Technology and Expertise Deliver EDI Integration with Ease
Extensive Windows-compatible functionality without Microsoft Dynamics ERP customization
Vantage Point EDI’s reliance on Web Services, Microsoft’s .NET, SQL and XML technology components enables powerful cloud-based or on-premise functionality with a low total cost of ownership. Since Microsoft’s SQL platform is highly-scalable, Vantage Point EDI can traverse large record sets with lightning speed, making it a true enterprise-class solution. And while Vantage Point EDI handles complex transaction relationships, its unique design provides simple, out-of-the-box, plug-and-play integration that can get you transacting with partners in a matter of days, not weeks or months.
Certified for Microsoft Dynamics, Vantage Point EDI is a functional solution – not just a set of tools. Unlike legacy translators such as Sterling Gentran® (GIS) and Trusted Link®, Vantage Point EDI creates the outbound documents your partners require without forcing the ERP system to store and return extraneous data to the translator. Each element of the inbound document is captured in a standardized XML format within the SQL database and made available to Vantage Point EDI’s mapping system to provide the needed information to the partner.
Control updates and ERP upgrades
Vantage Point EDI’s non-embedded design and XML data storage within SQL allows virtually any new compliance initiative without the need for costly ERP customization, upgrades or integration. Data Masons supports ERP integrations long after the ERP solution provider has terminated support for the version. Vantage Point EDI upgrades can be accomplished in minutes by your system administrator.
Architected to support Cloud-based environments
Vantage Point EDI delivers the same benefits in the cloud that its unique, feature-rich technology model offers today. With a focus on web services, tight Dynamics ERP integration and end-to-end transaction support, Data Masons stands apart with a solution architected to support cloud-based environments, even before cloud-based computing became a true business opportunity.
Standardized handling of different data formats
Standardized handling of different data formats is a key component of Data Masons’ EDI Made Simple® concept. If the proper standard is loaded, then the data is always handled the same way, regardless of the data format or version used by the customer. Vantage Point EDI is also very simple to set up among diverse partners without a complex implementation project.

Powerful mapping functionality
A managed compliance model using SAAS technology enables instantaneous map changes via the Web. Vantage Point EDI’s Universal Data Translator can “map” the most accurate data by dynamically retrieving data from any potential source of the needed data – the accounting system, the original inbound document, cross-reference tables, a web service or virtually any other ODBC-compliant data source such as spreadsheets and databases.
Extensive trading partner network
Data Masons connects with any trading partner, delivering the confidence you need to meet new and evolving trading partner requirements. Data Masons maintains a library for more than 1,400 trading partners and trading partner kits can be installed in minutes so your company can begin transacting with business partners immediately.
