Client wanted to make the transition from paper based information sharing to a full
EDI system, in order to dramatically increase efficiency.
This client had historically used paper communications for all information sharing,
and officially, paper documents are still required for proper record keeping. The
lengthy history of using paper based information sharing and the non-existent use
of technology for that purpose would mean buy-in around the organization would be
difficult. Additionally, the sheer size of the operation and the dramatic change
an electronic information system would be pose unique challenges. In essence, this
EDI system would be built from the ground up after a full discovery phase where
requirements would become apparent.
Sysnet Technology Solutions worked very closely with the client over a long period
of time to fully understand what the transition from a paper system to a full EDI
system would entail. This led to a detailed strategy and step by step plan for a
gradual implementation with rigorous training. The gradual implementation, coupled
with training would help increase buy-in around the organization. Working closely
with the client, gaining feedback at each juncture and adjusting throughout the
implementation process helped the organization make a successful transition to an
EDI system. This was coupled with standardized procedures that ensured the new EDI
system would continue to be successful and meet all client needs.
For the client, this was an extreme change to their organization and radically changed
their day to day operations. The strategic pace of the EDI integration by Sysnet
allowed the organization to smoothly adjust to the changes and increased the buy-in
from different departments. After the integration was complete, the realization
of benefits was immediate, as efficiency expanded exponentially and information
sharing became instantaneous between departments.
Sysnet Technology Solutions works hand in hand with Astir IT Solutions and Astir
Analytics to offer a comprehensive suite of services to our clients from the Astir
Family of Companies.
