EDI for The Cloud
Vantage Point EDI Provides Cloud-enabled Solution for Microsoft Dynamics ® ERPs
Supporting Microsoft's initiative to move to the cloud with the next major releases of Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions, Data Masons' Vantage Point EDI is an ideal solution for customers moving to cloud-based environments, delivering the same benefits in the cloud that its unique, feature-rich technology model offers today. With a focus on tight Dynamics ERP integration and end-to-end transaction support, Data Masons stands apart from other ISVs in the Microsoft Dynamics community with a solution architected to support cloud-based environments, even before cloud-based computing became a true business opportunity.
Features that make Vantage Point EDI the solution-of-choice:
Multi-tenant and Multi-instance
Vantage Point EDI supports multiple legal entities in a single instance with secure access to authorized users by entity. The solution can also support multiple ERP and EDI platform instances in a cloud-based platform. This feature makes the solution highly-scalable and flexible to meet an organization’s specific business and technology requirements using a single code set.
Unlike many cloud-based applications, Vantage Point EDI has the ability to meet specific customization requirements without separate instances of the core application or application modifications. By eliminating costly code changes yet remaining flexible, organizations avoid EDI-related complications that they would otherwise face with future ERP upgrades or service pack installations.
Vantage Point EDI employs secure web services to integrate data. In addition to integrating EDI transactions, the solution also detects and reports errors, automatically sending user-customizable error messages, error resolution instructions and workflow processes intended to correct the issue and retry the process. With browser-based integration that communicates to the cloud via web services, Vantage Point EDI’s three-tier approach provides scalable performance and presents the application as a native component of the ERP solution - all without ERP platform customization.
Vantage Point EDI runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, providing unmatched business rules processing to minimize failures that can result in unnecessary costs and challenge trading partner relationships. And if a transaction does fail, Vantage Point EDI automatically provides strong messaging to reach resolution quickly and efficiently.
Most web-based EDI solutions that promote EDI translation and integration services via the web do little more than “throw a file over the wall”, leaving the difficult integration challenges to the Dynamics consultant and customer to maintain. In contrast, Vantage Point EDI is designed for integration, advanced error trapping and alerting, which are necessary to achieve true automation and ROI. At the same time, Vantage Point EDI’s non-embedded design and advanced EDI data storage within SQL allows only the data required by the ERP system to be integrated. All other data is stored outside of the ERP for easy retrieval when needed by the trading partner. By integrating only the required data, organizations can implement virtually any new compliance initiative without the need for costly ERP customizations or upgrades.
