FiftyThree needed an EDI solution that fully integrated with their QuickBooks Enterprise system and also a solution that was fully compliant with their trading partners’ specifications. FiftyThree’s requirements included the ability to manage growing customer demands, improve supply chain efficiencies, cut costs and have their overall EDI solution implemented within a short time frame.
As a QuickBooks Gold Developer with the highest customer satisfaction rating on the Intuit QuickBooks App Store Apps.com, B2BGateway was chosen to look after the EDI needs of FiftyThree. FiftyThree selected the B2BGateway’s cloud based EDI solution after an extensive search of the EDI provider marketplace. Not alone could B2BGateway provide full integration to their QuickBooks Enterprise system, but B2BGateway being a global organization with offices in North America, Europe and Australia was able to meet all the international EDI data standards such as ANSI X12, EDIFACT, Tradacoms etc. That would be required by FiftyThrees international customers and third party logistics providers (3PL).
Having a fully integrated EDI solution allows FiftyThree to automate the sending and receiving of standard business documents such as purchase orders, invoices, shipping notices and inventory updates internationally with their customers and third party logistics providers. By fully integrating with QuickBooks Enterprise, B2BGateway removed the need for the FiftyThree staff to manually re-key data; this in turn leads to reduced errors, lower labor costs and a faster ‘order to payment’ cycle with their customers.
