We were so fortunate to come across Beacon as being a provider for our EDI-needs, we're a small business and have not had any prior experience with EDI transactions.

EDI Provider Beacon is based out of San Diego California. The HEAD Company Inc. is a sports equipment and clothing company, known mainly for their alpine skis and tennis rackets and they are based out of Amsterdam. The company has a distributor in the United States that needed help selling their products to a major retailer Academy Sports + Outdoors.

Alpha Racquet Sports based out of Austin, TX partnered up with Beacon EDI to meet EDI Vendor Compliance requirements. Beacon EDI helped Alpha pass all the required EDI testing from the first attempt. The first set of Advanced Ship Notices (ASN) were also successfully transmitted to Academy without any issues.

It is challenging for smaller size organizations to meet the vendor compliance needs of large retailers. That's where Beacon EDI stepped in as a subject matter expert in this field to help out Alpha Racquet Sports. "Our team members have a passion for EDI and have previously worked for large retail chains in the compliance and EDI departments," noted Alex Perlin of Beacon EDI Inc.

"We were so fortunate to come across Beacon as being a provider for our EDI-needs, we're a small business and have not had any prior experience with EDI transactions. Beacon has been more than helpful and patient with us during this process, educating us on the EDI methods as well. Thumbs up to Beacon!" said Mark Gonzalez Sales Representative for Alpha Tennis, Yonex, Athletic DNA, Maggie Mather

In the past, all of Alpha's orders were for Stringing Machines and were sent to them using a traditional fax machine whenever Academy opened a new store. Now, Alpha Sports is EDI capable with Academy Sports + Outdoors.

Alpha was glad to have the capability to print EDI UCC-128 labels directly from the web. This was key for them because of their low volume, they could not justify buying a barcode label printer from Zebra or barcode label software from Bartender.
