DiCentral Inc., a leading innovator in supply chain integration software and services, today announced that BabySwede has selected, implemented and already realized results with DiCentral’s DiIntegrator solution.
“When BabySwede was founded, we were under a tight timeframe to establish EDI capabilities as we had several large US retailers lined up at the start of business,” says Gregg Infante, Chief Financial Officer for BabySwede. “DiCentral was able to get us up and running very quickly and we were able to meet all initial ship dates–and everything since.”
Initially, BabySwede’s requirements were quite simple; but as the business grew, the company’s EDI requirements quickly expanded. The DiCentral solution went from processing 25 orders a week to over 200, which required BabySwede to upgrade to DiCentral’s DiIntegrator solution. DiIntegrator allowed BabySwede to process EDI transactions in batch form and have EDI documents to be imported to and exported from its customers’ accounting software system.
“The implementation of DiIntegrator was a lifesaver,” continues Infante. “It created huge gains in EDI document processing efficiency. The import process also increased order entry accuracy. Additionally, DiIntegrator enabled us to create a process where backorders could be managed via EDI without having to cancel orders that had out of stock product. Also noteworthy, DiIntegrator has allowed us to continue to add EDI trading partners while keeping our internal overhead at the same level.”
Since implementing DiIntegrator, BabySwede has increased the number of documents processed by approximately 500% with no increase to personnel; in addition, as the company continues to add new trading partners, DiCentral provides additional EDI solutions to enable BabySwede to be compliant with each customer’s unique set of requirements.
DiIntegrator, combined with DiCentral's hosted EDI translation and routing services, allows users to process large groups of orders while providing tight integration with local backend applications such as an accounting software package or ERP system. BabySwede now has the benefit of processing EDI data locally while maintaining the advantages of complete visibility and redundancy offered through a web-hosted EDI solution.
Unique "processing agents" within DiIntegrator are designed to manage and manipulate large volumes of EDI data to facilitate order and fulfillment processes. This increased functionality allows the user to manage much heavier loads of data, and comply with today's most challenging supply chain requirements. DiIntegrator effectively allows BabySwede to reduce supply chain costs by applying unique business rules and policies to meet the specific requirements for each trading partner.
Founded in 2000, today DiCentral is a leading global innovator in EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) software and service solutions. Our broad range of solutions enables a seamless exchange of data throughout the entire supply chain, creating a seamless communication stream from source to last mile. DiCentral's integration solutions are scalable to the size, growth, and unique requirements of each business. In addition, DiCentral develops and markets a complementary suite of supply chain applications for retailers and suppliers, including MFT software, WMS software, POS analytic software, outlier management software, managed EDI services, and more.
