Sam Prestipino Systems Technology Director Implus Footcare
Implus Footcare, a successful international distribution company, is currently home to 13 core brands, including Little Hotties, Sneaker Balls, and Yaktrax. The company’s products are sold in drug stores, big box retailers, and sporting-goods stores throughout 65 countries. Implus Footcare requires an efficient, streamlined supply chain, and relies on MAPADOC EDI to help keep its products on the move.
MORE POWER AND FLEXIBILITY
The company had been using Sage 100 as its accounting and distribution software, but the large transaction volume was pushing the software’s upper limits. When Implus Footcare made the move to Sage 500 ERP, it decided to replace the company’s existing EDI software at the same time.
“With our previous EDI provider we were not able to do any of our own mappings; even simple changes required the publisher’s assistance,” recalls Sam Prestipino, Systems Technology Director. “Our customers’ requirements change frequently and we need the ability to work with our own maps to respond quickly. Our Sage business partner recommended SWK Technologies and MAPADOC.”
With MAPADOC, Implus Footcare has the tools it needs to make any changes to its existing maps and create entirely new maps. “We received excellent training from SWK. Now we are equipped to respond to our customers’ changing requirements right away,” says Prestipino.
