HARWINTON, CT, July 19, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- CAL Business Solutions Inc, a Connecticut Microsoft Dynamics ERP software partner, released a new case study highlighting the success of a Microsoft Dynamics GP integration project for Fusion Trade, a Massachusetts based distribution company.
Fusion Trade is a wholesale broker of electronic and computer components. They run lean, with a small but active team that generates over $2.5 million in revenue per employee. The company needs software applications that work reliably and can be easily used by their small team to avoid any downtime.
Fusion Trade was using an old legacy "green screen" accounting software for their financials plus a separate proprietary trading and procurement system developed internally for inventory control. This trading system is critical to their business. But the accounting system was no longer supported by the vendor, which put them in a precarious situation. "The old technology was not getting any better, we were just band-aiding it. But everybody was comfortable with the system, so we just kept saying we could go one more year, then another year. We rode it as long as we could," recalls Brian Ronan, Controller, Fusion Trade. Fusion Trade evaluated several ERP packages and chose Microsoft Dynamics GP for core financials. The next step was connecting it to their internal trading system. They chose to work with the Connecticut based team at CAL Business Solutions based on the team's reputation as Microsoft Dynamics GP integration experts.
Using Visual Studio .NET and eConnect the development team at CAL Business Solutions created a direct link between Microsoft Dynamics GP and the internal sales and inventory system. "Every 4 hours data is automatically pulled from the internal system and builds GL, AP, and AR transactions in Dynamics GP. It keeps our large database of customers and vendors in sync," Says Brian Ronan. The integration does all of the needed data validation and sends an email alert to notify the Fusion Trade team to review and post the entries. No more double entry, no more missing information, and data is synced 7 days a week to keep up with international sales.
"Their custom trading system is a competitive advantage for Fusion Trade; now it is even more powerful based on the integration CAL developed with a strong financial system." Says George Mackiewicz, President, CAL Business Solutions, "No company should just assume they need to replace a custom system or live with the frustration of disconnected systems."
Fusion Trade now has a solid core financials application connected to their business critical industry system. They have technology and support that they can rely on, allowing Fusion Trade to confidently grow their business.
