DiCentral’s B2B Integration Solution Helps International Furniture Company Reduce Manual Data Entry by 85%
DiCentral’s streamlined ordering process enhances customer experience for Furniture of America
HOUSTON - November 30, 2016 DiCentral, a leading global provider of B2Bi Managed Services, today announced their partnership with Furniture of America, an online furniture business with more than 20 years of industry experience in the United States and abroad. In order to create a more intelligent supply chain, Furniture of America partnered with DiCentral to achieve EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) compliance, automate their order process and increase visibility of trading partner performance.
As a result of the integration, DiCentral enabled Furniture of America to achieve EDI compliance as well as centralize and automate their supply chain activities in SAP Business One. Additionally, DiCentral helped Furniture of America to gather feedback from existing customers in order to automate future ordering. These solutions reduced 85% of manual order data entry time, decreased errors and sped up shipping time, meaning customers received their furniture faster than ever before.
“DiCentral’s robust integration solution allows us to meet complex trading partner demands and satisfy orders from our customers, while integrating seamlessly into our existing SAP Business One,” said Stephen Mar of Furniture of America. “The automation process with SAP Business One helps us to maximize our time, so that when our staff comes in on Monday, customer orders are ready to ship.” He goes on to say, “We now have more time to focus on critical business initiatives knowing that the data exchanged with our trading partners is automatically and accurately integrated within our ERP. Customers and partners are both happy, making it in a win-win for all involved.”
DiCentral, a gold partner for SAP Business One, simplifies and automates B2B EDI integration, meaning businesses can grow and operate with the peace of mind that their data is being shared safely and accurately with their trading partners. Retail is just one example of DiCentral’s vertical scope, which also spans the automotive, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, health care and energy industries, and more.
