Oldest citrus growing co-op finds sweet spot with supply chain integration.

When Sunkist decided to migrate from Oracle Financials to Microsoft Navision, they had to replace the many programs & scripts comprising the integration between Oracle and their AS400-based Sales & Distribution system, Kirkey.   As a result, the company launched a detailed benchmark test of half a dozen top integration tools.  Through their tests, they discovered that Jitterbit hit the sweet spot for highly evolved functionality while being easy to adopt (training) and support (ease of use).

By using web services, Sunkist takes advantage of Navision’s own business rules as part of the integration by triggering web service functions thru Jitterbit.  This isolates Sunkist interfaces from Navision’s backend tables/data structures, greatly reducing the impact of any changes made in the future.  Jitterbit supports Sunkist core functional needs in a cost effective suite that is easy to use and always “just works”.
