Mizuno trusts Ephlux for their JD Edwards EDI Integration with SPS Commerce

Mizuno USA relies on Ephlux to integrate their JD Edwards ERP’s supply-chain and EDI processes with their top trading partners in the US.  Mizuno is one of the world’s leading sports goods manufacturers with a massive global presence and headquarters in Japan.

Ephlux helps Mizuno deliver EDI integration of their JD Edwards ERP with SPS Commerce, leveraging our strong experience and success stories, working with equally complex integrations with other large customers.

Mizuno Corporation is a world leader in sports equipment manufacturing. In particular, Mizuno’s baseball equipment is considered one of the foremost brands, and the manufacturer’s irons are the leading clubs used on the Professional Golf Association tour. As of 1997, six of the past ten Masters winners had played with Mizuno irons. The company produces its products in-house and maintains offices and dealers across the globe, including in Japan, France, Canada, Germany, England, Taiwan, and the United States.

Problem

Mizuno USA, as part of their major EDI integration initiatives, needed a reliable partner with solid track record of delivering complex JD Edwards integrations across multiple supply chain systems. They needed to integrate their JD Edwards with some of their top trading partners including but not limited to Amazon, Dicks sporting goods, Sports Academy and Zappos using SPS Commerce EDI platform.

They wanted to work with a world-class partner with strong expertise on JD Edwards integration technologies including EDIs, Business Services (BSSVs) and latest digital transformation toolsets including AIS and JDE Orchestrator.

They needed a partner who could not just provide value to their immediate integration needs, but can also be a long-term partner for their other digital transformation, integration and enterprise mobility initiatives.

Solution

Ephlux brought to the table its strong expertise and experience with complex Supply Chain integrations across multiple industries and systems with strong knowledge and a successful track record of consistently delivering for other large enterprise customers.

Ephlux put together a specialized team of JD Edwards integration specialists to align, plan and execute with our partner SPS Commerce (our partner and the leading EDI platform provider) and with Mizuno Supply Chain and IT team. The functional specs of the common EDI protocols and tables that were most important across the trading partners were initially analyzed to extract the common integration scenarios and data mappings.

Once that was done, the team then focused on the design and development and testing of the EDI interfaces and integration scenarios between JD Edwards EDI tables with SPS Commerce platform.
