DHX is an international freight forwarder and warehousing operation specializing in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands. DHX for a number of years has provided consolidation and logistics services for a major customer staging and shipping all products going from the mainland to retail stores in Hawaii. When DHX was required to implement a new PeopleSoft/JDEdwards ERP system to increase enterprise visibility of the product supply chain, DHX chose Sitcur to do the EDI implementation. Sitcur was able to map purchase order data directly into the JDE SQL database, including to automatically populate the item tables for new products and suppliers with the Softshare Delta/ECS E-Commerce Software Server Suite.
