The company was growing and expanding. Where there was opportunity, the Piccola Cucina team knew there would also be challenges. Piccola Cucina faced many logistical challenges including supply and demand and the ability to add new channels, like Costco. Supplying to Costco was exciting but the team needed a way to integrate EDI documents directly with the retailer. While they weren’t familiar with EDI, they knew they needed to do it. Piccola Cucina found out that Costco works with CommerceHub as their EDI hub for drop shipping.
Getting advice from CommerceHub on integrating EDI documents
Piccola Cucina reached out to CommerceHub during supplier setup. Not only did they need to do EDI, but they also needed an automated data flow between CommerceHub and their accounting system, QuickBooks.
CommerceHub introduced Piccola Cucina to eBridge Connections, a team of ERP and accounting system integration experts. eBridge and CommerceHub struck a partnership in 2019
. They work as a dynamic team to help suppliers integrate ERP and accounting systems directly to CommerceHub to comply with retail EDI.
Why integrating CommerceHub Costco EDI makes sense
eBridge Connections is a provider of cloud-based accounting integration-Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) for small to medium-sized businesses that supply to retail marketplaces and channels.

eBridge ensured a smooth transition for Piccola Cucina
After an initial kick-off call, eBridge got straight to work by connecting to their QuickBooks, setting up their workflows, and then testing with Costco. The process was teamwork from the start, which is especially important when suppliers are brand new to EDI. The goal of integration was simple: to save time and effort in process logistics.
“eBridge was a pleasure to work with, very helpful in walking me through the process as someone very new to EDI. Thank you!” – Pina, Piccola Cucina
