DESC was initially brought in to support and expand the use of a legacy EDI tool. When the client decided to migrate to webMethods they turned to DESC to migrate them from the legacy EDI tool to webMethods 6.1. DESC completed the migration in 6 weeks from the ground up. The project was centered on the Order Management cycle with such Transaction Sets as the ANSI X12 810,850, 855,852.
DESC was brought in for our expertise in EDI integration to migrate this client from a legacy EDI tool to the webMethods platform. We implemented EDI and EDIINT for this client in webMethods 6.01 in just 4 weeks. This project was also focused on the Order Management cycle utilizing ANSI X12 Transaction Sets 810 and 850’s.
DESC was retained, as Project Leader to implement EDI with Peoplesoft. Sterling Gentran Server with a SQL Server back-end was the product of choice. The project had a financial focus utilizing the ANSI X12 820, 821 and EDIFACT PAYEXT and FINSTA transaction sets. This was one of our most interesting projects due to its Global interaction with banks in Canada, the US and the UK.
DESC was brought in to implement an EDI Proof of Value utilizing webMethods 6.01 in a pre-sale negotiation for a Fortune 50 company in Canada. Our expertise to deliver the proof of value in 10 days won the sale. This short, time sensitive project was transportation based utilizing the ANSI X12 Transaction Sets 410, 404 and 850.
DESC was hired to maintain the existing EDI environment and to work as part of a team to migrate the environment to a new UNIX based environment. The product selected was Sterling's Gentran Server for UNIX with an Oracle back-end. The project was Logistics and Order Management oriented with emphasis on the both UCS and ANSI X12 850,810 and the Warehouse Transactions 940,944, 945. We went on to expand the clients EDI program to new customers.
This client retained the services of DESC to manage their Canadian EDI rollout program working in conjunction with their US team. When the project started they were running Gentran Mainframe, which was later upgrade to Gentran Server for UNIX and SAP.
DESC was hired to troubleshoot a Sterling Gentran for Windows implementation and complete the installation of Gentran. We were able to solve the problems and get the project back on track. Due to the success we had the client decided to retain our services to manage their global trading partner implementation for a division. Due to the global nature of the client the development of maps were done in both EDIFACT and ANSI X12. This was an Order Management based project utilizing the ANSI X12 830, 850, 856, 810, and 862 in multiple versions and the EDIFACT DELFOR, ORDERS, DESADV, INVOIC, DELJIT in versions 92.1 and D97A.
DESC initially supported this clients' legacy EDI tool. When the client decided to migrate to the webMethods platform they again relied on us. We migrated their EDI infrastructure from the legacy EDI tool to webMethods 6.01.in just 6 weeks, which met a critical deadline. The purchase of an additional company led to the integration of SAP into the process. We later upgraded from webMethods 6.01 to 6.1. The project was focused around logistics where the ANSI X12 Transaction Sets 856, 810, 813 and EDIFACT INVOIC were used.
