EDI = Money in the Bank for Major Display Manufacturer

January 26, 2016 @ 10:01 AM

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EDI solution reached 13 years of age, the company knew it would be unable to survive the terrible teens with such an outdated system.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.
