Manufacturer of waterproof wall panelling benefits from stable Epicor TrueCommerce EDI integration, and improves order and POD data processing and monitoring
Grant Westfield’s products are manufactured in Edinburgh and are then distributed via its regional depots. Manufacturing data, warehouse management, deliveries, orders, and financial data are all managed and processed within its Epicor ERP system. With this heavy reliance on Epicor to process essential data, especially EDI orders and proof of delivery information, Grant Westfield was looking to upgrade its existing integration and automation solution with a new platform that could take on the tasks already being run, whilst improving stability and maintenance, as well as allowing for future functionality with other systems.

The orders we receive via EDI generates an XML file. BPA Platform processes and validates that file and loads it into Epicor. We also use it to upload our delivery runs to a proof of delivery system. Installing BPA Platform has enabled us to move the business forward without having to worry about the upgrades and data continuity. It’s quite visual and it’s easy to go back into it, pick up the thread and understand the processes.
