Manual Data Entry Was a Pain  

Sports Dimension’s sales volume was growing, and they were bogged down with a pile of work. 

1. They were manually inputting each Sales Order into Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP by looking into Amazon Vendor central and eComDash which sources Orders from various Sales Channel such as Shopify, eBay, Amazon etc.  These systems were not integrated with their Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP. 
2. They were manually acknowledging Orders in Amazon Vendor Central. 
3. They were manually entering Invoices in Amazon Vendor Central by looking into Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP.  

Entering orders and updating inventory manually was taking time away from core business activities that would allow them to scale and grow.  

Eric and Dennis came across eBridge and decided to reach out due to their trusted reputation and 25 plus years of industry experience.  

Workflows Automated Via eBridge   

eBridge's implementation team was able to get this integration up and running diligently. Since they were integrating multiple platforms with their Dynamics AX ERP, it was all hands-on deck. 

These are the workflows Sports Dimension was looking to automate from Amazon and ecomdash:   

Amazon   

- Inbound PO's (850)   
- Outbound PO Ack. (855)   
- Outbound Invoice (810)  

Ecomdash   

-Inbound sales orders (850)  
-Orders from various sales channels such as Shopify, eBay, Amazon, etc  

The Impact eBridge Has Made for Sport Dimension 

Amazon’s Vendor Central can sometimes present a challenge when it comes to setting up EDI document flow directly to an ERP system due to their API. However, this was not a challenge for the eBridge implementation team. With a little research and some testing, they were able to deliver. Before launch, eBridge tested each connection to ensure that data was flowing bi-directionally without any errors. In addition, they did not leave Eric, Dennis, and the team at Sports Dimension high and dry. eBridge provided training. This enabled Sports Dimension to troubleshoot any errors they could potentially encounter by themselves. 
Great project. Great company. Great team!
