Calypso Sings Praise of Inovis for EDI
December 4, 2007 Alex Woodie
English soft drink manufacturer Calypso has tapped Inovis to supply Internet-based EDI capabilities enabling Calypso to streamline its order-taking process, Inovis announced last week.
According to Inovis, the 129-year-old drink maker based in Tattenhall, Cheshire, relies heavily on its Value Added Network (VAN) to funnel orders into its i5/OS-based System21 ERP system. However, the previous VAN used by Calypso was slow and unreliable, and that put the company’s business at risk.
“EDI is a business critical system for Calypso,” says James Holmes, Calypso’s IT and CRM director. “Over 80 percent of our orders by volume are received by EDI, with next-day or day-after delivery.”
After moving to Inovis’ BizManager software and its Inovisworks VAN, the speed and reliability of Calypso’s EDI processes has increased considerably. “Inovis’ solution just works,” Holmes says. “It gives us the speed and reliability that we need without even having to think about it.”
