Keep Pace and Reduce Risk of Error
Fashion apparel and consumer lifestyle products companies have little margin for errors and delays.
Timely, reliable visibility and collaboration around purchase orders, invoices, shipping, inventory and other critical business documents and confirmations are essential for success. To ensure compliance with delivery and customer service requirements, many companies have embraced Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) as the standard for sharing information with customers, suppliers and other business partners.
EDI saves companies time and money. By eliminating manual creation, duplicated data entry and related errors in the retrieval, processing and transportation of documents and information, many retailers requiring suppliers to convert their sales and purchasing operations have turned to EDI as the standard for business-to-business integration.
Streamline Processes for Increased Operational Efficiency
BlueCherry® EDI automates and significantly streamlines all the transactional processes of a fashion and consumer lifestyle products business, eliminating human error and associated costs. The robust nature of our EDI solutions enable companies to leverage and expand their business capabilities and support more and more business in an increasingly efficient and cost-effective manner.
Supporting over 40 EDI transactional capabilities across all sectors of the business supply and demand chain--including retail, production, warehouse logistics, transportation and eCommerce--BlueCherry EDI can be used immediately out of the box, and does not require significant time, resources and “custom fitting” experienced with other available EDI solutions.
BlueCherry EDI’s versatility and modular design, along with its support of vast numbers and types of business transactions, is a unique driver of operational efficiency.
