Enterprise Logix, LLC announces introduction of Logix/Great Plains interface.

Enterprise Logix, LLC has implemented what is believed to be the world’s first real-time, seamless interface between a full featured ERP application and Microsoft Great Plains Accounting. The solution has been in use for six months at GlobeCast NA headquarters in Miami, FL.

The Logix/Great Plains interface provides seamless transaction processing between all supply chain and logistics transactions within Logix and the sales, purchasing, and general ledger modules within Great Plains.

*The Challenge*

GlobeCast NA provides scheduled broadcast services to corporate customers who need to push video communications to geographically dispersed employees and agents. They also provide the installation and maintenance of remote receiving hardware and provide event broadcasts via satellite.

GlobeCast faced the challenges of tracking inventory, in-house and in the field, dispatching third-party field service technicians and tracking their activities, scheduling and performing multiple broadcasts simultaneously, and at the end of the process, managing vendor invoices and invoicing their own customers. These challenges were compounded by their use of multiple databases of information that were not linked, resulting in significant manual and redundant transaction processing.

*The Solution*

GlobeCast turned to Enterprise Logix to implement the Logix ERP solution. GlobeCast also contracted with a Great Plains VAR (Value Added Reseller) to implement Great Plains Accounting.

The Logix implementation went live March 15, 2005, meeting the promised implementation schedule. Because of the exemplary performance in the implementation of Logix, Enterprise Logix was subsequently selected over the Great Plains VAR to develop and implement the interface between Logix and Great Plains.

The Logix/Great Plains interface automatically transfers all sales order, purchase order, and inventory transactions from Logix to Great Plains. Customer invoices, credit memos, purchase vouchers, and journal entries recording all purchase variances and inventory transactions are automatically created in Great Plains for review prior to posting.

From start to finish, the interface was designed, developed, tested, and implemented in less than 90 days.

Tom Reiss, Senior Vice President of GlobeCast NA, had this to say about Enterprise Logix’ performance -

“Please allow me to extend a heartfelt appreciation for implementing Enterprise Logix’ systems at GlobeCast. Your enthusiasm and ability to motivate people has resulted in a significant increase in our productivity and our customers’ satisfaction. We want you to know that we are very pleased with the quality of service your company provides and we sincerely appreciate your responsiveness and the way you conduct business. We look forward to doing business with you for years to come.”
