The Marco Company Automates Entire Supply Chain and Increases Cash Flow With EDI Solution From Data Masons

Case study details how The Marco Company's transition from an outdated EDI system to an industry leading solution freed the company from financial and supply chain delivery bottlenecks.

Data Masons Software, LLC., a leading provider of Integrated EDI and XML solutions for Exact ERP customers, announces the availability of a case study for Exact Macola customer, The Marco Company. The Marco Company is a family-owned business that specializes in providing merchandising solutions for the retail industry. The case study highlights the business and financial drivers behind the company’s decision to replace its EDI technology and the significant impact made by implementing Data Masons’ Vantage Point EDI solution.

The Marco Company’s previous EDI technology was unable to support the methods and procedures required for the company to receive prompt payment from its customers. Opting not to continue with software patches and customizations, The Marco Company decided to seek a newer, better EDI solution that could scale to support the expanding volume of EDI transactions.

"The result to the business of relying on older technology was that it handicapped our organization financially, and handicapped our customer delivery commitments and communication through EDI,” stated Bob Durden, CIO, The Marco Company. After selecting Data Masons to replace the company’s Gentran EDI system, Data Masons accelerated the implementation process to get all of the unprocessed transactions transferred to Vantage Point EDI. “Data Masons advanced our project by more than a week, transferring and reprocessing hundreds and hundreds of transactions within just four or five days, and as a result, we received a $2.5 Million deposit on the very first transaction,” added Durden.

Vantage Point EDI allows customers to easily integrate ERP with EDI, making it simple to comply with EDI mandates from trading partners, while also streamlining order processing activities. The solution’s built-in capabilities transform laborious manual data entry processes to an automated seamless data integration environment. “We were doing so many things manually or through unusually written scripts to accomplish things that barely came near to what Data Masons already has built in,” continued Durden.

“By the time The Marco Company contacted us, they were already extremely deep into their EDI problems and were basically in a down situation. With our expertise and innovative technology model behind us, we were able to quickly deliver a solution that would free The Marco Company from the EDI challenges that had previously handicapped them. We’re extremely excited to see The Marco Company operating today with the flexibility they need to move and adjust quickly in order to execute on their customer delivery commitments,” stated Dennis Bruce, Director, Business Development, Data Masons Software.
