Title:
Beautiful Music to One Music Importer

Topic:
Automated Ordering and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Situation:
A top importer of music into the United States relied on a manual order entry process for the bulk of its sales because its existing systems could not accommodate large scale, automated electronic ordering.

Problem:
All orders had to be manually keyed in. Some of these orders were received as emails and others were received as faxes. The music importer was under increasing pressure to adapt to new and more efficient systems by it’s larger clients which included such household names as Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble and to streamline the addition of smaller mom and pop retailers.

Solution:
To deal with the music importer’s smaller accounts, Next Technology Consulting designed and developed a communication / order processing system that would receive and process a simple text file format without any manual intervention and would generate all appropriate reports. The text file format contained the minimum details required for an order. Smaller clients were provided access to private FTP folders where they could drop off their files and pickup acknowledgments, ship reports, etc. A similar system was developed for use by the larger music retailers, but using file standards, dictated by the customer. These standards include electronic data interchange (EDI) and XML. The larger clients also required real time order acknowledgements and reporting. The new automated order processing systems were seamlessly integrated with the music importer’s existing custom software solution without interruption to its daily business, and were built using Microsoft Visual Basic and Microsoft SQL Server.
