Today, we are pleased to feature a guest blog post from one of our technology solution partners, Data Masons, which offers Vantage Point EDI for Macola, a cost-effective and reliable gateway—and as a reminder—also integrates with Macola solutions:
Streamlining and automating the basic core EDI documents – customer-facing Purchase Orders, ASNs and Invoices – is a process that many business organizations have figured out and they have integrated those documents seamlessly with the ERP. However,bigger EDI challenges that extend beyond those documents can truly threaten your company’s business operations and efficiency.
When most small and medium sized companies talk about implementing EDI with suppliers, the first reaction is “No one is forcing us to do that so why would we want to?” The simple answer is the same reason large enterprises mandate their suppliers to do EDI: it saves money, which goes straight to the bottom line. If you think about EDI as a requirement, something your company must implement if you want to do business with larger organizations, consider the monolithic, error-prone way data gets into your ERP solution – typically via keyboard.
