The continuing growth of Regal Cinemas theater network caused Regal to transition away from their existing purchasing system and implement MIcrosoft Dynamics AX for Financials. At that time, the company acknowledged that their homegrown EDI solution wouldn't be able to scale with them and that they needed a comprehensive EDI solution that worked well with their Dynamics AX implementation.  By having the right technology in place, Regal Cinemas could ensure customers get their complete movie experience, seamlessly.

If your company is considering an upgrade from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 and currently has external business integrations, understanding the new integration framework will be critical to your planning and success. While looking forward to the benefits that the feature-rich Dynamics 365 platform promises to deliver, the integration technologies that have been added and deprecated warrant an overall evaluation of your integration strategy.

In this white paper, we’ll discuss what these changes mean to your organization and what opportunities they open the door to for EDI integration with Dynamics 365. Specifically, we’ll take a look at the pros and cons of the most widely-used approaches to EDI, such as Value Added Networks (VAN), the use of in-house development resources and contracting outsourced specialists.

As an alternative to these EDI approaches, we’ll discuss an integration option that does not modify the ERP, complementing the performance and functionality offered by the Dynamics 365 for Operations Platform.

Microsoft Dynamics GP customer, Dietzgen, provides best in class print media to customers worldwide, but what they were missing was a best in class EDI solution to support their business. Capable of pushing orders through with their previous EDI solution, when they wanted to do more with EDI to automate their business processes, the company ran into more than one challenge with its existing EDI technology. Signaling it was time to evaluate other EDI solutions, Dietzgen also decided it was the opportune time to explore EDI options on the supplier side.

After going several rounds with multiple EDI solution partners, Dietzgen decided to engage Data Masons given the company’s strong reputation within the Microsoft Dynamics GP community. Not only could Data Masons’ Certified for Microsoft Dynamics GP EDI solution easily integrate with the ERP, but it could manage Dietzgen’s EDI processes on both the customer and supplier side.

Vantage Point EDI Has Met Microsoft’s Highest Standard for Partner-Developed Software Solutions for Microsoft Dynamics AX, GP and NAV


Data Masons Software, a leading provider of Integrated EDI and XML solutions for Microsoft Dynamics customers, announced today that its Vantage Point EDI solution is now Certified for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015.  This certification means that the solution has met Microsoft Corp.’s highest standard for quality in partner-developed software.  Vantage Point EDI is now the only EDI solution certified for Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Solutions that are Certified for Microsoft Dynamics NAV prove that the solution meets the highest level of development quality and compatibility with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and is delivered by an organization staffed with individuals that are certified by Microsoft to deliver Dynamics related services.  To achieve certification, solutions must pass rigorous development best practices and demonstrate compatibility with Microsoft Dynamics NAV.  In addition, the Microsoft Dynamics partner must provide a referenceable group of Dynamics NAV customers who are successfully using the certified solution and recommend it to other Dynamics NAV users.

Andy Hafer, CEO of Dynamic Communities, Inc. states, "As we've seen Microsoft progress its product release schedule and evolve their go to market strategies, it's heartening to see partners like Data Masons make such a large commitment to keep pace and shared vision with Microsoft.  Data Masons’ non-embedded EDI solution provides a vital option in the community that supports the unique needs of Microsoft Dynamics NAV user companies.  We appreciate Data Masons and their commitment to helping NAVUG member companies optimize their business, industry and technology investments, particularly during this period of dramatic change."

“I congratulate Data Masons on achieving their CfMD for Dynamics NAV designation.  I understand it’s quite an involved process and this is great example of their long-standing, deep commitment to the Microsoft Dynamics community.  They’ve been involved with the user groups since the very start and have always been a bedrock supporter of our mission and education for Dynamics users.” States Mark Rhodes, Program Director for NAVUG.

For customers, Certified for Microsoft Dynamics helps identify Microsoft Dynamics solutions that have been tested for compatibility, meet high quality standards, and are successfully used by existing customers. This certification represents a significant step in elevating the standard for partner-developed software solutions for industry-specific business applications.

Thomas Hicks, CEO of Steiner Enterprises, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV customer, commented, "We chose Data Masons and Vantage Point for Mitchell Fabrics because the product is much easier to integrate, more reliable and more cost effective than traditional NAV EDI solutions built within the NAV product. Vantage Point allowed us to implement it cost effectively, and it's built to be extensible as our business grows, without the additional high costs associated with other EDI solutions."
