Profiles in Successful EDI Integration: EDI is the New Must-have Accessory for Microsoft Dynamics AX in the Apparel Industry

February 14, 2012 @ 1:02 AM

From Dennis Bruce of Data Masons: For The Fechheimer Brothers Company, a manufacturer of quality uniforms, and Key Industries, the largest manufacturer of farming apparel in the Midwest, implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX meant the ability to effectively manage inventory and labor costs that are unique to the industry, as well as provide great service to their customers. A new ERP also meant a new opportunity to address their EDI needs.

Replacing their ERP platforms with Microsoft Dynamics AX, both companies had the perfect opportunity to analyze how they were handling EDI and evaluate other available solutions, ones that could help them overcome industry-specific challenges and gain a competitive advantage within the marketplace. Both companies realized that an integrated EDI solution would best utilize the power of Microsoft Dynamics AX to meet their EDI mandates. Their Microsoft Dynamics AX reselling partners both had previous experience working with Data Masons’ EDI and ERP experts and recommended the company’s Vantage Point EDI solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX as the number one option for Fechheimer Brothers and Key Industries.

Data Masons’ fully-integrated Vantage Point EDI solution pairs perfectly with Microsoft Dynamics AX to resolve common EDI challenges such as assortments, musical runs and master pack implosion and explosion logic. With ‘plug and play’ configuration and tight integration, Vantage Point EDI’s unique technology platform and business model combines with Microsoft Dynamics AX to take the manual intervention out of EDI processing and eliminate unnecessary transaction fees that can compromise ROI and a company’s ability to do more with less.

The Fechheimer Brothers Company and Key Industries will benefit from EDI processing that includes automatic, powerful alerts and user-definable workflows that enable Microsoft Dynamics AX users to tailor and optimize the EDI solution to meet their industry-specific requirements - without any ERP customizations.
