forward to our continued work together as a team".

EDI is New, So Where Do I Start:

Founded in Madison, Wisconsin in 1979 as Victor Allen’s® Coffee, Trilliant's growth had been fueled both organically and through acquisitions over the years. A well known, regional player, Trilliant wanted to make an even bigger name for themselves. They built a new state-of-the-art facility which required state-of-the-art EDI software to help facilitate and sustain their growth. But the new customer operations manager, Jolene Werth, was new to EDI.

Werth reached out to Data Masons and received the support she needed, including a few days of intensive face-to-face training, to prepare for a successful EDI deployment.

It Was Meant to Be

With a successful deployment under her belt, Werth now reflects, “I’m considered the EDI specialist here and that’s not my primary job. I’m a Customer Service Manager who needs to remain focused on creating happy customers. Vantage Point has helped with that.”

Since Vantage Point was deployed, Trilliant, a Microsoft Dynamics AX customer, went from one EDI customer to thirty and has done so without adding any additional customer service headcount, a true testament to the power of Data Masons’ EDI. Clearly, this partnership was meant to bean.

Macola Customer, Tolco, Fuels Growth With EDI:

Tolco Corporation, a Macola customer and family-owned molded plastics business has prided themselves on serving small companies for more than 50 years. With growth on their mind, they knew they had to foster new relationships with larger trading partners but they’d have to bring on a Macola EDI integration expert in order to do that — a scary undertaking considering they knew nothing about EDI.

They enlisted the help of Data Masons’ and their EDI solution, Vantage Point, who guided the once gun-shy Tolco, through the process with relative ease. In the four years since, Tolco has experienced so much growth from new business with large trading partners that they are building a new, expanded warehouse space.

James Reising, Tolco’s Data Information Manager, shares “The experience has been great. It’s been well worth the effort that we put into it. It has paid us back many, many times over.”

Microsoft Dynamics GP customer, Dietzgen, provides best in class print media to customers worldwide, but what they were missing was a best in class EDI solution to support their business. Capable of pushing orders through with their previous EDI solution, when they wanted to do more with EDI to automate their business processes, the company ran into more than one challenge with its existing EDI technology. Signaling it was time to evaluate other EDI solutions, Dietzgen also decided it was the opportune time to explore EDI options on the supplier side.

After going several rounds with multiple EDI solution partners, Dietzgen decided to engage Data Masons given the company’s strong reputation within the Microsoft Dynamics GP community. Not only could Data Masons’ Certified for Microsoft Dynamics GP EDI solution easily integrate with the ERP, but it could manage Dietzgen’s EDI processes on both the customer and supplier side.

wakefield-canada-logo.pngThere is considerable pressure at the top of the supply chain, which is where Wakefield Canada sits. It is the exclusive Canadian distributor for Castrol premium lubricants.

Man_in_warehouseCorLiving began with a simple vision – to provide quality furniture products that are both practical and affordable. However, while their online business continued to grow and presented exciting new sales channel opportunities, CorLiving found that their manual processes were not able to handle the increase in transaction volume. The rise in orders resulted in delays in getting them entered, an increase in data entry errors and ultimately, customers not receiving orders on time.

Dissatisfied customers was simply not an option. CorLiving realized that dealing with a very large volume of one and two piece orders was difficult, and costly, without an automated EDI system to help get all of the tedious details into their ERP system.

In this case study, CorLiving IT Manager Aaron Prior shares the company’s experience with manually managing online order processing and how the results could have jeopardized their growth had they not quickly identified the need for an automated EDI solution for Exact Macola. Prior explains how Data Masons’ Vantage Point EDI solution eliminated the need for manual data entry and streamlined data entry orders with the push of a button. Most of all, with a fully-integrated EDI option in place, CorLiving was able to increase their customer satisfaction level and omni-channel experience

Read the full case study to learn how CorLiving is:  

  • Seamlessly processing over 1000 orders daily with automated EDI;
  • Entering and processing all orders by 10am; and
  • Supporting their increasing transaction volume with a scalable EDI solution.

grocery_store_displayWhen The Marco Group’s EDI solution reached 13 years of age, the company knew it would be unable to survive the terrible teens with such an outdated system. "Band-aids" and patches had supported the company throughout the years, but at age 13, the system had stopped working and The Marco Group saw its accounts receivables back up into the millions.

The Marco Company is a family-owned business that specializes in providing merchandising solutions for the retail industry including a variety of fixtures, display carts, trays, baskets, backroom organizers and refrigerators. As the company expanded, so did the sheer volume of EDI transactions that were necessary to process customer delivery requirements, something the company’s Gentran EDI technology could not support.

In this case study, Marco Company CIO Bob Durden explains the business and financial drivers behind the decision to seek a newer, better EDI solution.  Durden shares how the company’s previous EDI solution handicapped the organization financially, and handicapped its customer delivery commitments and communication through EDI.  By switching to Vantage Point EDI, The Marco Company eliminated these handicaps with an EDI solution that can automate supply chain processes and scale to support future expansions.

Read the full case study to learn how The Marco Group:  

  • Received a $2.5 Million deposit on the first transaction using Vantage Point EDI;
  • Adopted a scalable solution that can support expanding transaction volumes; and
  • Eliminated manual processes to automate its entire supply chain.
