BlueCherry EDI Consulting

BlueCherry EDI Consulting

Has CGS put you into an EDI corner that you cannot get out of?   Is your budget taking a hit with CGS’ high $225/hr rates and the 6-8 weeks to add just one new partner?  Do you know that there is another option for your EDI processes with the Data Integration Specialists’ BlueCherry EDI Consulting Group?

The DIS BlueCherry EDI Consulting recognizes that CGS has produced an excellent BlueCherry Apparel/Textile application for your ERP business processes but why is there only one option when it comes to EDI?  The outrageous consulting rate of $225/hr is exorbitant and adding new Trading Partners with just a simple 850 PO, 810 Invoice and/or the 856 Adv Ship Notice should not be a long , arduous process.  The DIS BlueCherry EDI Consulting Group offers rates over 20% less and will guarantee a trading partner is live and in production in 1-2 weeks.

What about integration to BlueCherry?  Well, as is testament to the multiple BlueCherry clients who have switched from CGS to DIS BlueCherry EDI Consulting, we have built the schemas for all of the major retail/distribution/3pl transactions and EDI production data is flowing without the high costs and long timeframes.  In addition, our BlueCherry EDI resources have a minimum of 18+ years of EDI experience and many have even worked at CGS.
