Microsoft Dynamics GP Case Study: Thirstystone Increases Employee Productivity and Bottom Line with Integrated EDI Solution

Email | Print

Thirstystone, best known for its line of 100% natural sandstone coasters, was running Microsoft Dynamics GP and needed a new integrated EDI solution to replace an aging solution that was labor intensive and inaccurate, resulting in extensive chargebacks. The company selected  Data Masons' Vantage Point EDI for Microsoft Dynamics GP solution given the company's distinguishing combination of EDI & ERP expertise and integration model.


“Vantage Point EDI integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics GP without any GP customizations. This approach enabled us to get up and running in a matter of days, as opposed to other solutions that would require a lengthy project implementation,” stated Jim Dennis, Director of IT for Thirstystone. Vantage Point EDI's lower than expected implementation cost, coupled with the operational cost savings, drove a faster ROI than Thirstystone had anticipated.


Jim added, “Compared to the embedded EDI solutions for GP, Vantage Point EDI delivers tight integration to GP without customization, which made our upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013R2 a snap. Removing EDI disruptions out of the project scope allowed us to maintain focus on the GP upgrade itself and not on how EDI customizations will work going forward.”
