The Challenges

Over 20 years ago Horizon Solutions began using Spedi*tran from TIE Kinetix, running on a Unix system at two companies that later became Horizon: Oakes Electric and Holmes. Spedi*tran served both companies reliably for ten years, with solid support and service.
 
In early 2000, RERO Distribution was acquired with all three companies forming what is today Horizon Solutions LLC. With these multiple companies merging, Horizon was faced with the challenge of integrating  the individualities of three EDI systems into one. With all these legacy systems involved, many elements had to be maintained as these systems moved into one updated, more powerful EDI entity. Horizon needed a flexible solution that could make this important transition seamless both internally and externally to its partners.

The Solution

Graduating to eVision from Spedi*tran was a logical move for Horizon Solutions during such a transition. Given its status as a high performance, “in-house” middleware integration server helped the decision, but its working relationship with the Infor ERP made TIE Kinetix the right vendor for Horizon. 
 
Using eVision gave Horizon Solutions the opportunity to pursue relationships only possible due to its ability to meet the EDI needs and deliver results. The decades long relationship between TIE Kinetix and Horizon Solutions speaks for itself. From support incidents, to version control and most importantly product stability, eVision has stood the test of time for its customers.
