Codeless Platforms revealed that Fashion Edge, a wholesale distributor of high-end fashion and footwear in the UK and Ireland, has vastly improved the visibility of shipping data from its supplier and improved its supply chain management efficiencies, having deployed BPA Platform to integrate SAP Business One with three external business systems and then automated the transfer of SKU data, reports, and dispatch notices. Fashion Edge has also used BPA Platform to automate the creation of good receipts, POs, and invoices.
Fashion Edge sells branded fashion and footwear throughout the UK to customers such as ASOS, John Lewis, Office, major high street chains, as well as a wide range of small independent shops. However, some of its products are sourced from a supplier base in Spain. The challenge that Fashion Edge had was the ability to control its supplier’s processes and the importation of data from the supplier into its SAP Business One system, especially as the supplier has a head office system, production system, and a separate warehousing system.
Having discussed the situation with its IT provider, Fashion Edge decided to use BPA Platform to achieve this. Firstly, to provide the integration between SAP Business One and the supplier’s systems, and secondly to automate the transfer of SKU data between the systems. Although the project has only been up and running for three months, the company is already seeing the benefits of deploying BPA Platform.
