OSG USA, Inc. Saved Thousands Of Dollars a Year On Their EDI By Switching To eBridge Connections For Integration Between Microsoft Dynamics AX And Their Retail Trading Partners

OSG is a leading manufacturer of taps, end mills, drills, and indexable cutting tools. They also serve the fastener industry by offering a complete line of thread rolling, flat, cylindrical, planetary, rack and trim dies.

In order to do business with their 20+ trading partners, OSG required the help of a VAN to enable them to send documents electronically through a process called EDI. Here are the many trading partners they manufacture products for:

The costs associated with sending documents using EDI for so many trading partners was adding up, fast, for OSG.


When eBridge Connections first encountered OSG USA, Inc., they learned they were paying top dollar to transact EDI business documents with all their 20+ trading partners. 

Because of eBridge Connections’ universal integration platform and thousands of pre-built EDI connectors, eBridge maintains a low total cost of ownership and was therefore able to offer OSG an integration solution between their trading partners and their Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP at 50% of the cost they were incurring through their current VAN. 

Moving their EDI to eBridge’s platform was no small task, but the savings made it all worth it for OSG.


Mapping more than 60 EDI documents to their various trading partners and their Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP was no small task for the implementation team at eBridge Connections. 

However, by moving to eBridge’s platform in the cloud, OSG now has access to a user-friendly dashboard where they can view, filter, archive, and reprocess their documents as they wish. They also enjoy a fast, reliable and stable platform with 99.9% uptime, and short maintenance windows. And, best of all, they will save thousands of dollars a year on their EDI processes.

The implementation team at eBridge worked diligently on OSG’s integration solution, and even succeeded in getting them up and running on their platform ahead of schedule.


With all hands on deck at eBridge, the team was able to get this sizable integration project up and running for OSG ahead of the originally scheduled go-live date for the project.

Since going live with their integration solution, Mike McKenna, eCommerce Manager at OSG, has already seen the benefits of their new EDI integration solution, and looks forward to saving money year over year with eBridge as a partner.
