Easy to use Excellent sales and support staff

I am 10+ year user of VP, with each version the tool gets easier and more consistent across the UI, we are able to provide 100% of our customer requirements.

Pros

Seamless integration with our ERP software, the support team is very responsive and very flexible when mapping to our trading partner non-standard needs

Cons

The interface needs a little more consistency across the whole design but overall easy to navigate and use

A Complete EDI Package

ROI on software was estimated at 2 years for full payback. Based on our time savings in processing EDI documents, reduction in VAN costs, ease in implementing new trading partners, and streamlined processes, ROI was met in only 12 months. As our company has grown, Vantage Point has been stable and provided the EDI infrastructure required for our sales growth. We went from 200,000 documents a year to over 1,000,000 annually within the past few years and the software has met and exceeded our expectations. In addition, we have been able to customize the software to meet our operational needs.

Pros

Turnkey solution that was fairly painless to implement. Our company was up and running with 7 major trading partners within days. The software is customizable both from a user interface and enterprise perspective. Vantage Point provides options for the novice user/administrator up to the expert....allowing you to tailor your EDI infrastructure based on your organizational needs. Automated scheduling of EDI processes has reduced our cost of ownership and labor costs to process EDI documents. Tech support is both knowledgeable and responsive.

Cons

Error message and exception processing for problem EDI documents can sometimes be cryptic. After years of use we have developed reporting to assist with this issue. Will take novice users a fair amount of time to be knowledgeable on how to decode document errors.

Reasons for Choosing Data Masons EDI

Total cost of ownership, return on investment, and initial capital outlay were the main factors. Vantage Point allowed us to move to a new software package with ease. The alternative products were either more expensive or would require months of implementation, downtime, and costs. After 12 years of using Vantage Point, we are positive we made the right choice.

Reasons for Switching to Data Masons EDI

Previous provider took weeks to develop trading partner maps. Tech support sometimes would not return phone calls for several days. When dealing with urgent ASN/Invoice issues, we couldn't afford that kind of downtime. Cost of using an external VAN was cost prohibitive. Software was clumsy to use and the interface required years of knowledge to understand mapping, sending documents, and processing errors. We needed EDI software that would grow with our business. Vantage Point has met our goals.

Flexible Product

I would say it's mixed. I have had good and bad experiences like any software. Overall I think it was the best choice for our company.

Pros

Easy to customize. Easy to track down issues. Works well with AS2 connections. Easy to resend documents and changes INVOICE documents. The managed EDI services help our small company not have to worry so much about checking the documents are sent.

Cons

Over the years the software has had it's ups and downs but is now a very stable product. One CON is not being able to modify ASNs.

Reasons for Choosing Data Masons EDI

Data Masons integration to AX was more in line with our companies philosophy of not installing 3rd party add-ons unless absolutely necessary. Data Mason uses SQL views to retrieve data from AX and uses ports to send data back and forth.

Response from Data Masons

Replied September 2020

We appreciate you taking the time to formally submit a review of Data Masons EDI. Our customers are the most important to us and we are pleased that you find us to be a stable product and the best fit for your company. If we see that someone not 100% satisfied, we want the chance to make up for it. Starting with the not being able to modify the ASNs. Depending on what you need to do to the ASN's, we should be able to fulfill your requirements. Our system does modify ASNs. I'm going to forward this to customer support to see what they can do to assist and see what is keeping you from being a full star review.

Vantage Point is the best EDI software I've used

Vantage Point is very user-friendly software, and has been extremely reliable. Data Masons support team has been outstanding to work with - on the rare occasion we have a question or problem, they're very responsive and we get a resolution very quickly.

Pros

Vantage Point makes it easy for my business users to see and manage their EDI data, so that I only have to get involved if there's a problem. I love that Data Masons has maps already written for our customer's specs, so that development / implementation time is reduced.

Cons

It took a little time to get used to having separate instances for each country, but that has worked out well to be able to isolate our EDI partners, and the business users only see the customers they support so that reduces confusion.

Reasons for Choosing Data Masons EDI

Data Masons provided the maps to use with Vantage Point, with BizTalk we would have had to build our own maps and that just wasn't practical.

Reasons for Switching to Data Masons EDI

We were changing from a UNIX / SAP shop to a Windows / Microsoft Dynamics shop and Vantage Point was our best option.

Datamasons and VP

We have been able to satisfy all of our customers' needs in terms of EDI transactions, and they include some fairly detailed customization. The tech team knows their product inside out and finishes projects in a timely manner. They are very patient with beginners.

Pros

Our company started out knowing nothing at all about EDI software. Although there was a learning curve with VP, it was not excessive, and then things becomes intuitive. The time and tediousness VP saves us in terms of order entry and forecast loading is well worth the cost. Integration into our ERP system was easy. The Datamasons technical team has been able to accomplish every customization we have asked for, as well as train us in an area we had no experience in, and they also migrated VP to a new server painlessly and quickly.

Cons

The error messages take some time to learn to understand.
