How EDI Gateway adds value to ERP system for ISV and SI partners

ERP system integrator key factors

System integration is a major challenge in many industries. When considering an ERP system integrator, clients must consider the following key factors:

Knowledge of the ERP system of choice

Consulting methodology and tool-set.

Focus on the non-technical

Organizational structure

ERP implementation success factors

 

Supply chain and ERP system

The supply chain processes are a major part of integration; they must to be evaluated thoroughly, and improved upon. Given the lengthy timeline required to complete each implementation, time remains a significant concern for all stakeholders involved.

The main purpose of changing your ERP system is to optimize your business processes through automation, thereby maximizing productivity and profit.  The clients need their integration provider to understand their business challenges and be able to address them through a qualified ISV/System Integrator.

 

The supply chain is a complex process in which operational and strategic decisions have to be made. From a global point of view, the analysis of a supply chain focuses on three distinct stages:

Raw Material supply

Manufacturing process

Distribution

 

The challenges of today’s supply chains are further complicated by the increasing requirement and demand for a Direct to Customer and/or Drop Ship program within the retail industry.

Although implementing an ERP system can be a long and daunting process, requiring months of testing, change management, training, and a variety of business process improvements, the concern remains: how will we continue to service our customers as well as ensure uninterrupted EDI transmission cycle? Will we face downtime? Will we have to change our business process in the interim? Will this new implementation risk compromising our trading partner relationships? Will we risk losing sales due to errors and oversights? And finally, will our cash flow be affected by delayed payments?
