How Mindsprint's Integration Transformed a Global Food Ingredient Supplier's E-commerce and ERP Systems


One of the primary challenges faced by the customer, a global food ingredient supplier was the siloed operation of its e-commerce site, which necessitated manual entry of orders into the order-handling ERP system. This manual process was labor-intensive, error-prone, and significantly slowed down the order cycle time. The lack of an integrated data handling mechanism between the e-commerce platform and the ERP system further exacerbated the problem, leading to inefficiencies and delays in processing orders, managing inventory, and handling payments.


MINDSPRINT resolved these issues by integrating the e-commerce platform with the existing ERP system, creating a seamless and automated workflow. This integration included automated interfacing of master data such as material master, product creation, and credit master, ensuring that all relevant data was synchronized in real-time. Additionally, MINDSPRINT automated the posting of payments made through payment gateways and facilitated automatic creation of sales orders and material/batch allocation within the ERP system. This comprehensive automation drastically reduced the cycle time per order, minimized manual intervention, and improved overall operational efficiency, enabling the supplier to handle orders more swiftly and accurately.
