eBridge helped Hensley/Elam's client, United States Dressage Federation (USDF) with a Sage 100 and Shopify integration
The Olympic sport of dressage is derived from the French term meaning “training” and its purpose is to strengthen and supple the horse while maintaining a calm and attentive demeanor. The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is the only national membership organization dedicated to education, recognition of achievement, and promotion of dressage.
In order to sell items like DVDs, books, apparel, and other paraphernalia related to dressage, the USDF turned to Shopify’s reliable platform on which to build their online store.
The Situation: Selling goods on Shopify produced a need for automated order entry into USDF’s Sage 100 ERP system.
USDF’s online store has been a huge success for the organization. But ensuring all of their order data was quickly, and accurately, entered into their Sage 100 ERP system was becoming a hassle for the team at USDF.
They needed to find a way to ensure that all of their important order data fields from Shopify, such as order numbers, line item codes, bill-to and ship-to addresses, etc., were accurately reflected in their Sage 100 ERP.
The Solution: eBridge Connections pre-built Sage 100 and Shopify connectors covered all the field-level data that USDF was looking for
When they reached out to eBridge Connections, the folks at USDF could tell that eBridge would check all of the boxes they were looking for in an integration solution.
They were also happy to learn that eBridge’s solution is a scalable one that can grow and adapt alongside their business for years to come. This meant upgrades to their Sage 100 ERP would pose no issues for their business moving forward, since eBridge’s connectors are constantly maintained to support version upgrades and platform changes.
What will the future hold for USDF?
Today, the USDF is an organization with more than 30 different educational programs, over 100 affiliate local or regional clubs, and more than 2000 annual awards for excellence in competition. And, their Shopify store proudly displays their products for those interested in dressage to browse and purchase.
For now, order integration between Sage 100 and Shopify is enough automation to support business processes at USDF. As they continue to evolve and grow in the future, they may wish to add inventory, shipping, product, or other data flows to their integration solution as well.
Thanks to eBridge Connections’ universal platform with pre-built connectors that can be added and removed with ease, USDF will have no difficulty scaling their solution in the future if they wish to.
