Vantage Point is an enterprise-class EDI solution that provides technology advances such as native XML document storage within SQL tables, an all-in-one solution design, outsourced/managed compliance and an outstanding data transformation solution. New partners can be set up in minutes, fully integrated with your accounting system and compliant with your partner’s requirements. Our expert knowledge of your accounting system enables us to create powerful and flexible integration without customizations.
Data Masons provides the best of both worlds when it comes to EDI compliance. All of the compliance responsibility can be affordably managed by Data Masons or you can create and manage your own compliance maps using our powerful mapping tool.
In most cases, Vantage Point EDI can run on the same server on which your ERP solution is running. If you have high volumes of EDI transactions, we might recommend a standalone server. We can review your current and potential volume with you and recommend your best course of action.
Data Masons offers an affordable and reliable VAN service. There are no minimums or contracts required to receive great service and pricing. We can provide a cost comparison between the Data Masons VAN service and your current provider so you can make an informed decision.

Yes, Vantage Point EDI has earned the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD) distinction for both AX and GP.

Yes. Partners that support direct Internet connection options such as FTP or AS2 involve no transaction fees. Some partners mandate the use of a VAN service, and in that case you will likely pay transmission fees (kilo-character charges). When shopping for an EDI solution, examine your cost of ownership carefully. Most hosted solutions charge transmission fees when sending documents to partners who support direct connect (i.e., Wal-Mart). You are not charged these fees when using Vantage Point EDI. We can provide a total cost of ownership calculation upon request.
Data Masons will help you migrate all relevant data so that you don't have to re-enter any data unnecessarily. We will also make sure your EDI transmissions match your current solution without partner re-testing so that you can continue your EDI processing accurately without any disruption.
If you have an existing service with another network or prefer to use an alternative network, Vantage Point EDI can connect directly to your existing mailbox.
