Case Study - Fruit of the Earth

Our e.Solutions Team was asked by Fruit of the Earth, a cosmetics company that is a primary supplier to major retailers such as Wal-Mart and K-Mart,  to install and integrate an E-Business/EDI Transaction processing package with their newly installed JDEdwards ERP system. 

A large majority of Fruit of the Earth’s business was conducted through Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) with their major Customers.  As a result, the core business challenge was to integrate these high-volume EDI transactions into the newly installed ERP applications, to ensure timely processing and reconciliation of all transactions.

Our e.Solution Team analyzed Fruit of the Earth’s business processes, controls and standards to design interfaces tuned to their business and customer needs.

Utilizing the base templates and interfaces provided within the JDEdwards software a customized solution was designed and integrated that met both the company’s business needs, processes and controls.

The “Total e.Solution” provided a complete managed business process just like an accounting, purchasing, warehouse management or customer relations application, that fully integrated with JDEdwards application components and Fruit of the Earth’s fundamental business processes and controls.
