Magic xpi Optimizes Operational Efficiency and Data Integrity for Premier Jeans Designer & Manufacturer Koos Manufacturing, Inc.

BACKGROUND
Established in 1985, Koos Manufacturing, Inc. is a premier denim jeans designer, manufacturer and distributor. Owner of the AG and Big Star jean brands, the company employs over 2000 personnel in two factories, one in California and the other in Mexico. 

CHALLENGE
Operations in Koos were based on many different legacy systems, which prevented the availability of reliable, integrated data. Lack of synchronization presented major challenges, such as where orders were actually located, the actual status or orders at any given time, and the availability of products in the warehouse management system. And even though the company brought the systems into the JD Edwards (JDE) platform, they still needed a solution to ensure that all relevant data would be integrated in the JDE platform. 

Additionally, Koos sought to improve customer service and operational efficiency by automating processes across eCommerce and ERP systems, including Oracle’s JDE EnterpriseOne, Onestop, Salesforce Commerce Cloud (previously known as Demandware) and CyberSource Decision Manager (payment gateway and fraud management solution).

SOLUTION
Koos selected the Magic xpi integration platform because it utilizes innovative technology to support the integration of all external platforms and systems, and brings all data into the JDE platform; and because Magic Software is:

  • An Oracle Platinum Partner and the only Oracle Validated Integrator with a built-in, certified JDE connector for simple, out-of-the-box integration that delivers optimized connectivity to JDE/customized fields and objects
  • A leading JDE integration expert with acclaimed JDE integration expertise and 15+ years of integration & automation experience
  • An Oracle Orchestrator supercharger offering smart, flexible integration that provides intelligent connectivity from JDE to any system, with or without Oracle Orchestrator
  • A leading integrator with multiple apps, including CRM, eCommerce, logistics & HR systemsAn easy-to-use and scalable integration platform, Magic xpi’s JDE connector ensures fast and reliable data exchange and process synchronization between all Koos platforms. By integrating the account management and warehouse management legacy systems in JDE, Koos now has one system that is a single point of truth of accurate and reliable data. Furthermore, the Magic xpi integration platform provides Koos with a range of opportunities for future expansion.

""We found that Magic xpi provided us with a reliable, robust and agile solution that is easy to support and scale up. The ease of use within Magic xpi’s code-free environment made the complexity of our business process integration easier to architect and implement.""
