The family owned, Dynamics AX-based business continues to grow, but is hampered when 95% of their business flows through EDI and needs to have manual data manipulation, which can sometimes be slow as molasses. This family-owned manufacturer and distributor is dedicated to serving up the best canned beans for over 100 years. With hundreds of millions of dollars a year flowing through their EDI system, they had exceeded what their outdated Gentran EDI system could support. Not wanting to hire additional headcount to assist with the manual data transformation required to keep the old system running, they looked to a fully integrated EDI solution to work seamlessly with Dynamics AX.
