EDI Integration for Fashion

Putting your best foot forward with EDI integration for apparel, footwear and accessories

The fashion industry, including apparel, footwear, accessories and more, has unique challenges when it comes to ERP and EDI activities that require intelligent EDI solution design, flexibility and performance.




Helping fashion work

Data Masons EDI addresses these scenarios and thereby removes the burden from the ERP and supporting systems to handle the nuances of different partners including suppliers, customers, aggregators and third-party public warehouses.

Data Masons EDI understands the ERP’s view of the world and helps resolve partner requirements and limitations without ERP customization. It streamlines advanced challenges such as resolution of Bill of Material (BOM) data in the ERP to implode/explode assortment relationships to internal SKUs and vice-a-versa.

Scalability is critical as fashion product variants can generate thousands and even millions of unique color, style, and size combinations that can cripple systems that do not scale well.

Best of all, Data Masons EDI comes with implementation support by industry experts that understand fashion, ERP solutions and the logistical challenges of sourcing, transporting, warehousing and distribution of goods in complex omni-channel environments.
