BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Castle Merchandising’s business flourished throughout North America, so having the right solution to manage the exchange of electronic documents between more than 20 trading partners was essential.  The company needed a cutting edge, fully-integrated EDI solution that would allow them receive orders directly into their ERP system from customers. Castle Merchandising needed EDI to streamline and seamlessly handle hundreds of documents every day. The company operates by using QuickBooks Enterprise as their backend system for their accounting and inventory needs and they required an EDI partner that could integrate with QuickBooks in order to free up staff resources from manual data entry and error prone processes. The company also required an EDI solution that would allow them sell to multiple other trading partners without a huge increase in costs.

The company selected the B2BGateway EDI solution to fully-integrate with their QuickBooks Enterprise ERP system in order to remove the need for the Castle Merchandising staff to manually re-key data and can expedite the ‘order-to-payment’ process with their trading partner base. Today with the help of B2BGateway, Castle Merchandising automates the transmission of thousands of EDI documents and tens of thousands of SKUs (product lines) each and every month.
