Background

Starplast has been a leading plastic manufacturer for over 40 years. With a broad and comprehensive line of product offerings that include food storage containers, plant pots, tool boxes, and baskets, Starplast helps people better organize their life at home, in the garden, or at the office

Problem

Starplast sells its products to big box retailers like Target, Walmart, and Bed Bath and Beyond, which requires the use of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology.

When Starplast replaced their old accounting software with Microsoft Dynamics GP, their IT consultants at the time chose to develop a custom EDI solution that would bridge into their Dynamics GP software.

Unfortunately, this custom EDI solution caused a lot of problems and brought their implementation to a halt, which had a significant impact on their bottom line as Starplast’s entire business depends on EDI. After several months, Starplast reached out to MIBAR.net to take over the implementation of their Dynamics GP system, including the integration of their EDI solution.

Solution

Upon taking over their implementation, MIBAR.net recommended that Starplast adopt an established EDI solution built specifically for Dynamics GP.

In partnership with TrueCommerce, a simple and affordable end-to-end EDI solution, MIBAR.net was able to quickly implement Dynamics GP system with a fully integrated EDI solution and get Starplast up and running, enabling them to continue their relationships with their big box retail customers.

Benefits

By working with MIBAR.net, an experienced partner that could rapidly and effectively implement their Dynamics GP system with a fully integrated EDI solution by TrueCommerce, Starplast was able to cut the cost of their ongoing implementation and return to conducting business as usual.

By partnering with TrueCommerce, an end-to-end EDI solution that offers all four major components of successful EDI under one roof, Starplast was able to reduce their total cost of ownership by nearly 45%. In combination with MIBAR.net’s successful implementation, the TrueCommerce solution has also enabled Starplast to reduce manual data entry of purchase order information, improve data accuracy, and create invoices in just minutes.

“From the beginning, MIBAR.net has been an excellent partner in getting our Dynamics GP system not only functional, but tailored specifically to our operations. Their depth of knowledge and their willingness to scale their services to fit our needs is why we will continue to use them for all of our business system requirements.” Steve Nash
