The Board decided to integrate functioning in the company Microsoft Dynamics system with partners system and to create an electronic B2B data exchange platform. This adaptation was possible because of Microsoft Dynamics openness. Thanks to this integration was not a problem. The flexibility of Microsoft Dynamics has allowed integration of the most important areas of company’s activities as warehouse management, sales, orders and accounting.

The project of implementing B2B platform based on Microsoft Dynamics in Villa Verde is innovative in the field of cooperation with partners when it comes to change in realization and in organizing processes. The system ensures data consistency and historicity, the possibility of integration with external solutions (partner platforms) and scaling as the company develops and its requirements change. A modern database platform ensures the highest level of security for transmitted documents and data.

This solution enables Villa Verde to build flexible reports for the client and partners, with the possibility of working via the Internet.

We can now process orders faster, and thanks to EDI standards - more efficiently communicate with our clients and partners, which translates into the satisfaction of our clients and cooperation with foreign partners”
