Adoption Methodolgy

Any new initiative will fail without the buy in of those involved. This is especially true with an EDI project where the end users (suppliers) do not all work for the same company. The ground work of planning, strategizing, and creating a powerful message is almost more important than the actual roll out process. Presenting the right message and being able to proactively communicate it to each supplier, while educating them on the benefits to EDI is the goal. This community adoption process is not only an integration of EDI systems but an integration of processes, people and goals. This method of adoption over these many layers is where the true ROI will be accomplished.

To accomplish this success we use a proven methodology built from experience and best practices and apply it to your specific project requirement. We take into consideration the different stages of maturity of each supplier with respect to EDI. Our adoption method has a three pronged approach so each supplier can be adopted into the community regards of what stage they are in.

Improving 3PL Customer Satisfaction and Automating Shipment Communication

A third party logistics (3PL) provider (warehouse) had many issues communicating with their customers (vendors) on how and when to ship EDI orders.  When waiting for shipping requests they would receive emails or faxes but inevitably it would take numerous phone calls and hours of additional labor to make sure everyone was on the same page.  One customer in particular used another EDI provider to print the UCC128 labels.
