Allflex reached out to Faxinating Solutions because they had a lack of integration between their GP ERP accounting package and their EDI-compliant trading partners.
Since most of Allflex’s buyers are EDI-compliant, they need to support the reception of EDI Purchase Orders within their system. However, they weren’t sure if they wanted to host their own EDI system in-house. They knew that supporting EDI was problematic (standards constantly changing, the hardware and software requirements, software bugs, VAN costs) so they decided to outsource to a third-party.
EDI Outsource Service
Allflex’s main requirement was to receive the EDI orders within their Peachtree system, without having to make any investments in EDI. Faxinating’s EDI Outsource service does just that.
EDI compliant buyers produce Purchase Orders and send them to Faxinating via EDI. Once received, Faxinating logs the data and converts the information to a Peachtree import file, which is then sent to Allflex. Allflex is now able to import the Purchase Order data into their accounting package with a click of the mouse.
Furthermore, each buyer is able to implement their own version of the EDI standard, whether it’s 3040, 4010 or 4030. Flexibility is the key to this service.

AllFlex has an EDI-compliant interface that ties into their back-end, without having to invest in EDI. If standards change, they needn’t worry. They will continue to receive their import files in the same format. Their data is synchronized, correct and complete, all for a very low price.
