Go through our case studies to understand how easy it is for a company to connect to its business partners with Faxinating Solutions.
Boutique Progolf buys from manufacturers of golf equipment and clothing and sells to pro shops at golf courses. According to Martin Boucher of BPG, “We could not expand across the country and expect to triple our sales volume without the help of FSI.”
Before they came to FSI, they had several people handling their accounts payable between March and September. Finding staff that can work full time for only four (stressful) months is not easy.
The owners of Boutiques Progolf would rather be golfing than supervising so they turned to FSI. Our solution helped BPG reduce their Accounts Payable department to one person.
Metro requires all of their suppliers to be EDI-compliant. However, forcing these suppliers to implement EDI standards and the necessary software proved impossible. Many of the smaller suppliers were unable or unwilling to make the required investments in hardware or software and the personnel needed to manage their EDI system. Many of the smaller suppliers still operate the old fashioned, paper-based way.
Allflex, a Texas-based company, is the largest manufacturer and distributor of livestock identification systems in the world. Faxinating Solutions has been providing data integration services to Allflex for over five years.
Initially when Allflex approached Faxinating Solutions, they had a lack of integration between their Great Plains Software accounting package and their EDI-compliant trading partners.
Since most of Allflex's buyers are EDI-compliant, they need to support the receipt of EDI Purchase Orders within their system. However, they weren't sure if they wanted to host their own EDI system inhouse. They knew that supporting EDI was problematic (standards constantly changing, the hardware and software requirements, software bugs, VAN costs) so they decided to outsource their EDI to a third-party.
Loblaws is one of Canada's largest retail grocery chains. For over ten years, Faxinating Solutions has been providing Loblaws with a number of data integration and translation services. These services enable Loblaws to maintain 100% EDI-compliancy with their suppliers.
Faxinating's exAct® software enables Loblaws' suppliers to receive purchase orders and convert them directly into invoices.
CDMV is a Montreal-based distributor of veterinary products. They order products from a number of pharmaceutical/healthcare manufacturers. Most of these suppliers are EDI-compliant, and require that their customers use EDI to order their products. CDMV did not have an EDI system in house so they turned to Faxinating.
CDMV could only supply Faxinating with a printed purchase order direct from their accounting system. However, this setup was sufficient for the FS Printegrator service.
