Datix, the St. Louis-based consulting firm known for its comprehensive enterprise software solutions, helped another manufacturer streamline its operations through its landmark integration platform, Unity. Euclid Systems Corporation (Euclid), is a global leader in myopia management through their leading Emerald brand of Ortho-K contact lenses, struggled to keep up with demand. With companies in the U.S. and China, the entries for overseas orders were being processed from China into Epicor® via VPN connections. In an effort to increase efficiencies, Euclid integrated Salesforce CRM for Order Entry and Epicor for Production and Financials.

Looking to streamline their two systems, Euclid sought out Datix’s experienced ERP and CRM consultants to integrate Salesforce and Epicor. Chris Stettler, CIO of Euclid, was familiar with Datix’s experience:

“Datix was the clear choice for integrating our CRM and ERP systems. As an Epicor Platinum Partner and certified Salesforce partner, the firm has the unique set of skills in both platforms that would guarantee a successful outcome. Their knowledge and robust Unity platform went above and beyond our expectations.”

Datix was able to identify Euclid’s pain points and provide a sophisticated and scalable solution. Unity syncs customer and prescription data from Salesforce automatically into Epicor, where users can utilize this information to efficiently and accurately manufacture customized contact lenses to satisfy individualized customer needs.

Datix’s Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer, Candice Evertowski, was thrilled to provide a solution that enables Euclid to continue its mission of improving the lives of patients globally by providing the best technology and highest quality solutions for myopia management:

“Euclid is a company that I hold near and dear to my heart. Their drive to improve processes and keep up with demand is driven by the desire to help children and adults worldwide that are affected by myopia (nearsightedness). They are the world’s leading prescribed product for managing myopia, giving people the freedom to have clear vision without glasses, daytime contact lenses, or surgery.”

Paul Arthur, Datix’s VP of Consulting, describes how his team went the extra mile to equip Euclid with a scalable solution:

“Euclid now has a centralized data source to eliminate communication breakdowns in their global enterprise. As the company expands, our multi-currency, multi-company solution is scalable to meet their growing needs.”

Datix CEO Matt Schuval is excited by his company’s impressive work on custom integration:

“Besides creating a custom-built map, our consultants loaded nearly 700,000 of Euclid’s ERP records from the past seven years into Salesforce within just a week. It’s this commitment to excellence and quick turnaround time that really set us apart from other consulting firms.”

However, Datix’s work with Euclid is not finished as Executive VP of Software Development TJ McDowell explains:

“Though we’ve accomplished a lot for Euclid already, there’s always room for improvement. We’re in the process of reducing the number of API calls from 18-24 per order to four. This change will dramatically speed up their operations.”

Euclid’s glowing review of Datix’s Unity integration helps support that the consulting firm’s claims of providing innovative solutions for small to midsize manufacturers and value-added distributors aren’t just talking. In their 20 years of business, Datix has honed their skills for creating seamless integrations tailored to fit each client’s specific needs. The Midwest firm continues to improve their services so they can remain the ultimate one-stop-shop for leading software solutions.
